Where does lack of trust stem from?
In relationships or marriages a lack of trust usually stems from one party being unfaithful or lied to. A breakdown in trust can be hurtful for all parties involved and you can begin to question everything you once thought to be true. Often when there is infidelity, one party may begin to question themselves or even begin to see themselves differently. Often one may wonder what they did wrong for their partner to not be honest or faithful. Situations like these can really affect one’s self confidence as well as trust.
Individuals that don’t have direct trust issues with their partner but experience this more within themselves may have experienced an incident earlier in life. This may come from family experiences where they felt rejected or not accepted by certain members and they now exprice a fear of letting someone close enough again that could reject them.
Trust heavily replies to the people around you and what we experience through life. We have expectations that those around us will behave a certain way and when that is not met, it can affect many parts of our lives.
