I'm newish to polyamory and fresh off a particularly heartbreaking and unhealthy relationship. My husband's been incredibly supportive, but he's definitely doing more than his fair share by carrying me through this emotionally.
I'm finding myself increasingly skeptical of the poly lifestyle now--it was intense, uncontrolled jealousy, manipulation, and consistent "postponing" of communication that ended this relationship. Right now, it feels like the level of honesty required for healthy poly relationships is beyond what most people can handle without slipping into rage.
I'm looking to reverse that impression, but I need encouragement.
