o your adult relationships. That the …long because of your sexual orientation are plentiful and carry over into your adult relationships. That the wound caused by extreme absence of intimacy and acceptance is triggered by your attempts at experiencing intimacy later on.
This is so true. My adult life has been a constant struggle to reclaim that lost paternal love. In this quest, I create fantasy worlds, worlds based on the love I imagined that I should have received from my family. Alas, these worlds were mere fantasy in which I acted the role of parents; this exposed me to unbalanced exploitative relationships, in which I was giving all the love. At the same time, I felt that I was undeserving of receiving love.
