When You Want Love But Push Love Away
Kris Gage

I was anxious and then in a controlling relationship which made me aware of power dynamics in relationships (because obviously that one had a very uneven power split — he had all the power but claimed powerlessness). I think this has led me to be avoidant with a hint of anxious. I’m finally getting towards secure and I know this because I am less worried my friends will leave or hurt me and have no interest in a romantic relationship unless we can both meet each others’ needs. I think (hope) this is progress.
