Dishonesty in any relationship can be painful and even heartbreaking. In most cases, however, dishonesty in your relationship is something you may not have realized was a problem. Once you realize, however, it can feel like there’s nothing that can save the situation. Dishonesty destroys trust between partners and weakens the bonds of a relationship. It also creates tension and resentment, which is why it’s important to handle this type of behavior as soon as possible. Dishonesty in your relationship isn’t something that will go away on its own–instead, you need to take action now so it doesn’t grow into something much worse in the future. Most times, dishonesty begins simply enough with one person trying to get their partner or another person to do something that isn’t right or fair for them. This may involve pretending to care about things they don’t by withholding information or pushing someone they shouldn’t push toward them under the false pretense that they’re only helping them find their own interests and values rather than being used by them. Eventually, though, dishonesty can become an end-game where actions are taken to hide the wrongdoing from the other person until they believe it wasn’t really a problem nor something worth reporting again for fear of betraying trust and causing suspicion if they reveal their suspicions again in the future.
What is dishonesty in a relationship?
Dishonesty is when a person is intentionally withholding information from a partner in order to manipulate them. Dishonesty may occur in many situations in a relationship, but it’s especially damaging when it happens in a couple’s relationship. If your partner withholds information from you, it could mean they’re not being honest with you. Dishonesty in a relationship can cause a great deal of pain and damage. It can damage your own self-esteem and self-confidence, leave you feeling like you can’t trust your partner, and even cause resentment in your relationship so you’re resenting your partner instead of feeling attracted to them as you normally would. Dishonesty in a relationship can be hard to address because it’s often an issue of communication. If your partner is withholding information, though, you can address the issue by talking to them about it so they understand why it’s damaging to you.
How to address dishonesty in your relationship
First, you need to recognize when your partner is dishonest. Dishonest people are often insincere and may not even realize the harm they’re doing. You can help yourself by becoming more observant of your partner’s actions and words. If you notice your partner not being completely honest with you, you can address the issue by having an honest conversation with them. Start the conversation by reminding your partner of your conversation and what you said. Be careful, though, not to make it sound like they gave you information to use as you see fit. This is a way to create a “reciprocal honesty” which is a way to replace dishonest communications with honest ones. When your partner is honest with you, you can help them understand how dishonest communications can cause damage to people. If your partner is dishonest and you want to stop it, you can bring up the issue again and gently remind them of what you said. You can also directly ask them to be honest with you.
