‘If we can face the truth we can learn and start to move on’

Have you been be­trayed by some­one close to you? Whether it’s a part­ner, close friend or rel­a­tive, de­ceit can have a dam­ag­ing im­pact on any re­la­tion­ship. It’s not al­ways easy, but with the right in­put it is pos­si­ble to over­come and es­tab­lish a hap­pier, more hon­est re­la­tion­ship.

COMMUNICATE

“One of the first steps to re-build­ing trust is to re­view what’s gone wrong and why,” says Hay­ley Bys­tram, Match­maker and founder of Bowes-Lyon Part­ner­ship (www.bowes-ly­on­part­ner­ship.co.uk). Was the per­son who has lost your trust aware this would be the con­se­quence of their ac­tions? If not, then both par­ties need to be ex­plicit about their ex­pec­ta­tions and lay down some ground rules. Some­times we re­alise it was just a sim­ple mis­un­der­stand­ing – or that we’re sim­ply not com­pat­i­ble.
