Why Lack of Trust Is RUINING Your Relationship (and How to STRENGTHEN It Instead)
When you’re in a relationship with someone, it is comforting to know that you are able to trust them. That is, you’re able to rely on them to support your needs and you’re confident they have your best interests in mind.
But perhaps there’s times when someone violates that trust and you’re unsure whether your best interests are in fact a priority for them. Maybe this leads to feelings of jealousy or a breakdown in communication. Lack of trust has actually been shown to be one of the main factors related to conflict and dissatisfaction in relationships.
