Trusting Relationships - How Do you Create Them?

Here are some smart ways to create trusting relationships:

• Gain confidence in your own perceptions by paying attention to your doubts and instincts.

• Ask yourself -- does your partner keep important promises or agreements

• If your partner lets you down, don't always assume that a failure in competence is intentional -- sometimes people simply make a mistake. 

• Listen to your partner's side of the story. Make sure your words and tone of voice are consistent with your goal of rebuilding trust.

• Keep in mind that learning to trust is a slow process. You were born with a propensity to trust others but through your life experience you may have become less trusting as a way of protecting yourself.
