The Importance Of Trust In A Relationship
We’ve all heard how trust is one of the most important factors in a relationship and how it’s one of the top things everyone is looking for in a partner, but why exactly is that the case? Why is trust so important in a healthy and happy relationship? Here’s some of the reasoning behind the importance of trust in a relationship:
- Gives you the ability to be yourself. If you can’t fully trust someone then you won’t be able to let your guard down and be yourself around them. When we trust someone fully we can let go of the need to be “on” all the time and can relax and let go. If you’re afraid of being judged or made fun of or hurt then you’ll never be able to fully relax into the relationship.
- Lets you reveal your true feelings. You’ll never be able to express how you really feel about your partner if you’re afraid that they’ll hurt you or that they’re not taking your emotions seriously. When you trust someone you can really open up and let them into your heart, otherwise we remain guarded with our feelings.
- Allows us to imagine the future. You’ll never be able to see a future with someone that you can’t trust because you won’t be confident that they’ll be there for you. If you don’t trust them you can’t be sure that they’ll stick around or that you should include them in your future plans. If you want to start imagining a future with someone, you need to be able to trust them and rely on them.
- Lets you fall in love. If you can’t trust your partner you’ll always be guarded, cautious and holding back. Doing this, we can never fall in love. It’s called “falling” in love because we need to let go and just let ourselves fall. If you don’t trust that your partner is there to catch you, you’ll never be able to let go and let it happen.
“A local administrator from a small town in Kenya is making a huge impact through social media.” That’s how @ChiefKariuki was introduced at the annual Google Ideas conference in the US late last week.
The Lanet Umoja administrative chief gave a simple yet practical presentation of how he has been using Twitter to send and receive alerts and messages to residents of the location.
“There was a time when bees attacked school children and the teachers called me. I sent a tweet asking parents to come with blankets to cover the kids. Within a few minutes, the parents came and all the kids were rescued except one who succumbed to the bee attack,” explained Chief Kariuki.
The Chief, who has over 26,000 followers on Twitter, was looking for an easier way to communicate with Lanet residents.
“I looked at how Twitter works and how I could reach over 28,000 people living in Lanet Umoja easier and cheaper way. The Twitter to text service by one of the networks provided an easy way to reach people who do not have smart phones,” explained Chief Kariuki.
