Do we need a loyal, trusting, intimate relationship to be happy

Boy, 90% of the world would be unhappy if we needed a loyal, intimate relationship.

I see many, many older ladies alone with a small dog as a companion.

Are they happy or unhappy?

Do they desire a trusting lover?

Do we settle for a pet?

So Do we feel like a failure if we are alone without a small dog.

What expectations are appropriate? Healthy?

If your a woman unmarried at 35 your looked at indifferently, a spinster.

Hell, if you do not have kids you are looked on differently.

What a minefield.

  1. I think the answer to your question is yes, but in relationship to yourself! Someone else offering that to you, if it comes, is a bonus

  2. Thanks

    A bonus until betrayal

    How do you know a person will be loyal

  3. You don’t but if you cherish yourself enough you know you’ll get you through no matter what 💚

  4. Very confident

    I did not make it through my betrayal in college

    It caused me to never trust again

    For those with C-PTSD, Life, in general, is a minefield. Even on good days or when I think I’ve settled into a different flow (eventually, the bubble always bursts) so many triggers to navigate or avoid. I imagine it more like walking the path over hot coals.

  6. Good analogy
