7 Ways to Rebuild Broken Trust  

Trust is one of the key components for healthy relationships.  Shattered trust will severely crack any friendship, family relationship, or marriage connection.  Broken trust may occur from lies, abuse, infidelity, financial secrets, etc.  Shown below are 7 ideas to rebuild trust in order to restore a relationship bond.

1.  Acknowledge the problem.  The offender must admit that their words or actions demolished the trust.

2.  Sincere repentance.  The offender offers either a verbal or written genuine apology. 

3.  Request forgiveness.  Just saying “I am sorry” is not enough because asking for forgiveness helps validate a repentant attitude.

4.  Choose to forgive.  The offended person needs to offer forgiveness to begin the reconciliation process. 

5.  Restorative words and actions.  The offended person may make a list of words and actions for the offender that will restore faith in the offender.

6.  The offended needs to risk wisely.  Please use reason and logic and understand that rebuilding trust increases 1% at a time through truthful words and honest actions.

7.  Trust is a percentage.  Realize that no one is 100% trustworthy but the higher in the 90th percentile a friendship, family relationship, or marriage is the more likely for a satisfying relationship. 

Today:  If necessary, begin using these 7 steps for rebuilding a broken trust in order to achieve the goal of a healthy reconciliation.

 7.  Respect your spouse’s opinion even though it may be different than your perspective.

MONDAY MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE

 

Similar to the wisdom of Proverbs, every Monday I will share a practical wisdom quote.  I pray this quote will make a difference in your personal life and relationships.  

 “What counts in making a happy marriage is not so much how compatible you are but how you deal with incompatibility.”  Leo Tolstoy

Five Qualities For Dealing With Life Problems

Life is not fair and filled with continual challenges.  Developing mental toughness is an important goal in order to handle various life issues.  Shown below are 5 qualities that can make a difference when a life trial arises. 

1.  Embrace change.  Be flexible and willing to adapt when change occurs because changes are part of daily life.  Recognizing that some type of change is always just around the corner builds mental toughness. 

2. Be confident.  Henry Ford said, “Whether you think you can, or think you can’t—you are right.”  Overcome any doubt by making things happen and believing in your abilities and talents.

3.  Be positive. With God by your side, have the internal strength and character to find solutions for life difficulties.  When a life crisis occurs have the belief that “I can and I will cope with this problem by searching for answers.” 

4.  Avoid toxic individuals.  Negative, difficult people are emotionally frustrating and can easily drain you and pull you down rather than make your stronger.  Toxic people only hurt your positive attitude.

5.  Let go of setbacks.  Focus your attention on what you did right, not what you did wrong.  Forgetting the past and living in the present moment will empower you toward success.   

Today:  Begin using these 5 qualities and develop more personal assets through daily reading of positive materials.
