You may have been feeling as though you've been given a life without an instruction manual. Relationships might be more challenging for you than not, and in comparing yourself to other people, you feel like something is missing, that might explain how you end up with the "same person" over and over - the disrespectful, distant, controlling or dismissive person that the previously-ideal partner became, after a while. This is a pattern that can occur with Complex PTSD, a common situation with many of the clients I speak to, which can be resolved with psychoeducation and trauma therapy.
You may also have other symptoms you think are simply "just how I am" such as dissociation, low mood/depression, anxiety and hypervigilance about your own social behaviors - constantly overthinking and regretting, shaming yourself for not doing or saying "the right thing."
C-PTSD can co-occur with other disorders as well. The good news is, you can change. A trauma-informed therapist is a great first step on that journey.
