Yes, We should communicate our past pain with our new partners. Why? 1) They should have a clear understanding of who we are and our past will highlight that. 2) We want to explain what we will not tolerate. 3) We want to assure we have learned from that pain. But, we should never use our pain to control a future relationship. The trauma is a source of reference not crutch. Our future partnerships are signs that we have healed and are ready for something greater in our lives. We chose better, we overcame unimaginable odds, and we forgive those people and are moving forward. Trauma didn’t break us, it made us understand that we can shine in the worst situations.
