55 Rules For Love – Rule #47 – Trust

More Than Sexual Fidelity

Trust is more than being sexually faithful to each other. Trust is having faith is what motive lies behind your partner’s actions, trusting their word, and their ability to have your best interest at heart.

Trust is Earned – Not a Right

Trust is earned over time when actions match words. Words can be so empty. It is the integrity of actions aligned with words that create trust. Complete honesty is scary, but very necessary. Sometimes truth hurts, but is softened when communicated with compassion. This level of honesty is not easy, as it has been my experience that my own issues get in the way and I project insecurities rather than being able to identify what it is I honesty need to communicate.

Keeping Secrets

My husband would tell you that I am an open book. I don’t keep secrets. He’s right on that. If I do keep something from him, it is because I know in my heart whatever I’ve done is going against the grain of what he would like. But, my conscious will never let me keep a secret from my husband. I’ll always tell him. Difficult conversations aren’t easy, but are necessary.

Trust Takes Time

Trust is a beautiful reward when two people truly commit to each other. Trust takes time with a lot of awareness, transparency, difficult and uncomfortable conversations, compassion and heart. Trust deepens. Feels comfortable. Safe. Like a warm and cozy sweater on a cool autumn day.
