Our expert says:
IS it that you believe you are impossible for anyone to love ? OR that you find it hard to believe someone like him, when they say they love you ? The first suggests a mistrust of yourself, the second a mistrust of others.
Past experiences do indeed often influence either of these scenarios. Just because someone, even several ones, made fun of you or let you down, etc., before doesn't mean this guy will - too often in life we first of all ignore or under-estimate such risks, then over-estimate them.
CBT would be the recommended method - I must, therefore, doubt whether you actually "completed" that CBT previously, or you should have been able to avoid this situation, or at least to have dealt with it promptly and effectively. First revisit your notes, and if that isn't enough, revisit the therapist - or an even more skilled and experienced one.
