I am in a new relationship with a man who I knew before we split m. I find that explaining how the effects of avuse impact me helps him to understand me. I also show him articles on trauma bonding etc so that he gets it. Take things at your own pace, be as honest as you are comfortable with and if he’s worth it he will understand.

I’ve just asked him what he would advise from his perspective and he’s reiterated what I’ve said about being honest and explaining feelings etc. He said that it’s not always nice to hear but helps him to understand x
