Still Working On It...I had a partner who emotionally abused me during several months. After over 2 years of being single and working on myself, I just started a new, healthy relationship. I appreciate what I have and I don't want to ruin things with my baggage, but I am so scared of being abused again that I perceive every difference between me and my partner as a threat. When we fight, I blow things out of proportion in an attempt to protect myself. Afterwards I regret doing this, and think that my abuser still has control over me, because what he did to me influences how I behave around my current partner. In sum, I'm letting my past threat my future - How can I stop this???
