so i started a new book
*drags hands down face*
Image is of text which reads:
“Emotional loneliness is so distressing that a child who experiences it will do whatever is necessary to make some kind of connection with the parent. These children may learn to put other people’s needs first as the price of admission to a relationship.
“Instead of expecting others to provide support or show interest in them, they take on the role of helping others, convincing everyone that they have few emotional needs of their own. Unfortunately, this tends to result in more loneliness, since covering up your deepest needs prevents genuine connection with others.”
I googled the text, and all roads lead to Adult Children of Emotionally Immature Parents: How to Heal From Distant, Rejecting, or Self-Involved Parents if you wanted to go head and get this book.
Son of a bitch this is me all over
