To the girls out there, do you tell your boyfriend everything? Your weird little quirks, your embarrassing moments, your mood swings? I write these journal entries when I'm feeling bad or slightly depressed, and my ex was really interested in them. He badgered me about reading them, and after I let him see a couple he changed in his actions towards me. It made him think of me differently, so I was too scared to show him any more. It's not that I didn't trust him, it's that I didn't want him to think of me as some chronically depressed person, because I was really happy when I was with him.
Thing is, it might have been a factor in our breakup; he said I didn't trust him enough.
So I'm wondering if I was right in keeping them to myself, or should I have been more open?

Communication is super important in any friendship or relationship, and ultimately communication breeds trust. He may have felt that because you didn't want to tell him certain things, you didn't fully trust him. However, you were just worried about how he would react to those things you didn't want to say to him. In a way, he was right; you didn't trust that he would accept you. It's a tough lesson to learn, especially in your case because you didn't want him to think negatively of you. Again, communication's important. Make your feelings understood, and usually things will go a lot smoother.0
