The Brain That Changes Itself, Chapter 4, "Acquiring Tastes and Loves" - Norman Doidge

This quote was added by jeremy_le_jyby
Unlearning in love allows us to change our image of ourselves, for the better if we have an adoring partner. But it also helps account for our vulnerability when we fall in love, and explains why so many self-possessed young men and women who fall in love with a manipulative, undermining or devaluing person often lose all sense of self and become plagued with self-doubt from which it may take them years to recover.
