Excellent point of view!!!

Sometimes, when a person has had a succession of bad relationships, or even just one abusive relationship, they can feel exactly the same as the war veteran in this article; when this person, by some lucky chance has a good relationship, they feel awkward that the abuse has not started. They just wait for the abuse to begin and, paradoxically can even instigate some bad feelings to steer themselves away from this unhappy happiness. This is felt as the norm for this person and it is a relief to have feelings that are familiar; in this case, even happiness is a frightening place to be.
