We carry emotional trauma from past relationships. It's often tucked away and hasn't healed or been addressed. When entering into new relationships we desperately want to start over with a clean slate, but past hurt and unconscious wounds can easily sabotage a new connection. We're not robots, emotions and experiences stay with us until we both understand them and process them. Esther Perel provides a new framework for understanding relationships and why people are unfaithful/ hurt each other. The cause can be surprising and liberating.
