Trust issues . . . and then some
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!
