Need to Feel Needed
I had a mother who became busy with my brother's children when I turned 14. His wife had a serious disease. I became jealous of the attention they were getting. At that point I got more than my share of criticism. I felt abandoned.
In my adult life, I realized that I always feared to be abandoned again, to the point that I can not fall in love with someone that I can not control. I need help because I am about to give up on the one that I really love for fear that he will leave me.
