“I was attracted to men who were a challenge for me, they were inaccessible, I felt it was a win,” says Jana in the series Your Balance. She got into relationships that didn’t work and ended similarly. She felt she had to try and then deserved love, attention and care. She experienced a painful breakup and realized that she was repeating her behavior and that it did not suit her. After listening to the podcast, she was attracted to the therapist and sought his help.
“I suppressed my needs, I put more into the relationship.” Jana was frustrated with her partner’s failures, looking for a mistake in herself. She told herself that she might not be pretty, interesting or smart enough for her partners, she felt insufficient.
As a teenager, she had severe acne that could not be treated, and the boys insulted her severely. As she went into therapy, she realized that she had to straighten her relationship with herself and love herself. She also had to open up the awkward topic of her relationship with her parents. She wanted to reduce the thoughts that devalued, criticized, and hindered her life.
