My boyfriend and I are in the early stages of our relationships. So far things are going great. We both have healthy communication, see each other at least 3 times a week, and very happy together. We both got into our relationship well after taking time from our previous relationships but we both had traumatic experiences. My boyfriend was in an emotionally abusive relationship like me and also recently before I met him and we got together I had reconnected with a guy from elementary school and was taken advantage of and basically emotionally manipulated. I felt stupid because I slept with this guy and got high with him after he was kind of a bully to me in school, vice versus my boyfriend has this ex who still tries to contact him. Should we get counseling for our issues? Should we try healthy exercises? Or any suggestions?
