Everyone has been hurt at some point in their life or discovered something someone didn’t share voluntarily. Being dishonest in a relationship breaks trust and hurts other areas in the relationship, such as intimacy. You can read more about intimacy here. Trust and honesty are two key essential elements to any successful relationship. Aren’t they the same thing? No, they are completely different. However, one effects the other. Trust is an emotion, a firm belief that someone is reliable. Honesty is being sincere and truthful. If you want to be trusted you have to be honest. You can’t have one without the other. Honesty is the BEST policy. Below you will read about the four reasons why women need trust and honesty.
Four Reason WHY:
#1– Trust and Honesty must be apart of the foundation of every relationship. You can’t build a house without a sturdy and solid foundation. No house built on a shaky foundation will have a healthy future. Women need to know that they have a strong one to build upon. If the foundation is shaky they are less likely to continue the building process. The firmer the foundation the more open she will be to connecting with you.
#2 – Women need trust and honesty because it makes them feel safe and secure. They need to have certainty. They need to feel certain that you will be there to love and protect them. This removes worry and fear of abandonment. This can make or break relationships for women. This also gives a great deal of comfort to women. They will give you their best and your relationship will thrive.
#3– Be truthful about what you are feeling. If she did something to make you upset don’t walk around distant express your feelings. If you hide the way you feel she can’t fix the problem or correct the action. You also miss the opportunity to grow your relationship. When you are honest it brings peace, healing and boost communication for the both of you.
#4- No one wants to live a lie. Living a lie is hard work. Be yourself and don’t try to hide who you are. Women want to know who you are. They don’t want to uncover something about you years down the road. Early on in our marriage my husband hid certain things from me because he honestly didn’t want to hear my mouth. We both had an image of what marriage “should” look like. I can admit, if he didn’t measure up to my “image” I was judgmental. Difficult truths can be worked through only if they are shared and talked about before the lie is uncovered.
The best relationships are the ones where both people are being honest and trustworthy! Even if it means having the hard and awkward conversations. When you have these conversations it deepens the love and connection. In turn you are building trust in your relationship. Trust takes years to build, seconds to break, and forever to repair!
Do you think trust and honesty is hard to maintain in relationships? If so, why? If not, why not?
