He thought I was an idiot, and I actually was... Mads was 21 years of age (holy moly – yep, he’s actually 7 years younger than me!) and the longest relationship he’d ever been in had lasted 6 months and had ended with her cheating on him.
I was 28 years old and had been single for 2.5 years. And to be honest with you…. I had absolutely NO faith in neither love nor men!
My last relationship had ended in doors being slammed and a very loud “go f… yourself!” after he had cheated on me again…
In addition to that, we were both avoiding any conflicts and our self-worth was most likely to be found under your nearest old worn-out carpet.
With all this ‘hurt’ we were both carrying around, it was hard for us to open up to each other.
We were both TERRIFIED of getting hurt again.
However, this didn’t change the fact that we had to take baby-steps in opening up to our most vulnerable space, our deepest place where it hurts like hell telling someone what you’re missing and what you’d like more of.
It’s the place inside yourself where you can very easily feel what it is that you need but you’re scared to say it out loud as you might end up getting hurt.
Two people who really wanted each other but were actually struggling to show each other that.
I’ll admit that it was easier for Mads than it was for me.
And this is the exact place where Albert Einstein would’ve considered me to be an idiot… “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.” - Albert Einstein
Long story short, we needed change. A huge one but we need to start evaluate where we’re at and we want to go.
That’s what the Yearbook for Couples was born to life. It helped us to transition from being hurt and afraid to open and carefree with each other.
I will let more of the in the coming days but for now, you can check it out. LINK IN BIO.
