If someone tells me about their relationship, in such a way that they feel they are going to die if they don’t get the person, I KNOW it is a Nessus/Dejaneria relationship. Why is the Nessu/Dejaneria relationship so powerful? I think it brings up childhood abuse. When you are abused, you equate abuse with love .You don’t want to It makes no sense, but you do. Abuse and love are intertwined. When you feel the Nessus in another person, it feels like your abuser. You may not like it or want it, but you are compelled to repeat it. The Nessus/Dejaneria relationship is the stuff of Wuthering Heights, Gone with the Wind and Romeo and Juliet. It is the stuff of which romance novels are made. It sweeps you up and away. You can’t help it. It has the power of eons of love stories and hearts which wanted to touch their true love. Nessus/Dejaneria is inexorable. What happens at the end? I don’t know. I don’t know the end.. I know that the passions are those of which murders and lusts and rapes and kingdoms rising and falling, are made. Nessus and Dejaneria cannot be taken lightly. Do so at your own peril. You see what happened to Romeo and Juliet. This is Nessus. This is Dejaneria. Use wisdom.
