Hey there, diary. Today I want to talk about something that's been weighing on my mind a lot lately - trust issues and building healthy relationships. It's something that has always been a struggle for me, but I'm trying to work through it.

I've always found it hard to trust people. Maybe it stems from past experiences or maybe it's just part of who I am. Either way, trusting others is a huge challenge for me. The fear of being hurt or let down can be overwhelming at times, and it makes forming meaningful connections with others difficult.

But despite all the anxiety and insecurity that comes with trusting someone, deep down inside I know that having strong relationships is important for my well-being. It's not easy letting go of those walls I've built up around myself, but little by little, brick by brick, I'm learning to tear them down.

One thing that helps me navigate these tricky waters is communication. Being open and honest about my feelings and fears allows me to build bridges with others instead of shutting them out completely. Talking things out may seem scary at first - what if they judge me? What if they leave? - but in the end, honesty paves the way for understanding and connection.

Another key aspect in building healthy relationships is setting boundaries. This one has always been tough for me because saying no feels like rejection or causing conflict - two things I try desperately to avoid at all costs! But as much as it scares me, standing up for myself shows others how much respect I have for myself; hopefully leading them treat me better too!

And then there's self-care: taking care of yourself physically AND emotionally so you're ready & able give your best self when needed most! For example getting enough sleep (which can be REALLY challenging when anxiety keeps you awake) eating right (even though sometimes comfort food seems like only option) exercising regularly (because endorphins are good!) These are just few ways show love towards oneself which ultimately attracts more love into life

Overall navigating trust issues isn't an easy feat especially while dealing insecurities anxieties clinginess submissive nature...but small steps towards vulnerability openness respect boundaries self-care lead healthier happier fulfilling connections worth overcoming fears uncertainties along journey
