As Dr. Phil said on The Oprah Winfrey Show, "Anytime someone's been violated, it's always, 'How can I learn to trust again?'" For the relationship guru, there are two steps to giving someone a second chance.

"Number one is realizing that trust comes from knowing you can handle what they do, not in being able to predict what they're going to do," Dr. Phil said. "The amount we trust depends on how strong we are and knowing we can handle our partner's imperfections. And when you know that, you don't have to play with sweaty palms."

Watch to learn the second part of Dr. Phil's trust equation.
