Author and Psychologist Elan Golomb draws parallels between childhood and adult relationships in order to find love

A relationship doesn’t begin with love at first sight, but at childhood, where the foundations for every romantic partnership are established. Elan Golomb uses her 44 years of experience as a psychologist to showcase how unhealthy parental treatment can leave unsurmountable damage that will forever undermine romantic relationships in “Unloved Again: Breaking Your Serial Addiction.”

In “Unloved Again: Breaking Your Serial Addiction,” Golomb sheds light on how childhood experiences lead to a form of repetition compulsion, where adults continuously pick unfit romantic partners in an effort to recreate their relationship with a parent incapable of love. She cites narcissistic, rejecting or indifferent parents as the root cause for an unhealthy love life and states many adults unconsciously engage in harmful relationships that mimic their upbringing with an unloving parent in order to win that parent’s love; which cannot be done. With her book, Golomb enlightens readers about the destructive cycle.

“The outcome of most romantic relationship can be determined well before a couple even meets because the source of failed relationships is always the same and can be traced back to your parents,” Golomb said. “Picking the wrong person to love is no accident or bad habit, it is a deep-seated issue that needs to be addressed. Forget compatibility tests and personality profiles, and start examining the trauma caused by unhealthy relationships with your parents as a child.”

“Unloved Again: Breaking Your Serial Addiction,” is not another how-to guide on love. Golomb addresses the core causes of failed relationships and urges readers to uncover their inner child who is seeking an unwilling parent’s affection.
