How Lying Affects Relationships – Trust is Essential in Relationships
Interpersonal relationships are so important. Having people in your life is essential to feeling connected and happy. When we have trouble in relationships, it affects our mood, our feelings of success, and our interest in activities.
Our connection to others is based on our ability to share and receive information with them. Sharing information with someone takes trust in their respect for your information. When people share with you, that is based on their belief in your ability to take care of their information. That necessitates that the person sees you as an honest person.
Engaging in lies of any kind will damage relationships because it interferes with others ability to trust you with their feelings and their information.
Trust is essential in relationships and trust is created through honesty.
Lying in relationships is more complicated than just not telling the truth. The reasons that people lie are multiple and the consequences can be severe. Healthy relationships will require you to pay attention to body language, communication, and honesty.This New York Times Best seller examines why people are dishonest with others and themselves: Canada: http://amzn.to/2wLdmZyUnited Kingdom: http://amzn.to/2wkMjmOYou can find Violet here: www.violetreveira.comAll product links are amazon affiliate links.
