A Private Investigator, cheating husbands, and several valuable lessons learned…

Is it possible to trust again after your trust is betrayed? The answer is yes…and these 3 keys will help…

A question I’m often asked is, “If I’ve been betrayed, how can I ever trust anyone again?”

Going through more than one divorce, and being cheated on by two husbands, I know what it feels like…

I know the painful feeling of betrayed trust.

If you feel as though you’re having a hard time trusting again, start with this…

1. Pay attention to what you feel.


And remember, forgiveness doesn’t automatically equal trust.

2. Trust yourself.

Until you trust yourself, you’ll never be able to fully trust another.

If you haven’t always been trustworthy to yourself, start by FORGIVING YOURSELF today.

Then begin to build the trust that you desire by practicing #1.

Trust is not only horizontal, it’s vertical.

It can be both created and destroyed.

Truth builds up. The opposite of truth tears down.

3. You’re not the problem for acknowledging the problem.

Do not be afraid to acknowledge how you feel, and speak up about it.

Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.)


Write yourself a Letter Of Trust.

Begin to build upon this trust with Love And Respect.

If forgiving yourself is necessary, include this in your letter as well.
