At one time or annother, we are all faced with the pain of abandonment. Whether the person(s) who walked out on you was a parent, partner or friend, it hurts. This is a place of friendship and support.
Hi, I am new to the group and have joined the site as I had some good experiences a few years ago. I have BPD and along with this comes abandonment issues. I haven't spoken to my biological father in over 15 years, my grandfather died last year from cancer and I have never been able to keep a man for longer than a few years.
My partner and I have an open relationship, it has always been this way and it suits us both. But, if we go to events I am terrified he will go off and talk to someone else and leave me alone with no one to talk to. I am also terrified that he will leave me permanently for one of his other women. I worship the ground he walks on, but if I don't get my act together I will loose him, he has told me this.
