Inside this Book – Ugly, dumb and fat. Marisa’s brother hung those labels on her when she was just six years old. By the time Marisa was 12, she was living up to (or down to) each of them. She was almost 30 pounds overweight and struggling to maintain a C average in school. Marisa felt out of place everywhere she went. It was impossible to make friends. No one, it seemed, made any effort to relate to her. She drew back from others in the gloomy certainty that no one would be interested in her anyway. Marisa suffered in silence, longing for someone to provide her with the love and affection she craved. But no such person appeared. More and more, she turned to food in search of comfort. As Marisa’s brother continued to torment her with his cruel indictments, she fell farther behind in school and grew more obese year by year. Marisa’s brother had not developed his critical nature on his own but had simply learned from the example of their father—a merchant marine who was often away for three to six months at a stretch. Whenever he was at home, he ranted, condemned, judged and put others down constantly, until his next journey took him away. The moment he left, Marisa’s brother took over the role of emotional tormenter. She had no respite. While she was in the sixth grade, Marisa later recalled, she began taking refuge in a fantasy world all her own. It seemed harmless enough at first. But before long it became her “drug of choice.” The more her brother and father made reality miserable, the more solace she found in her make-believe world. Her fantasies became a kind of salve, a way to soothe the pain of living in a family that could not, or would not, give her the acceptance and affirmation she needed.
Inside this book –When You Love Too Much PDF Book by Stephen Arterburn – Roxanne hated sex. She had read over and over that women wanted and needed sex just as much as men did, but she didn’t believe it. The very thought of sexual intercourse repulsed her. She never pursued men with the desire to be sexual with them. That was the last thing she wanted. And yet, Roxanne did pursue men, and she did have sex with them. That she would put herself through an experience she found so distasteful was a measure of her desperation, of her willingness to do whatever she had to do to fill the aching void in her soul. That void, she had decided, was caused by the emotional neglect of a father too aloof to be concerned with his daughter’s needs for affection.
