I remember being in support group last semester and we had a discussion about how difficult it is to get into new relationships since we’ve all had our trust violated in a way most people haven’t.
Another girl and I were about to enter new relationships and we weren’t sure we could do it.
We were asked: What’s the worst thing that could possibly happen? If that thing were to happen, would you survive? Do you want this person in your life, moving forward?
We each felt pretty stupid at that moment because of course we thought we would survive and we wanted these people in our lives. So we were told to jump. And I did. But I fell too hard and now I’m not positive that I’ll survive.
