Four Questions To Overcoming Trust Issues

  • Do my reactions line up with reality based on facts or my thoughts based on past issues, and experiences? This step may take work that you will need to take time for, before trying to embark on another relationship. Find ways like mindfulness, and therapy to work through those automatic thoughts, and overcome past programming, so that you can respond with a clear mindset when connecting with others.
  • Have you practiced non-defensive communication? If you are responding in anger, or without clarity, the chances are that the people you will encounter will also get defensive, and the opportunity for communication and trust-building is lost. Practice a combination of listening skills and proper, open ways to communicate.
  • Are you direct and clear about your needs and boundaries? People are not psychic, and they express themselves differently, even have different ways to express being and feeling loved. Being open about how you communicate, what your needs are is important in any healthy relationship of any kind – romantic or not.
  • Are you willing to be open and honest? If you are not willing to give honest responses and be clear, and open to see a potential positive interaction than you can expect others to respond to you in that way. Be trustworthy to attract trustworthy people into your life.

Remember the road to overcoming trust issues starts with yourself – not with other people – and only if you are willing to do the inner work, do you have a chance of having trustworthy, open, and productive relationships.

  1. ahhhH!!! I love your blog (: I’m all about shifting mentality, paradigms and general outlooks on life. I think something as simple as motivational quotes can be as powerful as a well needed swift kick in the arse! “Trust is a good business practice.”― Jim Blasingame .. i really enjoy this one ;p I’m involved in business myself, and i don’t there are words that ring truer than this lol 

    Great post! Look forward to hearing more from you in the future!!!!! 😀

      thank you, Koda – I am glad that you enjoyed this post – yes quotes are powerful, but I always try to leave you all with something that you can take action about – may it be the questions, I left you with today, or may it be some exercises you can do throughout your week.

      I hope you will use those and the quotes to propel you to the future you are hoping for – blessings! 

  2. I love this quote, – trust your instinct, ———-, never take any thing for granted. Many a times we fail or fall into problems, we did not listen to that little voice (our instinct), saying hold back, don’t go forward. This is just because of lack of trust as a result of poor training. We can train our mind and instinct to work the right direction

      Indeed! Training our minds is the most important work that we can possibly do – blessings!
