When honesty is breached in a relationship...

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.

And your thoughts?

I can relate to trust issues, sometimes it can not work out even if one of the parties try to make it work out and gives more then the other.  Sometimes it will be a no win situation.

Trust is the fundamental glue of a good relationship.  In business transactions, when that is breached it can be saved, but sometimes it is much better to walk away.  A

When we break down the trust in a business relationship, things can go south in a hurry.

I hope this is a business relationship and not a personal relationship.  One is more painful than the other.

The older I get, the less patience I have for those that are not honest and have some hidden agenda that they don't want to share.

Will, A business relationship depends on honesty between two parties, if that is lacking, there is not a viable bond.

Alexandra, Yes, it is better to walk away, quickly!

Dale, When someone gives you their word, they are bound by a promise but do not always follow through. 

Bill, Dishonest intentions are not meant long in business or in personal lives.

Gene, Lying is destructive and hurtful in both cases.

Debbie, I do agree!

Gabe, My patience is better used for other things!
