Trust and Trauma
As I sit here, I find myself torn to pieces. I am nearly thirty years old and as I've stated in a previous article, working on my complex trauma. Years of abuse has put me in a strange place. I have been with my partner for going on five years now, and I don't know how to trust her.

Growing up, it was hard. Life was hard. Being a tad overweight, confused about who I was, and what I wanted out of life. It was hard. I was angry, I was hurting, and confused. I was finding myself constantly in a state of stress, and at the time, I internalized all of it. I struggled with self-esteem, bullying, hating the place where I grew up, blaming everything and everyone for the way I handled the world around me. There was no understanding on my part, it was all black and white. Either I loved someone, a friend or family member, or I hated them to the core of my being. It was extremes, in my emotions, my opinions, my interpersonal relationships. And in those extremes, I made a lot of mistakes.
