Ask The Experts: A Matter Of Trust
Dear Keith and Maura,
You say that all of your past relationships have been untruthful, and that you were not respected in any way. So what has changed? Did you do any work on your own self-trust and self-respect before you started dating your current partner? Because if you didn't, then your concerns about the bottom falling out could be very valid. If you always attracted untrustworthy and disrespectful partners, and you haven't done any work on yourself since then, why should this time be any different? If you don't treat yourself with love and respect, how can you expect anyone else to?
Only you know if this is true for you. So check inside and ask yourself:
And as far as "ruining" your "chance for love" -- that is also an inside job. As we've said before, the love you need most is the love that only you can give yourself. How can you love yourself more fully? How can you create a solid foundation in your relationship with yourself, so that nothing anyone else does or says can make the bottom fall out?
Once you truly learn self-trust, self-love and self-respect, you will be ready to attract the one who is truly worthy of your love, trust and respect. This may be the man you are with right now, but until you do the work on your relationship with yourself, you may never be able to make your current relationship all that it could be.
If you've already done this work, then chances are that your skittishness is just leftover from the old you, and in that case your work is even simpler. A few positive affirmations, repeated daily with consistency and conviction, can go a long way. For example:
...or whatever has the most impact for you.
Whatever you do, please don't blame yourself. The fact that you are asking these questions shows that you are willing to do whatever it takes to have a good relationship. Deep down, don't you know that you deserve it?
