Traumatized

What’s wrong with me with me that I only want a traumatized partner?

Like if you haven’t been to prison or in active military combat, then I don’t think we can truly connect. I’m drawn to these people without even realizing it.

Why? I don’t fucking know.

My childhood is one that I’m still healing from. I’ve made poor decisions in love. I’m still dealing with the effects of drug addiction and I don’t even use. (thanks Mom) Mental illness runs deep & wild in the family.

I have ADHD, PTSD, general anxiety, depression and loads of codependency tendencies.

But I’m trying so hard to heal.

Why don’t my choices in partners reflect that? 🥺

Being born and raised in the south should have made me more inbred and less tolerant, but something went wrong in the grand scheme of these damned rebels. I am; brutally honest, a bad driver with a record to prove it, a connoisseur of stand-up comedy, the eldest child, an aware procrastinator, semi-sweet, the result of my mother losing her virginity, easily excitable, a lover of music, a pretty shit liar, late to any event no matter what, myself without apology.
