When honesty is breached in a relationship...
Two parties enter into an agreement with said goals in mind. Both are eager, sign paperwork and thus begins the process of diligence toward achievement. Each depends on the other for good communication, follow up and follow through.
Somewhere along the line, trust is breached.
Once that happens, the relationship becomes tainted, suspicion arises, impeding the process and the team mentality stops working. Both are adversely affected by the actions of one. Can the relationship be salvaged and both parties still gain desired results?
Well it depends upon severity of the offense.
Ego determines the outcome in many cases. A sincere apology may be enough to start mending the brokenness, although self-preservation dictates setting boundaries between the two. Regaining confidence takes much determination and patience along with clear-cut stipulations.
Not every relationship needs to be saved.
When someone callously undermines another, with no remorse, there is no reason to continue. It becomes an unhealthy environment, weak to the core and is one-sided. It is not a matter of -IF- but -WHEN- another occurrence takes place. Better to get while the gettin's good, in my opinion!
TRUST is an essential component in any relationship and much like building a house. If the foundation is built strong, it will sustain any weathering storms but -IF- based on deceitful intentions, it becomes unsafe and will coming tumbling down. It's just a matter of time.
