My partner and I have been dating for nearly a year now, he had only been single for six months after getting out of a seven year relationship. From what he has told me it didn’t end very well and bad things were said from both parties. As the New Year has passed he has texted his ex to apologise for what was said during the break up, I respect the kind hearted side of him that felt like he needed to apologise but at the same time it just made me feel like it was opening the door to possibilities of them trying to fix things.
Ever since we have got together I have always felt second best to her, they have a long past and his family talks about her a lot, I have expressed my concerns to him but he says I have nothing to worry about but I just can’t shake the feeling that I will be pushed aside or just always be second best. Am I being irrational?
Any advice is appreciated, just need some guidance, thank you.
