I'm in a fairly new relationship. Even though we are committed, we are struggling to communicate effectively sometimes. With our pasts, it is very hard to see past the fears. I'm moving forward trusting in God but my partner is fearful of me. I'm trying to build that trust with her but its hard. We both agreed to reach out to Blazing Grace to have a session or two of counseling will be helpful for us to understand and navigate reality versus fears. I'm a type of person that's all in and that scares her a bit. I'm trying to understand but I suck at understanding relationship items and can get frustrated with myself. I'm praying to God to continue to give me patience, compassion and strength to get through this and hopefully he heals and gives us trust in one another to give the other person the benefit of the doubt, grace and mercy. Since my recovery and restoration from porn addiction and other bad sexual issues, this is all new territory for me and I'm learning as I go. I don't want drama and just want a peaceful and restful life since my past has been full of drama and bad decisions. We both have had this life in the past and trusting in God's direction in our relationship to be different and walk in his footsteps with him leading is scary at times. I get why women with an abusive past have trust issues. And in turn, I get why Men have trust issues as well because of past hurts and pains. These are items we must leave at the door and walk forward in God. Sometimes its easier said than done but I have hope we will get there. I just need my partner to walk with me in this mantra. Please pray for us.
