Trust Part 3

3 Mar

Eventually lack of trust will tear away the initial fabric of connection and have to be dealt with by candid and open discussion so that each party can clearly express what areas of trust in their relationship are absolutely critical and what areas each can live with.

This ‘awakening’ is most typically catalyzed by an event that threatens the status of the relationship and both parties are forced to address it though genuine communication and most often with some professional therapeutic help.

Adult relationships deal with issues of trust differently primarily because we can choose to have or not have the relationship in most cases. We don’t have this choice with our children.

Trust is an attribute of the child-parent relationship that is first created by the adult, then built over time by our conscious actions and considerations. It is more of a one way effort rather than the sharing that a typical adult relationship needs.
