Trust plays an important role in any relationship. Those who have had to deal with lies, betrayal or betrayal know how hard it is to believe a person again. Mutual open and honest communication has many advantages: it strengthens the relationship itself, gives confidence and calmness and is only beneficial to partners. Agree, it is much more pleasant to deal with people with whom there is no need to constantly stay on your guard and think: "Isn't he deceiving me?"
1. Be honest with yourself
It all starts with the personality. It is important to cultivate honesty with yourself. This is the basis, the basis on which to build open relationships with others. Being honest with yourself means being sensitive and attentive to your feelings, emotions, thoughts, this is the ability to accept shortcomings in yourself and admit mistakes, without criticizing or scolding yourself. It's difficult at times, but the effort is worth it.
2. Trust yourself
Trust is a certain resource that helps to move forward, a kind of inner support. If you trust yourself, then you broadcast a sense of confidence to others. Otherwise, people will unconsciously perceive you as an unreliable person.
3. Be honest with others
This does not mean that you should post everything you think about, or tell any details about yourself. Dose information, but do not lie: it is better not to give an answer to a provocative question than to be branded as a deceiver.
4. Trust other people
This is difficult, especially if you have had negative experiences in your life, but try not to dwell on the bad and rely on good memories of good and honest people who have been in your life. A priori, consider others worthy of your trust, because this promotes free and open communication. Of course, this does not mean that you should believe everyone - naively and unconditionally. Everything should be within reasonable limits.
5. Think about the consequences
Before you start a relationship with cheating or dishonest behavior with your partner, think about the consequences. How will a deceived person feel, and you yourself, when this lie is revealed? Hiding lies is difficult enough, it causes constant anxiety and takes a lot of emotional strength. An honest person feels much calmer and freer.
6. What to do with other people's secrets?
You were told a secret and the magic phrase "don't tell anyone" was heard. What to do? First, find out how long it needs to be stored: after a certain date or event, the topic may no longer be relevant. Secondly, learn the phrase “I can't let this person down” - and boldly pronounce it to all curious people. Thirdly, if you have already promised to be silent - do not blurt out! Think about how the person who confides in you will treat you - and hold back.
7. Listen to each other
Try to listen to each other and, just as important, hear! After all, you can talk about your experiences, problems, thoughts, but all the words will go away, as if in the sand - this happens if the partner nods on duty and ignores the words. It is worth a lot when they hear you. And it helps to build an open and trusting relationship.
8. Talk to each other
Communication plays a leading role in any relationship. You should not focus only on yourself and tire the interlocutor with your problems - take an interest in his deeds and thoughts on various issues. Try to speak openly, but remember that if you don't like asking questions, it's better to be honest about it than to look for tricks and get away from the conversation. This behavior is alarming.
9. Trust needs to be learned
If trust has once been severely undermined, it is difficult to restore it, but still real. And it's worth the effort! Constant tension in relationships with people is very burdensome. When you feel distrust, then ask yourself what exactly alerted you, and try to clarify the situation with the interlocutor, and not come up with "horror stories" yourself. In some cases, it makes sense to seek help from a psychologist, a specialist will help you cope with deep fears and stop expecting a dirty trick from others.
10. Take responsibility for your life
To cheat or not is a personal choice. The tendency to lie is a vivid indicator of the level of a person's development, because it is characteristic of adolescence, when a person does not want, cannot, or simply is not ready to take responsibility for his actions.
It is necessary to distinguish between systematic deception and falsehood as a defensive reaction. It may well be that the person who made a mistake is afraid to admit, does not want to upset or disappoint loved ones with their behavior. There are no rescue lies, this is a myth. Any deception will be revealed sooner or later. This understanding is another reason for an open and honest relationship.
Of course, people do not always want to know everything. And probably there are moments that are not worth sharing - but this is not about betrayal or betrayal, but about deeply personal things that you want to keep only for yourself. Experience shows that living absolutely without secrets is unrealistic. But the less falseness in a relationship - the happier, longer and more successful they will be!
