    Communicate the boundaries that make you feel comfortable and safe and maybe try having a talk with them about your triggers if you’re aware of them

      he knows about my past but I think getting intimate was the trigger cause he's the only other person I've been with

    your body may just not be ready even if your mind is. and that’s okay. don’t push yourself. take it a little bit at a time maybe or simply waiting until you’re ready. ik you’ll work through this one day 💗
