You can never fully say that you love someone if you don’t trust them. Trusting someone means that you believe in that person to never betray you and your relationship. It means that you have confidence that they are capable of keeping the promise you’ve made to each other and that they value your relationship as much as you do.

Although fully entrusting yourself to someone is rather difficult, you need to have faith in them because being distrustful can sometimes reflect how you truly feel about yourself. At times, some people project to others how they feel and see themselves. You might have been doing the same too, you just don’t notice it. Remember that for trust to exist and continue to exist, you need to trust yourself first.

Here are some quotes about trust in a relationship to reflect on:

1. “A trusting heart will follow, only those who truly follow their heart.” – Anthony Liccione

2. “Deciding whether or not to trust a person is like deciding whether or not to climb a tree because you might get a wonderful view from the highest branch or you might simply get covered in sap and for this reason many people choose to spend their time alone and indoors where it is harder to get a splinter.” – Lemony Snicket

3. “Everyone suffers at least one bad betrayal in their lifetime. It’s what unites us. The trick is not to let it destroy your trust in others when that happens. Don’t let them take that from you.” – Sherrilyn Kenyon

11. “Relationships are mysterious. We doubt the positive qualities in others, seldom the negative. You will say to your partner: do you really love me? Are you sure you love me? You will ask this a dozen times and drive the person nuts. But you never ask: are you really mad at me? Are you sure you’re angry? When someone is angry, you don’t doubt it for a moment. Yet the reverse should be true. We should doubt the negative in life, and have faith in the positive.” – Christopher Pike

12. “The beginning of love is the will to let those we love be perfectly themselves, the resolution not to twist them to fit our own image. If in loving them we do not love what they are, but only their potential likeness to ourselves, then we do not love them: we only love the reflection of ourselves we find in ” – Thomas Merton

Harm is inflicted; it’s a choice some people make.” – David Richo

18. “Trust is like a mirror, you can fix it if it’s broken, but you can still see the crack in that mother fucker’s reflection.” – Lady Gaga

30. “Trust is the glue of life. It’s the most essential ingredient in effective communication. It’s the foundational principle that holds all relationships.” – Stephen Covey

The assurance that there is someone you can depend on can bring happiness and contentment. However, in any kind of relationship, both ends should do their part to make sure that the relationship can last. This is achieved when both of you have trust in yourselves and each other.
