The psychology of trust in love is often challenging, confusing, and complex. For most healthy relationships, trust is the foundation of love and happiness, but it is not always easy to trust or to cultivate an environment where trust can be built.
Many people ask themselves, “How can I build trust in my relationship?” and “How can I trust my partner to do what’s right, what’s fair, and what’s loving?” These are great questions with complex answers, but there are a few strategies that GeoZilla would like to share that can help you build trust in your relationship.
This post is for readers who want to have a trusting relationship and practical ways they can create a culture of trust with their significant other and family. It’s for the person who wants to act and live honestly and transparently with their loved ones in a way that increases happiness and health. It’s for those who want to take better care, not merely track.
1. Follow Words with Actions
One of the best ways to build trust in a relationship is to make sure that you follow your words with deeds. If you say that you will do something, you follow through and deliver on your promise. Overtime, this will mean that your partner can come to depend and rely on you in a way that is trusting and healthy.
Following words with deeds is not always as simple as it sounds. We are all human, and the complexity of life sometimes gets in the way of what we would like to do if everything were up to us. For example, you might not always be on time, but it is key to strive to show up for your partner.
One of the best ways to follow your words with deeds is to show your fidelity and honesty by being open. If you say you are somewhere, show that through an app like GeoZilla which can track your location and show your partner your fidelity to your word. It may be enough for both parties to know they have the information if they want it or need it in an emergency.
2. Keep your promises.
When you make a promise to someone that you care about, and you keep your promise, it will strengthen trust and make your relationship stronger as well. Your partner—whoever they are—will remember the gesture and want to reciprocate it.
This means that you should, of course, be careful with your promises as they can also backfire if you are not able to meet them. Never rush to make a promise that you are unsure you can keep because the risk of losing the good faith of your partner is real.
Promises are made everyday. They can be big or small. And, a geolocation tracker like GeoZilla can help you demonstrate that you are keeping your word and promises by showing your partner where you are at any given time, giving them peace of mind and reassurance in your promise. There’s no need to track every move of your partner over time because trust will be solidly built.
3. Create Openness and Honesty
There is a saying that “Secrets don’t make friends.” And, in many cases, such as in healthy relationships, secrets foster mistrust and misplaced faith. The very idea that someone is hiding something can bring up another person’s deepest fears and insecurities.
If you want to build trust in a relationship, another excellent option for you is to keep things open and honest. Involving your spouse in decisions you make, money you spend, and events that you attend can really go a long way into helping your partner, friend, or family member to trust you.
While it is not always easy to be so communicative, honest, and open, some technologies can really help. GeoZilla is designed to give families and couples reassurance and satisfaction in knowing where their loved ones are and whether they are safe. You can try GeoZilla to give your relationship a boost in transparency and openness.
We have explored how trust in relationships is one of the most central and important factors in a healthy, satisfying, and happy partnership. These partnerships exist between all kinds of people including marital partners, family members, and even close friends.
Also, we’ve touched on how demonstrating your words with actions, keeping your promises, and leading with openness and honesty can help you create a culture of mutual trust and happiness in your relationship.
We want to emphasize in closing that trust is a two-way street and our GPS tracker is not right for everyone. It is important that trust be mutual and agreed upon. For example, if you choose to use GeoZilla to invigorate your relationship with demonstrated honesty and openness, then it’s essential that all parties agree to use the technology.
Our GPS technology is as much about trust as it is about openness. We don’t believe in tracking your partner’s every move just for the sake of it, instead we want to promote openness of information and better communication in relationships so that everyone feels cared for, safe, and respected.
