I felt confused, scared of commitment and afraid of my uncertain future. I didn’t believe in myself and I thought I needed to have control over everything in my life.
After many relationships’ disappointments, I had strong preconceptions about being unlovable. I didn’t believe that I could ever find ‘a right guy’. I also thought that I am not ‘a right girl’ and once someone gets to know the real me they will leave me. Deep down, I felt like I was broken, not good enough, and something was wrong with me.
I couldn’t find love.
At that point, I had a good job, and had just finished my nursing degree, life seemed ok, yet I was looking for something more – especially in the domain of relationships and love.
I started dating a guy a couple of months before I started working with Dorothy. I was really scared to get close to him and was worried about what the future would bring. I had high hopes that Dorothy would help me with my bad luck in relationships. I just wanted to be happy, be with someone who loves me for who I am. I wanted to have a happy and lasting relationship.
