2. You're paranoid.
In fact, some people may make the greatest changes in their lives following a period of stress or crisis after a breakup. This could change how reliant they are on themselves and other people, make them form closer bonds with family and friends, or even change life priorities. But you do not need to experience a breakup to begin forming healthier relationships. What traits, behaviors, or experiences with an ex or exes act as triggering cues in new relationships? With time and practice, you should become more aware of these cues the moment they occur and this provides an opportunity to respond differently.
Once you are aware of your transference patterns and recognize triggering cues, make a plan that highlights these signals the IF and link it to a new way of behaving the THEN. Beyond this, viewing yourself as worthy, accepted, and decent is vital for forming and maintaining healthy relationships.

My dear mom was one of the most fearful people I have ever known. She lived most of her 84 years under the overhanging shadow of extreme fear. Until recently, I never really gave much thought to why Mom was so afraid and why she automatically assumed the absolute worst in every situation, but as I follow the trail of fear, it is becoming clearer.
A Step-By-Step Guide To Shedding Your Emotional Baggage And Living Your Best Life
When Mom was 17 and her only sister, Opal, was 15, Opal died. Fast forward to when Mom was 33 and her first husband was killed in a car accident, leaving her a widow with four underage children. A few years later, Mom married Dad, and a year after that, I was born. Life growing up was lived with an underlying sense of dread that the bottom would fall out at any moment and the worst possible outcome was more than likely.
Each time someone was sick, Mom assumed they were going to die. Every time someone was late, Mom feared they had been killed. As absurd as it sounds, this was real life in our home. Fear is a huge component of my emotional baggage but forcing myself to get to the bottom of the reason for that has been enormously helpful in figuring out how to stop this cycle and identify what is real and what is mere imagination and psychological intimidation.
