Quote from Susanna Sonnenburg's book "She Matters". " I longed for intimacy, for the reassurance I like you, you like me-but I always grabbed for it too soon, thinking that a lot meant intimacy and a lot never seemed like enough anyway. That made the girls quickly awful, at once too significant, and it probably made me awful to them, my alarming, unexplained hungers. We ignited large and flamed out."
I know this, but at 45 I'm still trying to learn it.
