I'm with a Scorpio man who's been horribly betrayed in the past.
I'm taking it slow, and would never hurt him like his ex did. We're very good together, but he's still having a very hard time letting go of the past. He's extremely skittish about relationships in general.
Is there any way I can help him with this?
I understand you want to save him, but this is entirely his process. I mean, think about it. All you can really do is be a trustworthy person. You can show up and how he handles it is entirely out of your hands. I’ll tell you my own experience though.
First, all Scorpios have been betrayed. And a good number of them trust no one because of it. But other Scorpios will trust their gut. They open up to a select “inner circle” - a very small group of folks who they feel reasonably certain will not betray them.
Now as to which category your man falls in, I have no idea. But just from reading your post, I’d suggest you give him some space. I wouldn’t advise you tell him to “let go”, for example. Scorpios will let go if and when they damn well please!
His process is a deep and private one. There’s no way he’s going to let you in there to move his wires around. Make sense? If you want to love a Scorpio, their pain is part of the package.
