in relationships:trust and understanding
April 22, 2008 10:58am CST
the basic foundation in a relationship is more on trust whether it be a loving relationship, friendship or prfessional in nature. it is hard for us to trust in a world we thrive on because of how we have percieved "our" world to be but it is vital for each and everyone of us to do so specially to people we are so close to, we have to give each others respect in doing things and have faith because if we don't then the very basic foundation of a relationship crumbles. we have to understand that we all have our own ways of doing things and it is a matter of finding a common ground to make the relationship work. it takes time and patience to know each other, at the very least.love cannot be the sole reason for having a relationship , it is a combination of everything and it all starts with trust and understanding.

I agree with you. Trust is a vital element in any relationship. Its hard for me to trust people cause I have been disappointed in the past. But I am sure I have disappointed people before too. I guess the important thing is to be able to sit down and talk to someone and tell them if they have broken your trust and to forgive them if you can work through it with them. Some people though you will never be able to trust. I have run into a few people who are compulsive liars and will lie about anything no matter how small or big it is. I think it might be best to cut all ties with that kind of person.

You're absolutely right. Trust and understanding are the keys to a good relationship. Sometimes different people have different opinions, and this might lead to arguments or even quarrels, but it'll be fine as long as you don't try to force other people to perceive the world only in your ways. If you respect others and would always put yourself in their positions, the world will be a better place.

Yhea your right and I agree with you on that. Without trust and understanding relationship will not last. It is the root word of respect of one another. You can give more love to that person if you have the full trust and understanding you can give. In some point it is hard to give it to one person but for me why I should not gave it to the person that must deserve it.

tigerdragon_ how very elequent and well written. I will add one thing to your combination for a healthy relationship. Communication! If someone can't talk to their partner and be understood, the relationship will falter and fail. Perception is part of communication. A woman might perceive her husband's comments as mean or unfeeling and if she doesn't tell him, he'll never know he's an idiot who can't communicate clearly.

Acceptance and tolerance is also important. Not everything in our relationship we get to understand. So we should learn to be tolerant...of mistakes...of imperfections..and accept them as they are. It could be hard because there are just some things that we could never understand but in order for the relationship to succeed we should learn to let it be.
