Just a little bit about me here.. I’m trying to heal from my trauma and be a better girlfriend because my boyfriend deserves it and I want to be better than I am. We have a 4 month old together and live on our own. We’ve been having a lot of issues lately because I don’t show any emotions. I’m not a lovey dovey type of person.
I grew up with a controlling dad and a drug addicted mom who was barely around and in jail sometimes. My dad never showed any love whatsoever so I don’t know how to. I can’t express my emotions unless it’s anger because that’s all I’ve been shown. I was very sheltered growing up. I want to be able to show my boyfriend how I feel about him.
I’m a very shy person and it bothers me so much because we’ve been together for almost 7 years. I don’t know how to not be shy with him. I want to get better i just don’t know how to. I know I have a lot of childhood problems to heal from and I’m willing to. He’s willing to help me try to get better since I never gave up on him when he was going through the darkest part of his life.
If anybody has any tips they would be greatly appreciated.
