Doing the right thing is a difficult thing to do.
But, no matter how hard it is, it is the right thing to do. Doing the “right thing” is obviously the right thing or it wouldn’t hold the description of “right.”
And, in relationships, while building trust between partners, the right thing is always the best thing to do.
Often times you’ll hear the little voice in your head or gut telling you exactly what the right thing to do is – if you might imagine that you don’t know what it really is. It’s the right thing to keep your word to others, to tell the truth, to honor your parents, to be honest with yourself and the people you know and to keep the confidences that are shared with you.
Interestingly, you tend to attract people who are like you. If you do the right thing for the most part, you’ll attract others in your life who also do the right thing. When you put in the hard work to do the things you may not want to do, you attract others who do the same.
When you DO the right things you also build your own self-esteem. When your self-esteem is higher, you enjoy your own company more and so do others. Not doing the right thing also sabotages your belief in yourself, increases your self-doubt and reduces your self-esteem.
Each of these factors are important when you are building trust with your partner. Without good self-esteem on your part, youíll find it more difficult to remain attractive to anyone else as you are struggling to maintain a relationship with. People are able to sense your insecurities, which makes them insecure in your relationship. It’s a vicious cycle that perpetuates a poor outcome.
Doing the right thing can be difficult, it can be a challenge. However, when you are trying to build trust between you it is the smart thing to do. Doing the right thing is also something that gets easier and easier each time that you do it. Itís like a muscle that grows stronger each time you use it. And, each time you do your partner trusts you even further.
