I should start this letter out by saying that I love you so much, and that I trust you with my whole life. I'm sorry that my petty jealousies and insecurities are causing such a strain on our relationship. I know when I get anxious or paranoid it makes you feel like I don't trust you or our relationship. I understand how that makes you frustrated and angry, since you've never given me a single reason to doubt you. You're a wonderful and loving partner.
The problem lies with me and the way that I view myself. I have had a lot of bad past experiences, negativity, and self-doubt. When I'm jealous, I'm not really afraid that you're going to leave me or cheat on me-I'm afraid that that's what I deserve somehow. I'm afraid that because I've been hurt before that it's only natural I'll be hurt again.
It's incredibly unfair of me to put these old wounds onto you. I am working hard to trust again and to change the way I see normal, everyday interactions. This is the best relationship I've ever had, and I don't want to ruin it. Please be patient with me.
