It’s become more and more difficult to remain vulnerable, trusting, and open to life in this era of uncertainty, global upheaval, divorce, and disrupted family life. Fortunately, many of us have friends and family members we can count on, or a relationship partner we can turn to as a safe haven where we can let down our guard, relax, and be ourselves. But sometimes even here, things can get rough.
Everyday stress intrude into our protected space or an unexpected relationship problem disturbs our calm, we may begin to feel insecure and self-doubting. We may also begin to doubt our partner’s love, loyalty, and trustworthiness. Without realizing it, we may react to these doubts by pulling away from our loved one in subtle ways.
does trust rest on such shaky foundations? On the other hand, wouldn’t it be risky to be too naive and trusting?
Mistrust, doubts and suspicions are strongly influenced by the critical inner voice. This destructive thought process is part of the defense system we built as children; it consists of an internal dialogue that is antagonistic to our best interests and cynical toward other people. The critical inner voice is the culprit that triggers trust issues in people’s closest relationships.
Trust is very Paramount in relationships,therefore once someone fully entrusts you,you ought to make sure they don’t lose trust in you.
We live in a world where a decision made depends on someone’s choice. Getting to trust to somebody is a choice not an obligation and the choices we make have consequences.
