Steps to rebuild trust in a relationship
Here are some steps you can take to build trust in a relationship once again:
1. Don’t be hasty
While diving headfast into fixing a relationship can feel like the best thing to do, moving too fast can put a lot of stress on you. So, don’t rush the process! Depending on the betrayal, it can be difficult to forgive your partner instantly. But at the same time, you might feel pressured to take a decision. However, what is important is the healing process. “Your healing is important to be able to build the trust back and give it another chance,” says Shivam.
2. Do it for the right reasons
What you need is to “focus on why you are willing to make this relationship work. Your values and your need matter more than anything else here.” So, decide what you want to do. Do you really want to pick up the pieces and mend the relationship? If you don’t want to fix it, you are downright walking into something toxic.
3. Be conscious of their behaviour
Healing begins when your partner owns their mistakes! They show regret and remorse, not just damage and pain for what they have done. The expert says that you should be conscious of your partner’s behaviour. “More than actions and words, it’s the behaviour that speaks the truth of the person.”
