How To Quickly Fix Your Relationship Trust Issues
"I love my boyfriend, but I don't know if I can totally trust him."
"My girlfriend is acting suspicious. Am I crazy?"
"How do I prevent trust issues from ruining our relationship?"
"How can I learn to be more trusting with her?"
At some point or another, you're likely to experience trust issues in your relationship.
Whether it's brought about by infidelity, a decrease in your own self-esteem, your partner's newly hired young assistant, or a simple change in your partner's behavior, your relationship can weather this storm and rise above feelings of uncertainty.
Follow these tips to solve the trust issues you face so you can experience the thriving relationship you deserve:
Work on your self-esteem.
Many trust issues in relationships that were once thriving stem from personal insecurities. If you've experienced significant changes in your appearance or noticed a drop in your self-esteem, it's important to build up your body image and self-worth in order to rebuild the trust in your relationship.
How's your self-esteem?
Reflect on your past.
Did something happen in your childhood that has caused you to become wary of trusting your heart to anyone? Did your parents choose to divorce when you were young? Were you sexually abused in the past?
Any family trouble in your past?
Talk about any indiscretions.
If there has been infidelity within your relationship, it's vital to hash out all hurt feelings and future expectations.
Has infidelity been a problem?
Recommit yourself to one another.
Sometimes a relationship needs a sign of recommitment and devotion. Do something special together that signifies that your love can and will overcome anything.
Are you truly committed?
Spend more time together.
Both you and your partner are constantly changing internally and your needs and wants are also subject to change. Ensure that you're truly there alongside your partner to witness and be a part of those changes by devoting more time to one another.
How much time do you spend together?
Trust is about more than believing that your partner will remain faithful.
It's about trusting that your partner will always be there for you in times of need, while also being a prominent part of the most important events in your life.
Work on your trust as romantic partners - and as best friends - to truly guarantee a fruitful union.
