I am afraid.
How can I take a step and overcome the fear of true love while stuck in my past?
Fear of love comes from being permissive & idealistic, so that you “dont’ see” bad behavior in a mate.
And if you lack confidence, you may have unrealistic ideas about “never finding love again” or “being destroyed” by a breakup.
The solution is: stop falling in love by your heart alone. Use your head also & be analytical.
Make a list of what you need in a relationship & don’t settle!
Saying “no” builds confidence & lessens fear.
