If you are not a trusting person, then you may have been wronged in the past. Consequently, professional psychological help may be beneficial. People who have had a relationship breakdown, for example, often find it hard to become trusting in an intimate sense down the line. In such cases, counselling as a couple can help to build up confidence in one another and to enjoy the happiness
that often comes with greater levels of surety in the relationship. In many cases, forgiving wrongdoing is a good first step in overcoming mistrust. Remember that forgiving, in this sense, does not mean forgetting. As such, mistrust is not likely to disappear overnight just because you have found it in yourself to forgive someone else. What it represents, however, is the ability to move on from what may have cause mistrust to develop in the first place. Many people find this approach liberating, but it is not necessarily easy to achieve.
