    My girlfriend was previously in a very mentally abusive relationship and she feels like she has to live in fear still even though shes no longer around the guy. it got so bad some army recruiter came by our house the other day and she got scared and hid in the bathroom for an hour (i was not home she was alone) my question is more or less how can i go about making her feel more at ease. I'm not at all overbearing and We are both very open but she was abused for so long i feel like its her instinct to be scared. I want to comfort her but i don't want to be takin advantage of by not standing up for myself if i dont feel comfortable about something

    The only thing you can realistically do here is try to get her into some counseling. She has to work through her own issues first before she can work through the issues of a relationship with another person.
