Just about all of us will have our trust betrayed at some point in our lives.
This may be at the hands of a cheating partner, a friend who shares a secret told to them in confidence, a medical professional who harms instead of heals, or a parent who mistreats or belittles us instead of validating or encouraging us.
Possibly all of the above.
Every time trust is betrayed, there’s a little bit of damage done to us at the very core of our being.
And when trust is broken many times over the years, it can be very, very difficult to ever truly trust a person again, in any form of relationship.
This article will explore what trust is, how trust issues form, the signs that someone struggles to trust, and how to get over trust issues.
