Trust is an incredibly powerful, foundational part of healthy relationships. It is something that must be earned, built, and maintained to build healthy and close relationships. Broken trust is often the underlying cause for many marriages and relationships to come to an end. Once trust has been broken - it can be very difficult to rebuild.


So how do you show your partner how much you trust them? How do you maintain and continue to build trust in your relationships? How do you repair your relationship after trust has been broken?


Today, I share different ways of showing trust to build healthier relationships. I share how fidelity and trust are manifested and explain the difference between privacy and secrecy. I also share personal stories that show how trust is broken - and earned - among friends and family and how to open yourself up to trusting others while still keeping your personal boundaries.



“Trust is one of the most crucial building blocks of becoming emotionally intimate and deeply close with someone. It’s a must for any healthy and close relationship.” - Pripo Teplitsky
