My biggest insecurity will be trust. I trusted my stbx completely. My insecurity isn't so much because of her EA, I understand that those things happen and lies and deception are part of it. I trusted that she was being honest and open with me about her feelings before that. She never let on that she was unhappy feeling empty or unfulfilled. There's was no constant conflict or anything like that. Just one day she tells me she's unhappy and it was downhill from there.

I worry that in my next relationship, no matter how happy, blissful or in love my next partner seems, I'll always be waiting for the other shoe to drop. My W completely blindsided me.
