Final Considerations About Rebuilding Trust
Trust is easy to lose and hard to regain.
Rebuilding trust requires a lot of understanding and commitment from both sides. But without trust, or taking immediate steps to get it back, our relationships far apart quickly (also, see other steps you can take to improve your relationship – healthy relationships).
A lack of trust often leads to more suspicion and harmful discoveries only putting our relationships in even greater danger (see living with suspicion).
As such, it helps to rebuild trust before relationships pass the point of no return—when feelings of anger and betrayal run too deep to repair.
