Without more information about your relationships and interaction style, it’s difficult to answer your question. With the assistance of a therapist, you can analyze how you are behaving with others. An analysis of this type will determine how your behavior may be contributing to problematic relationships. That’s the best way to answer your questions about your difficulty in relationships.
Generally speaking, if you are continually having the same problems in relationships, then you may be doing something wrong. Once you are aware of these issues, you can change them. That’s the first step in correcting behavior. We can’t change our behavior if we are unaware of it. Therapy will help you objectively analyze how you behave with others.
If your therapist isn’t helpful, find another one. You should also consider group therapy. The group can provide valuable feedback about your interaction style. It can also model new ways of interacting with others.
Medication can alter your personality. Check with your psychiatrist to determine if it’s affecting your interactions with others. I hope this helps. Please take care.
