          ‘There Are Wounds In You That Are Gaping Wounds That Are Open,’ Dr. Phil Tells Woman Who Says She Can’t Move On From Her Past


          November 27, 2018

          Angela admits that she has been unfaithful with nearly 20 different men during her marriage to her husband, Dan. She claims the infidelity started after she got upset with Dan, and it continued for a variety of reasons, including his nonstop questioning after he found out about the affair.

          Angela says she believes her childhood may have had an immense impact on her behavior.

          “I dealt with mental, emotional and verbal abuse regularly,” Angela claims about her childhood. “From the time I was about 6 years old, I did sexual things with another family member for years, and a family member took provocative photos of me. I remember seeing pornography, and I was enticed by it.”

          The mom of four young daughters says she lost her virginity at 13 and had sex with boys in her neighborhood. “I just wanted to feel something. I needed some sort of void filled,” Angela says. “I feel like I’m just not good enough for anything. I tell Dan over and over again that I’m just not good enough for him, and I’m not good enough for the kids.”

          In the video above, Dr. Phil explains to Angela how her childhood experiences have left her with deep wounds. And, he has a message for Dan.
