New relationships are magical and exciting. They give you butterflies and can make you feel like you’re the only two people in the world. But new relationships can also drag up some parts of old relationships…
It’s something I have been very open and honest about with my new partner and he has listened and has been very understanding. We talk about it and we are good at communicating. Something I haven’t had experience of really before from a partner.
Whether we like it or not, our past has an influence on our present and we have to work on it not affecting our best moments and our happiness. Easier said than done I know. It’s hard. It can be tricky to let down all of those walls and it can be hard to let someone new in.
For those of you who have been left heartbroken, scarred and hurt just remember that what happened to make you feel that way can only affect what you choose for it to. You will be OK.
