Do Your Trust Issues Stem From Within?
If you don’t have trust in a relationship, then you don’t have anything. You can’t really enjoy your time with your partner if you believe, to any degree, that he could betray you, lie to you, or—the ultimate betrayal—cheat on you. Every time he kisses you, you wonder if he’s doing that with anyone else. Any time he checks a text, your blood boils. A good relationship is supposed to provide you a place in which you feel absolutely protective, cared for, guarded, and safe. Within it, you should be able to believe that every interaction and word spoken is honest. It’s one of the few places in life you should be able to count on that. If you do have trust issues, they exist for one of two reasons: 1) The person you are with isn’t trustworthy in which case, leave him—duh! Or 2) You have deep-seated trust issues that will come out, regardless of whether or not your partner is honest. So, do your trust issues come from within or without?
