Renowned relationship expert and the author of ‘Lust, Love And Lemons’, Shahzeen Shivdasani, delves into the most significant challenges faced by modern relationships and offers insights on rebuilding trust and connection. She asserts, “In contemporary times, trust holds utmost significance in any relationship. If trust is compromised, it has the potential to dismantle everything associated with it. Addressing issues arising from a breach of trust necessitates genuine remorse from the individual who has, in any manner, betrayed the relationship. Apart from trust, commitment and forgiveness play pivotal roles in forming genuine connections. I would say they are fundamental pillars in every relationship, and their restoration is a prolonged process. The exertion required must be mutual, with both partners maintaining their boundaries and fostering open communication when discussing issues. The reconstruction of trust is a gradual outcome of sustained and consistent efforts.”
