How can I navigate a relationship with a partner who projects past relationship issues onto me?

Answer from our relationship trained AI Couple Coach:


March 27, 2024

Dealing with a partner who projects past relationship issues onto you can be challenging but manageable with patience, empathy, and clear communication. Start by acknowledging your partner's feelings and validating their experiences without taking responsibility for problems that aren't yours. Encourage open dialogue about their fears and insecurities, and offer reassurance and support as they work through them. Set healthy boundaries to protect yourself from undue blame or criticism, and seek professional guidance if needed to address underlying issues and improve communication patterns. Remember that you can't change your partner's past experiences, but you can support them in healing and moving forward in your relationship together.
