When Trust Is Gone in a Relationship

Once trust is lost, for whatever reason, it is very difficult to reacquire it

People often mistake that the key elements of a healthy relationship are sex, wealth, happiness, appearance, and feats in common, but the most important of all is TRUST.

It allows us to share anything with our partner, get closer to one another, and help us build a better long-term relationship based on honesty, mutual goals, and communication. Without trust, none of these features would make it possible to push the relationship further because neither one of you would feel comfortable not knowing the direction of where the relationship is going. Once trust is lost, for whatever reason, it is very difficult to reacquire it.

I met a woman named Alicia, she’s a 34-year-old mother, who asked me for advice on how to trust her husband again after being cheated on.

As a housewife, Alicia stayed at home as she watched her husband leave home for work, thinking her husband one day may cheat on her again. Day in and day out, her mind was clouded with thoughts of his history of unfaithfulness. Seeing her husband leave for work overly dressed than normal made her panic and become anxious. Day by day she struggled with those assumptions.
