Oh, trust issues. When you’ve been dating around for as long as we have, you learn a thing or two when it comes to trust. Or better yet, you develop trust issues. At one point or another, we’ve all been there – fully open and in love, thinking this will last forever. And then out of nowhere, he breaks your heart with no explanation or reason. Ah, memories.
So naturally, you develop a thicker skin and begin to trust men’s lies less and less with each relationship. On the one hand, having a wall up is great. It allows you to protect yourself and be cautious of the people you let into your life. But on the other, it can be incredibly isolating and difficult to further progress with romantic connections. At the end of the day, it’s all about learning to find a proper balance, one that will make us feel safe and comfortable.
