Empty and Disconnected

Pornorgraphy made me feel empty and disconnected from others. For much of
my adolescence and adult life, I couldn’t connect to others, especially if they
were women. I couldn’t understand why my relationships never lasted very long,
why other men around me were so much more confident among others, why I
always missed social cues that others seemed to get. Now, years after I first
admitted to myself my addiction to pornography, I am a recovering adult with a
wife and two beautiful children. I’m able to empathize with others, have selfless
interest in other human beings regardless of their physical attractiveness. I
recognize women as being truly equal and valuable in their own right. I have
awoken from a terrible nightmare to see a beautiful day!
