Trust is something that’s only earned in any relationship. We only disclose lives to friends we trust, and we only build partnerships with people we trust as well. The same can be said for relationships. It is difficult to re-trust someone especially if you had high hopes for that person and he ends up breaking your heart. However difficult this may be, it is possible to bring back the trust in your relationship.
Not all people are perfect, in fact, a lot of us fail in this area. Breaking someone’s trust doesn’t always mean having an affair, or lying, or doing something grave. Breaking someone’s trust can also mean failing to do the things you promised or repeatedly doing things that you know your partner doesn’t like.
Bring back the trust: It is possible!
Even if you feel like you can’t bring your heart to trust your lover as you did before, let me tell you that it’s possible!
Because love always believes and hopes for the best. Take a look at this verse:
“[Love] always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” 1 Corinthians 13:7
If you love your partner, and I mean truly love, you will always believe in his or her best. So if you are willing to trust again, you should always be willing to start anew, no matter how difficult it may seem. In this post, we will be looking into ways of how you can bring back the trust in your relationship, whether you’re the one who had the heartbreak or the one who caused it.

1. Don’t bring up the past
Anything in the past should be left behind. Remember that bringing up mistakes done in the past will never help. It will only cause more hurts to resurface and won’t help the present. The past is a part of your relationship where both of you learned something. It’s supposed to be an experience where both of you can grow.
However, it can also be a double-edged sword when the both of you are stuck in it. How would you feel if you had a conversation and your partner started bringing up random things in the past? You wouldn’t like it, would you?
So don’t bring up the past to prove a point in your arguments, as this will be the way to bring back the trust in your relationship.
2. Be extra patient
You may notice that once your partner breaks your trust, you may start to nitpick and become impatient. Every small move becomes something you dissect and overanalyze. Do not let this happen to you!
Make sure to be extra patient. This means that you should not analyze your partner in your old lenses. Make use of fresh ones, those lenses which are ready and willing to be patient, be understanding and be forgiving. This is one of the hardest things to practice when you’re trying to bring back the trust in your marriage.
3. Affirm your partner
Saying “I forgive you” is one thing. But saying “I trust you” is another thing. This means that you love your partner enough for him to hold your heart again. He will be more motivated and feel more responsible if you affirm your partner. Let him know that you are willing to give yourself again so that he will be more likely to do things that would prevent your trust to be broken once more. Affirmations help in making your partner understand that you trust him, but at the same time, you are hoping that major mistakes won’t happen again.
4. Be proactive
Trust also means setting an example. Some people will say “give only when others give you” but the Bible says:
Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing. 1 Peter 3:9
Overturn the mistake and repay it with good. Do the things that you want as a change in your marriage or relationship. If you want your husband or boyfriend to be trustworthy, set an example also by keeping true to your word and doing what you said you would.
5. Expect setbacks
Trying to forgive and trust your partner again doesn’t mean your relationship is immune to setbacks. It just means that you are preparing yourself for the storms that will still come along your way. So although you don’t want another set of problems, anticipate that they will come along from time to time.
The best couples are not those who don’t experience storms, but those who stay strong despite it.
Bring back the trust: Do something about it
Don’t just read and forget. Make sure to put these things into practice.
