Thank you for allowing me to conduct this reading for you.
Your question that you wanted me to answer was: you have met someone, that you care for very much and he says he feels the same, but you feel that he is hiding something. You say that you may be over-sensitive, as your ex cheated on you many times and treated you badly. Your current partner has also been cheated on by his ex, and she has left him with nothing (financially). He sometimes tells you he wants to commit, then the following day that he would never commit to another woman again. As you have so much in common and have never felt such positive feelings about anyone like this before, you want to know if there is a future?
For this, I did a 3 card reading as set out below:
What you can do to alleviate your trust issues: 8 of Wands
What you can do to convince your partner you are trustworthy: 5 of Swords
What you should both concentrate on to make the relationship work: 8 of Swords
The 8 of wands tells you that it is time to get your priorities sorted out. Dwelling on what was is neither fair nor helpful to the situation. What’s done is done and in the past, you should not carry this feeling with you as not everyone will treat you the same as your ex did.
The 5 of Swords says that you should pick your battles, or in this case, pick the things to do that will earn your trust. Don’t get involved in arguments about your trustworthiness, just allow time to show that you can be trusted, encourage him to put his previous experiences behind him.
The 8 of Swordss suggests that you need to let go of your emotions and use logic. The solutions are available to you but you are not seeing them, instead, you are concentrating on the trappings that you have experienced in past relationships and are carrying them forward to the present one. It is important to consider who or what will help you and to focus on that.
It seems fairly obvious that this is a difficult time for you both; the trust issues may heal, but I don’t think that they should be left to fester. Talk to each other, but don’t force the issue, otherwise the outcome may not be pleasant. There is a future here, but it will take both of you to work at it. Above all, be kind to yourselves and each other. There is a solution, as the 8 of Swords suggests, but help may have to be sought outside of the relationship, so consider professional guidance if you seem to be going nowhere.
I hope this helps!
