We tend to think that love relationships are the result of what we do and live with those people at that moment. However, although we may not be aware of it, the experiences we have lived previously have a lot to do with the choices we make and the way we act. In the literary work “The Women Who Love Too Much” by Robin Norwood, the author addresses just this and shares important lessons. From the letters of women who share their experiences, the author exposes the importance of healing to process in a better way the traumas that were lived in childhood and prevent women from feeling attracted and deciding to relate to men who instead of offering them love, can make them live in constant suffering. Thus, the experiences of the past not only influence the choice that women can make of a partner for their lives, but it can also lead them to be too tolerant and permissive in toxic relationships and end up often forgiving the faults of their partners.
