Building Trust in Relationships

I dont know about you but, trust in a relationship is one of the most important qualities that is a must in any relationship I have. Trust is the firm belief in truth or ability or reliability of someone or something.  Trust is a part of any relationship, whether personal or professional.  Trust is an ongoing action that must be built on throughout any relationship.  A relationship without trust can be challenging, ineffective and can have a lot of uncertainty and fear involved.  Having a high level of trust can result in more meaningful connections, self-confidence, lower stress and increase optimism.  In forming high levels of trust, it is important to reflect on one’s own behaviors as well as characteristics of how you form trust with others.  Keep in mind these behaviors and feel confident to communicate them in your relationships if you feel that they are lacking.  One of the key factors of trust is maintaining an open and honest relationship.  The following tips can be used in the workplace, school or in personal relationships as well.healthy-relationships-2Bc2Gd.jpg
