There is often a situation of being very much in love with someone who is not in love with them. They try to establish a relationship, fight hard for it and have a tendency to force the other. The fight is even more so a fight because they have difficulty to bind themselves as that would diminish their freedom. In the end the other leaves them, from not being really in love or by feeling oppressed and forced. Then they feel really abused, disappointed and left alone. When they have children they feel it as too much of a burden to raise them alone. They feel they will not be good enough, cannot control their children enough or will be limited in their freedom to live their own life.
