Throughout our lives we have all either have been with someone who was emotionally unavailable or have been the person whose emotions were locked away. Being emotionally unavailable is usually caused by being involved in a relationship that ended up badly. We sometimes share old relationship traumas with new partners to ease our discomfort, but as the experts explain, that's not always in our best interest. Can you ever really get over your old baggage before entering a new relationship? Should we expect our soulmates to complete us?
In a new video, YourTango Experts Senior VP Melanie Gorman discusses this topic with relationship and dating experts Jen Duchene, Carin Goldstein, Marla Martenson and Kelly Rudolph. Sometimes it is best to keep all the problems of your past relationship out of your new relationship. Bringing up the trouble your ex caused will eventually lead to problems with you current boyfriend/girlfriend. Try not to bring your ex up in your current relationship, this allows you and the new person to develop your own specific problems to solve and bring you two together.
