A psychology degree holder dumbstruck by this VERY INSIGHTFUL website!
I, as a psychology degree holding adult, always looked down on "Self-Help" books and sites, but this (despite being filled with jargon I see as Freudian and Psychotherapeutic which I generally disagree with) is the MOST INSIGHTFUL thing about abandonment and adult relationships I have EVER read!!! I have read upwards of 40 books within the discipline of psychology OUTSIDE of my degree to give a measure of the weight of this statement. As a child of abandonment this answered and filled in SO MANY questions I did not even know how to ask my partner, therapist, professors or myself. WOW!!! Thank You. Thank You. Thank You!!! We will, I believe, both thank you in the long-term!
