Past Negative Experiences Make It Hard To Trust The Present And FutureThink about this. We've probably all had (unless we're extremely lucky) a number of relationships in our time, and if we're keeping our eyes peeled for a prospective partner that generally means we're not currently in a relationship. We're not in one because our last one didn't work out, not to mention all those that preceded it.
When we've had numerous relationships and have failed to find the right one, that can make us doubt we'll ever achieve such a feat. Consequently we avoid getting into them in the first place, or we sabotage them before our partner does it first, just to avoid getting hurt again.
I find myself almost unable to break out of my bad memories. To be hurt time and time again may be common but it isn't easy. If one had the ability to erase bad memories and retain good ones, as well as the lessons learnt along the way, that would help tremendously. It would mean having the courage to get out there and keep searching instead of just giving up to avoid the pain.
Whoever figures out a way to do this will give hope to millions who, for one reason or another, just can't seem to find love.
