Separate yourself from your partner, as in learn to love and value yourself in your own right, know that your worth isn't based on how your partner treats you or if it ever happened that you broke up. But learn to lean on them too, learn to love and enjoy your time with them despite also being truly YOU. I'm also going through a tough time with rebuilding trust within my relationship, it's been difficult. I'm thinking of getting therapy to help make it easier. If your distrust is getting in the way of having a happy and fulfilling love life, and if you've got access to therapy or counselling, it may also be an option for you. I also find mindfulness meditation has helped me think about things in a clearer way, less stressed, paranoid etc! Just try to work with whatever you've got, but always know that trusting someone doesn't open you up to harm IF you always love yourself and know your worth. Like others here have said, if anything happened, infidelity or similar, breaking the trust, it is THEIR loss and THEIR failure, not yours.
