According to psychotherapist David Richo, all the major relationship struggles are fundamentally trust issues, whether it's fear of commitment, fear of abandonment, communication problems, jealousy, or a tendency to be controlling. In Daring to Trust, he explores the importance of trust throughout our emotional lives: how it develops in childhood and how it becomes an essential aspect of healthy adult relationships. Richo emphasizes that developing trust in others begins by developing true trust in ourselves—in our feelings, our body, and in our inner voice—and he offers practical exercises for exploring and enhancing our sense of trust. Topics include: How we learn to trust in relationships; Why we fear trusting; How to know if someone is trustworthy; What to do when trust is broken; Developing trust in ourselves as the basis for trusting others.
