Great post. I’ve had 3 major traumatic relationships leaving me with 3 kids with absent dads. They are traumatised too.
I’d like to end this with I’ve found a good, caring supportive guy but 10 years single. I haven’t. Maybe because despite lots of psychotherapy I still have trust issues and it must be obvious to any man I meet. I don’t just have a wall up, there’s an electric fence and a force field for emotional protection!
I’m working on this, there are good guys out there, I know this because my daughter has been married to one for 7 years. I’ll start by taking down the force field and work on the fence and wall ….. maybe …..
