I’ve had relationships that I have tried hard to keep in “stasis”.

Then when it didn’t work out they’d feel badly…about themselves.

No, not the guy who said all of these offensive things or treated a woman disrespectfully.

I was drawn to what psychotherapist, Ken Page terms as “attractions of deprivation” – when we are drawn to people who embody the worst emotional characteristics of our parents.

Basically, the theory explains that we are attracted to people who can wound us the same way we were wounded in our childhood, as our psyche tries to recreate the past void and save us by changing its ending.
