Trust is key to any relationship! It can take your whole life to build trust and just one mistake to break it. Trust is a dicey thing. It is the most difficult thing to establish especially after a betrayal! Once you betray a person, it’s difficult to gain trust again.
Betrayal happens when you cross the boundaries when you misuse your power by doing something wrong. Even if you keep on repeating the same mistake again and again like deceiving or lying to your partner, then also it will be counted as a betrayal.
So if you want to continue your relationship with someone you have betrayed, you have to work hard to rebuild trust and repair it take to make your relationship survive, but how? Here are three ways by which you can how you can you rebuild and repair your trust factor:
Apologize for your mistake:
Show genuinely that you are sorry from the core of your heart!If you are the one who has betrayed or broken the trust of your partner, then the very first thing you need to do is acknowledge your partner’s feelings and apologize for hurting them. Show genuinely that you are sorry from the core of your heart.
Make sure that this was the last time you have made such a mistake and from now onwards, you will never do it again. Take responsibility for what you have done, and make every effort to show your love and care for your partner. Show them that you are true and you will never repeat the same mistake ever in your life.
Promise to never repeat the same mistake again:
Learn from your mistake!Promise your love that you will never ever repeat the same mistake again. Be real this time— one which you mean and intend to keep. Mould your behavior accordingly and show to your partner that you mean what you said.
Not everyone learns from their mistakes, so be the one who learns from their mistake. You are able to take the situation, look back on it, realize what you were doing wrong, and then never do it again. If you realize that it was truly your mistake, then have the dignity to realize that you were in the wrong, and repair their actions for the next time. The most important thing is realization; realize and say in front of the mirror that it was one mistake that you would never make again.
Analyze the feelings of hurt:
Try to analyze how much you have hurt that person!If you are the one who has betrayed then understand your feelings. Try to analyze how much you have hurt that person--- the person who trusted you, who have full faith in you. You have broken the trust of that person.
Do not deny or dismiss the thought about how much you have hurt the love of your life. So introspect on questions such as, ‘How deeply I have hurt someone? Why I’m feeling bad for the other person? What do I want from this relationship?’
Answer these to yourself; you will reach a conclusion.
