Disability and sexuality is a topic that is often ignored, unfortunately. I'm rectifying that with my dissertation as well as this blog 🙂 Check out the latest blog I crafted as well as Angelus!
It's possible, but it takes work. If you'd like to read more about the intricacies of deciding what's next after infidelity, check out the blog I wrote here as well as the services that Angelus has to offer!
People oftentimes act as though they want closeness and intimacy, but balk when it comes to open and honest communication. They want the thrill and fun of relationships without the vulnerability to being hurt or rejected. Or they want intimacy just on their own terms, when it's convenient/when they want attention.
