“As children, we come up with stories to make sense of our world. We have limited ability to understand the complex happenings of our lives. For me, it was way less painful to think that I was the wrong gender and that’s why my father wasn’t interested in me or my sisters than to believe the truth: That he just wasn’t interested.” – Terri Cole


Growing up, my mother, my sisters, and I were all afraid of him.

I didn’t think either of these things was a “big deal” until I connected the dots in therapy and realized how much I was playing out my father wound in my romantic relationships.
