I switch between being entirely infatuated with someone and convincing myself that I don't need other people to be happy. The end result is me feeling broken, sad, and alone. Humans need healthy and strong relationships in their lives to enjoy life to the fullest, but I always get that desire to shove and push away to protect my own ego and it hurts. How do I allow myself to be vulnerable?

    Me too. I’ve been trying to catch myself overthinking and counter act it. So when I start worrying if my partner is really “the one” or whatever, I give myself a week. Usually the feelings were in the spur of the moment. Idk if this helps lol

    No, I appreciate it! I for sure could benefit from catching myself when my thoughts run free.

    Oh my gosh this was put so perfectly! I’ve never heard of any one else experiencing something like that too!! It’s so frustrating and debilitating. Usually, I do the same thing. I give myself a break, be honest with my partner about what I’m thinking/feeling and have genuine conversations with myself, my partner, and impartial third parties (optional). Being honest with yourself and your partner is the best thing to do for you both. That way, you don’t need to shame and belittle yourself for feeling the way that you do, and your partner shouldn’t feel so left out or empty. I hope this makes sense and I hope it helps :)
