    Thats an interesting post! It reminds us of the proverb ‘Better late than never’. To hear and be heard is the essence of relationships, particularly among couples. As an act of self-preservation, a lot of people like the man given in the example struggle and unconciously sabotage their own chances of being loved.

    Actually the saying it reminds me of is “Too little, too late,” and how our refusal to grow beyond the needs of ego tends, ultimately, to be self-destructive.
