I could barely get through this. Boy did that woman make the right choice. This poor man/child should get another therapist - he has MAJOR issues. Desperation is such a red flag. I feel for him, I really do. I can’t begin to imagine being so emotionally immature. He will continue to fail at his romantic relationships until he has a solid one with himself. I’m actually surprised he even has friends. What a sad story.
I, too, was barely able to get through this. I was cringing the entire time. I hope with time, one day, he will pull himself out of the desperation/scarcity mindset.
Humans are capable of such profound desperation and lunacy. This author is/was semi-relatable and semi-utterly-insane.
