The problem with relationships is they ask us to trust someone else, and that opens the door to being hurt. This leads some people to choose not to trust (and quite often to be control freaks), the result of which is those people hurt themselves through the stunted life they lead. The self-protection of attempting to control others is a destructive illusion that precludes healthy relationships. You are either in or out, there is no such thing as an authentic, halfway relationship.
One thought on “Trust and Relationships”
In a relationship, one is vulnerable. Some individuals fear being vulnerable and attempt to control their partner as a means of protecting or shielding themselves. Trust takes time to develop, but with mutual trust there is no need to fear being vulnerable.
