5 Tips for Building Trust in a Relationship

1.  Set Boundaries

Set your boundaries as a couple. What is acceptable and what is not acceptable? Let your partner know how you feel about certain behaviours and negotiate boundaries for your relationship together.

2.  Nurture the Trust

Trust is something that can take a long time to build and a short time to be lost – be aware of this, cherish it when you have it and try to behave within the boundaries of your relationship.

3.  Consider Each Other

Consider your partner when making a decision that may affect them. Consider how your actions may make your partner feel and whether it will affect the trust within your relationship.

4. Build Each Other Up

Remember in an ideal world, couples should be building each other up, not tearing each other down. Try to encourage your partner, compliment them and let them know you care often.

5.  Be a Team

Work together to address and overcome external pressures on you and your relationship. Avoid taking it out on each other and use that energy to help each other get through the difficult or stressful situations that life throws at you. Let your partner know that you are on their team and that you will help them to get through difficult times. Bohatala
