    Episode 2 — When I was going to get married almost 12 years ago, I had to break the news to another woman who hoped I would choose her instead. I ended up caught between two women who loved me, but I somehow lost both of them — because I refused to commit to the love I really wanted. This was the incident which led me to serious therapy shortly thereafter.

Deep and personal

Having followed David on FB for a while now, I had an inkling of what to expect although, it is deeper and more in depth than I imagined. David is very open and insightful and although shares his personal experience- anyone who has experienced similar will relate to the emotions that arise. I can’t wait for the next episode.
