Bookmark and Share
Trust is essential for every relationship, may it be with your parents, your spouse and even your kids. Aside from love, trust is a very essential element in a relationship. Without trust, relationship won't be successful. Trust is not something that can be developed overnight. You have to work and gain the other person's trust. It requires continuous effort. Trust is hard to build but can easily be broken by a single mistake. In this article, you will find tips on how to repair the broken trust.
The first step in building trust back is to know how you feel. Know if you really love your partner and what happened was a terrible mistake. However, if you are still having doubts about your feelings then it is best to let it cool down for some time until you will become certain on what you really feel.
Once you know how you feel and you are determined to win your partner's trust back, then admit your mistake to your partner and apologize. Take full responsibility over your actions and never blame what happened to anybody. Bear in mind that your partner is hurt for the moment, thus, never expect her/him to believe you right away. Stay calm and patiently listen to what your partner might say.
Once your partner is ready to engage in a conversation with you, then discuss with him/her about what happened in the relationship. If you committed the mistake because you felt that there was something lacking from your relationship, then be open about it. Talk on how you can revive the passion in the relationship.
In order to gain your partner's trust back, be open and never keep secrets from your partner. Even to the tiniest detail always be open about it. Make your mobile phone always open, let your partner meet your officemates and friends and let your partner know you will be home late and inform him/her the reason why. It may be a long way but it is the way you need to take to gain back the lost trust.
Lastly, to gain the trust, be respectful to your partner. Be a good listener to him/her, show how you care and learn to empathize. Always be there for your partner. Showing your partner that s/he can count on you anytime will make them trust you back.
These are just some tips on how to regain back a lost trust. After a trust has been broken, you will never know what will happen next. However, if you really love your partner, then show him/her you are sorry by making efforts to make it up to him/her, through this you will definitely win him/her back.
