I'm in a new relationship. I love it. I thought we could talk about anything. But I'm finding my words have hurt them. I want to stay real. I want both of us to be able to be open and honest, holding nothing back from each other. I want them to know I would never intentionally hurt them. I want them to know if I do, please tell me, so we can come to a mutual understanding. What do you do when you find yourself in this situation?
Sometimes the eggshells are your own insecurities. I think you are a bit too over worried about cause harm and hurt. But are your worries justified? What did you do that caused hurt already? What could you do to prevent that hurt? I think these types of questions you need to ask yourself.
Letting them know they can talk to you and trust you is learned though experience and time. I'm a little concerned why you are so serious about this new relationship/ friendship. Why are you so invested in everything going right? Are you being too critical of yourself? Are perfectionist tendencies causing you this distress?
