The 5-Stage Plan To Build Trust

Because trust is a key part of how to get the passion back in your relationship, you need some effective strategies for increasing it. So how do you start building trust again when you feel you’ve lost it? Here’s a 5-stage plan that works.

Stage One: Commit to putting your partner’s needs first and declare that absolute commitment to your partner. Say this: “I love you no matter what, irrespective of what we’re talking about now or ever.”

Stage Two: Create heartfelt emotion for your partner so you can both heal and feel loved; stop, breathe deeply, hold each other and connect. Stay here until you eclipse negative feelings with love and gratitude.

Stage Three: Share your true feelings, and listen to your partner’s thoughts carefully, without judging, correcting or fixing. Accept their feedback and respond with love. When communicating, make sure you utilize all of the important verbs that make up the language of love such as to give, receive and play.

Stage Four: Lack of passion in a relationship is often the result of not enough shared interests, experiences and goals. Align your needs with your partner’s so you can connect with a common vision for your relationship and future together.

Stage Five: Always end any tough conversations with some act of love, such as a hug, a promise or a kiss. If you can’t do this, you need to repeat each of the previous stages until you are able to feel at peace with each other.

Simple enough, right? Now commit to it, practice it and master your relationship. Over time, these actions will become second nature.
