I’ve done almost all of these things at some point or another, many of them in my early relationships. Need to make up for missing parental love is huge, but society doesn’t help either.

I’ve decided a long time ago that I’d someday share the truth of my experiences with my future children, even the things that feel embarrassing. I think it would have helped me to hear about these types of things in an honest way from someone I trusted and who had been there.
