We both have insecurities and trust issues due to past relationships... So, there's the back and forth accusations, yelling, name calling, etc. We are both extremely jealous and have no communication skills. We love each other but sometimes Love isn't enough to make someone understand that you aren't going to hurt them. How can we help each other overcome these issues?

Knowing the difference between facts and one's own feelings may be difficult. However, there are times when we make feelings a fact instead of an opinion. You may have a point of view of a situation resulting in what you believe to be a fact, or a version of your own imagined fact. Thoughts are extremely important to each individual. However, to keep things fundamentally true, you have to differentiate between facts and feeling. Let's focus on sincere principles.
Sometimes a source of information may be successful in delivering great benefits. The information could be accurate, inaccurate, determined, altered, exaggerated and frantic. For example, you may consider a feeling so strong that you see it as reality. But there are times when you may believe something as factual yet, not supported by actual fact. In reality, feelings may not always have a relation to one's own realistic measures. Determining the difference between feelings and opinions may be difficult if you're consumed with emotions.
Consuming yourself with only emotions may distort fact. It's perfectly normal to have feelings and abnormal to ignore one's own feelings. However, excessive dwelling may distort facts.
Ignoring feelings of pain will only make it difficult to accept sensitivity and joyful bliss. It may appear easier at the time, but you will feel it later. Your objective is to communicate your feelings and make reasonable decisions that effectively guide you for growth.
Some people are so involved in their feelings that they're blinded to facts. Reasoning or communicating with someone who believes his or her feelings to be fact, even if evidence portrays differently, may determine just a feeling not a fact.
Simply, being aware of your feelings will bring clarity to help differentiate, fact and opinion. Always be sensitive to other people's feelings, so you may receive the same in return. Furthermore, remember that thoughts are feelings and they are a behavior from your thoughts and they do not change facts.
