Effects of Abuse: Mistrust


You may find that you're always questioning others' motives. Maybe it's when your partner touches you, or when they tell you they care.

You may find that you are angry at your abuser; or you may find that anger directed towards the person or persons who missed the mark on protecting you.


Mistrust isn't always a result of abuse, but it is still extremely impacting to relationships you may desperately want to build. If this sounds like you...resonates with you... I'd invite you to consider if a therapeutic relationship would be helpful to forming a new version of yourself. To triumphing over your scars and choosing what future and what types of relationships you want to have.


"It will always be this way" is a lie. It does not have to be. You can choose different. You can.
