Over the years I have heard people talk about how much they love their partner, but they cannot trust them. Some as a result of the past mistakes the partner might have committed and some people just seem not to trust their partner because they just can’t trust anyone. I have come to understand that you can actually love someone without a doubt but don’t trust them.
But the truth be told, you can’t be completely committed in a relationship, or to a Person you don’t trust.
Below are Four Negative effect of lack of trust in a relationship:
1. Insecurity: Negative assumptions and actions are prevalent among insecure people, says psychologist. Insecurity comes into your relationship when you don’t trust your partner, when you are insecure in a relationship you are open to danger, you don’t feel protected, and when you don’t feel protected you can’t feel love. This will cause a lot of anxiety to you and will affect your confidence in the relationship you involve in, and over time it will destroy your relationship.
2. Reduce intimacy: Reduced intimacy happens when a Person Focuses on the mistrust you have towards your partner and this leads to suspicion, and suspicion of a partner often prompt a Person to pull away physically from their partner. Pulling away overtime kills the relationship and leads to breakups.
3. Depression:Distrusting a partner in relationship can lead you and your partner to depression.Constant fear and worrying over negative things you feel your partner is likely going to do to you will lead you into depression. This constant fear and Negative feelings will take away your joy, peace and put you in a saddened state all the time.
4. Anxiety: There is an increased level of anxiety when you don’t trust your partner, you are always in a state of continuous consternation. This anxiety runs into your relationship and the mistrust experienced creates anxiety in the partner that eventually may require medication or therapy to overcome.
when we don’t trust our partner, we’re prone to exaggerate their negative behavior and discount their positive behavior. Because the positives have much less weight than the negatives. We’re much more likely to constantly question the worth of the relationship.
Trust is one of the cornerstones of any relationship, without it, two people cannot be comfortable with each other and the relationship will lack stability so if you ever want to have a healthy and balance life learn to trust people, cause Distrusting people don’t just affect your relationship with your partner, it can also affect every other relationships you are building .
