Trust is­sues . . . and then some

The Star (St. Lucia) - - THE LIGHT SIDE -

need to be on the same page. You have your own ex­pec­ta­tions of the level of trust you want in a re­la­tion­ship, and this is re­ally about whether or not the per­son you’re with is will­ing to meet those stan­dards. You can only re­ally meet peo­ple where they are; not where you want them to be.”

I felt that in a sce­nario that re­volved around trust there were two op­tions: spend time apart in the hopes of com­ing back “in a mu­tual place of love and re­spect” [ac­cord­ing to re­la­tion­ship guru Matthew Hussey, whom I love!], or de­cid­ing, af­ter ef­fec­tively com­mu­ni­cat­ing your needs in a re­la­tion­ship, whether or not the other per­son is at the place where they can meet your stan­dard, and sup­port a re­la­tion­ship that is con­ducive to trust in the first place. I ex­pressed that much to my friend, and she made up her mind to have a con­ver­sa­tion with her beau about where they stood. She and I both re­al­ized peo­ple could learn to trust more, but what is even more im­por­tant in a pro­gress­ing re­la­tion­ship is for both par­ties to do all they can to make it easy to trust and build a re­la­tion­ship that is truly on a solid foun­da­tion of love!
