It seems pretty simple and easy to say that there should be trust for a relationship to sustain and thrive. When I am talking about relationships, it can be any- love, friendship, family.
But as easy it may sound, it is actually very difficult to hold onto trust in a relationship. Or, is it?
Well, I have personally experienced until this point in life that trust is actually the most important thing in any relationship. We are surrounded by so many people. We come in contact with some of them, we get to know them better and we tend to develop relationships with a few of them. We usually end up getting close to people we think are like-minded.
(This would be interesting to note that WE maybe tend to look for OURSELVES in the other. This could start a whole new debate based on psychoanalysis. But let’s not go there today!)
Relationships we build with people are precious. We pour our love and care into them. We trust them with our eyes blindfolded. Generally, we expect the same from the other person too. Very often, trust is something we do not feel the need to talk about in our daily conversations. It is because we know it is there.
And then, what if either of the ones in any relationship breaks it? It hits one in a massive way, doesn’t it?
Let us Remember:
If trust is that unspoken beauty that binds a relationship, it is sacred.
If trust is something that the other person does not/ cannot keep, that person was never meant to be in a relationship with you in the first place.
If trust is not given due importance, do not consider that relationship worth it. Do not waste your time on toxic people and similarly toxic relationships.
It is actually not very hard to keep trust in a relationship. In fact, it is pretty easy. IF and ONLY IF, the people involved in that relationship are worthy of your time, love and friendship, trust comes easily.
But, first, trust yourself. You are worth it. You are strong, independent and great. Learn to understand the people around you. And stay away from toxicity. If you are shattered because someone broke your trust, get over it as soon as possible. That particular someone was not meant to be with/around you. You will find better people in your life who are going to respect your trust. Invest in those relationships instead.
Love yourself. I hope you have a wonderful week ahead 🙂
