    Yep 100% that’s why I have never been in a real relationship with anyone.

    I've been improving. But still sometimes hard.

    What steps have you been taking to improve?

    Learning to listen to my intuition has been the biggest thing.

    oh 100%. i still have my moments of flinching at the touch of my husband, or even thinking my best friend of 8+ years is going to turn on me one day. i think what helped me is to remember that trust is blind, but intuition’s eyes are wide open.

    Yeah, even if I've told my bf he's the first person I've really relax like I would, part of me still feels unsafe to trust and push him away.

    Yeah. Even when you know they're good sometimes you still wonder what might make them leave.

    I think letting the right ones know when you're feeling insecure helps too.

    Yes omg, it’s terrible, if they do one thing I just get weary of trusting them in the future it is difficlt

    Yes, I sometimes feel isolated even while being comforted.

    Ugh yes!! my dad also has drilled in my head since I was a kid to “trust no one” so that also doesn’t help :/

  • Pearl09

    341d

    Yeah that definitely wouldn't help.

    Yes I find it hard to even respond to texts and emails and that shouldn’t be a daunting task but I find it to be quite often 😥
