“An inability to meet the real demands of love is one of the essential characteristics of neurosis”

“An inability to meet the real demands of love is one of the essential characteristics of neurosis; the patients are dominated by the opposition of reality and fantasy. They will flee from what they long for most intensely in their fantasies if they encounter it in real life, and they are most likely to abandon themselves to fantasies when they no longer need to fear their realization.”

― Sigmund Freud, A Case of Hysteria: Dora
