Top 5 Ways to Combat Trust Issues in Your Relationship
Trust is the numero uno factor in any relationship, the foundation that binds a couple together. At times couples face trust issue no matter how old the relationship is.
You might wary about your partner’s recent change in behavior or his/her excessive interest in a newly found friend, sudden change in attitude, styling etc which might be baseless. It is also possible that your partner does not trust you, feels insecure or does not believe you, or is simply keeping a watch on you of late.
The mutual trust that one is there for the other no matter what may come and sense of security and certainty should prevail for any relationship to flourish.
Your self esteem might be the cause – Personal insecurity and sense of inferiority can come in the way. When your self esteem is low you feel you are not getting your worth or your partner is not giving you proper attention although it may not be the fact. Work on your own development, talk to your partner and if required take his/her help; after all don’t we consider them as our ‘better half’.
Brush off any past incident – Our past experience may deter us from trusting our partner. Bitter experiences like facing unsuccessful marriage of parents or relatives as a child, abused in childhood or in teenage, being cheated in past relationships, may sometimes haunt us and make it difficult to trust anybody. Even it might hold us from developing a free and comfortable relationship with our partner. Past must not be so powerful so as to hamper our present and future. We must brush off such memories and get into a relationship with open mind.
Sense of Togetherness – Spending time together is very important in a relationship. It is true that we hardly find time because of our professional and other personal commitments. Although a couple stays together, eats together, sleeps together, but still cannot take out quality time for each other. Instead of having dinner at home you may sometime opt for going out whether in a well-known restaurant or one in a street corner, plan for a weekend tour whenever possible, and go for shopping together. Togetherness brings sense of love, joy and fulfillment and of course loyalty and trust.
Open communication – If you have any issue that is constantly nagging you, talk to your partner about it. Tell your partner what is making you uncomfortable. Have an open communication so as to find out whether such issues are true or baseless. If your partner is feeling insecure or having trust issues, sit with him/her and try to understand what exactly is bothering your love. Openness will help you both to come closer and renew your relation.
Counseling – Lack of communication or time for each other sometimes drifts us from our partners in such a way that we lose the comfort zone in-between. Even if an issue however small or big is bothering the couple, it becomes difficult for them to even come to talking terms. An atmosphere of bitterness, fury and discomfort holds them to get into a healthy conversation. In such circumstances family members or trusted friends can come up to sort out things. A couple might also take help of a marriage counselor or a relationship counselor. Though the counselors are not immediate family members, but with their vast experience in the field, can find out the real issue and sort out or advise them that help them to gradually come closer.
