Trust is a very big, important thing and it is so precious because it’s very easy to break it and it’s really hard to gain back. You have to be very careful with it, it plays a very big part in everyday life with your family and friends. “Trust is a firm belief in the reliability, truth, or ability of someone or something.” -Oxford Dictionary.
Trust is a very big test in any relationship and it shows how strong your relationship is with you and the other person. It is a key to any relationship because it allows you to trust the other person and you can open up to them without having to worry if everyone else will find out the next day. Trusting the other person will really build your relationship up and strengthen it. It is the glue of any relationship because think about it if you didn’t trust the other person, why would have you got together with them?
Developing trust from when you first meet someone is really important because it also counts as first impressions and by gaining their trust, you have to be honest with them, you have got to try to show them by being sincere with what you say to them and how you act towards them. Otherwise they’ll be unsure as whether you are trustworthy or not. By becoming closer friends, your trust will have got stronger and will have helped you in gaining their trust and developing your friendship etc. You have to be careful because this can be easily broken and it’s hard to gain back.
Whatever has happened to lead for someone not trusting you, you have to fix it because if you don’t the other person might think that you don’t care about them or your relationship, friendship with them (only do this if you’re in the wrong). Tell them how you really feel about the situation you’re both in because it could let them know that you are really sorry and this is one of the first steps in building back up your trust with them.
Now, it’s not going to be easy because nothing worth having comes easy and by showing the other person, you’ll do whatever it takes to gain their trust again, it’ll prove to them that you care about them and about your relationship together. This will probably take a while but let time heal it and it will get better but you just need to take it easy because they other person might not feel as ready as you are. You need to be patient with them, this will also show how willing you are to become close with them again. Soon after that, hopefully they will trust you again. Did you know that having an argument with someone and then coming back together shows, how strong your relationship is with them and that you can handle any situation with them?
