Why does it feel like I'm in a dream where I have a good boyfriend and a family that actually cares? It seems too good to be true and I'm having a really hard time with it. What helps you accept reality instead of feeling like you are running from it? (A little backstory, I grew up with very abusive parents who caused a lot of trauma. I feel like I'm in a dream and when I wake up, I'll be right back at hell being berated and abused all over again)

    This is something I definitely struggle with at it's honestly led to some issues since it feels like things aren't real or I don't deserve them, the best thing I did to help is separate myself as much as I can from the things/ppl who are the reason I feel so unworthy of such a great life/relationship
