    What are some ways to build trust in a new relationship?

    Starting a new relationship can be both thrilling and terrifying – a beautiful mix of freedom and vulnerability. Perhaps the most important, yet often overlooked, aspect of this budding connection is the necessity for trust. To build a genuine relationship it takes patience and the practice of three essential elements: vulnerability, integrity, and commitment.

    The first step in creating a strong bond between two people is establishing an atmosphere of openness and honesty. Sensitivity to each other’s needs and valuing each other’s ideas creates a crucial foundation for any relationship. In order to foster genuine trust, one must learn how to recognize and respond to their partner's emotionally charged moments. When a partner decides to practice emotional vulnerability and share their innermost thoughts and fears, they extend their trust. And when this trust is reciprocated, a strong bond develops.

    Integrity is another key factor to consider when trying to build trust. A commitment to keeping one’s word and avoiding other temptation that could fraternize or distract from the primary bond, must also be made. Integrity involves understanding the value of a shared promise and adhering to one’s own boundaries. Mutual respect and acceptance, along with recognition of the importance to secure your partner’s well-being, is a cornerstone for any secure relationship.

    Commitment is the bedrock of a successful relationship. As couples grow together, they learn how to compromise, maintain a healthy mix of independence and togetherness, and take accountability for their actions and words. Knowing that one’s partner can be counted on, in both good times and bad, is invaluable. A true partnership comes from understanding that both individuals will make mistakes, but ultimately, commitment will give each of them the courage to move on together.

    By fostering a culture of emotional openness through vulnerability, carrying out self-integrity, and pledging a mutual commitment, two people can create an unshakeable bond of trust. Replacing fear with assuredness is integral to any healthy new relationship, and the practice of these three elements will help to make it happen.
