Questions about the meaning of trust and how couples can establish it in their relationships frequently come up in my practice as a couples counselor. Trust is a cornerstone of long-term relationships. My wife, Yvonne Rainbow Teplitsky, is a fashion designer, artist, and owner of the Artsy Goddess Studio. In the 25 years I have shared with her, trust - in each other, and ourselves as individuals - has carried us through better or worse. Part of Rainbow’s mission is to help heal ourselves and the world we live in. And sincere apologies, she says, not only bring healing to couples but are also an essential ingredient to a relationship’s longevity.
In today’s episode, Rainbow and I emphasize the importance of trust in relationships. We discuss the value of trusting yourself in bringing the kind of partner you want to be in a relationship. We share some of the challenges and issues we have navigated throughout our life together and underscore the need to trust that each person will help move the relationship through conflict. We also illustrate the power of cultivating friendship with your partner and how appreciation can drive a relationship through the years.
“Apologizing well is a huge key to good long-term relationships. It brings so much healing.” - Yvonne Rainbow Teplitsky
