5 Ways to Re-Build Broken Trust

Heart Rings       Trust, love, respect, communication and God are five important parts to your marriage that help build the foundation of a successful union. As we looked back on our years of marriage, we experienced that if both spouses have a sincere relationship with God……trust, love, respect and communication will ALL fall into place. For that is what God gives to us for trusting, believing and living for Him. 

But, when one of these vital parts are compromised, the marriage can become weak and begin to shake. Knowing how to re-build trust, re-love, re-gain respect, re-evaluate and change our communication, and know how to pray are the keys to lead us to the success that we all hope for in our relationship. We are going to tell you how to achieve all of these. In this article we are going to show you ways on how to re-build the trust in your marriage. Whatever your situation is, take one or all of these ways and apply them to your relationship. Share your results in the comment section below.

       1.Take responsibility for your mistake. Don’t shift the blame. Shifting the blame discredits your truth and creates a bigger barrier of mistrust.

       2. Give your spouse an opportunity to change. As long as they are changing, credit their progress and never bring up their mistake out of spite.

       3. Even if it may hurt, be completely honest with your spouse about the mistake. Answer all the what’s, when’s, where’s and how’s sincerely and truthfully. This is how the healing starts.

       4. Prove your words, with your actions. Your words are only as good as the actions you put behind it.

       5. Forgive. The true process of trusting again begins when forgiveness has taken place.
