Many writers have described the 'narcissistic adult' as NOT one who has been 'spoilt' by too much attention, but someone whose life has been spoilt because those who cared for him in infancy or childhood were unable to see or know who he was, and respond to that. Instead they saw a reflection of their own needs, or someone who intruded upon their needs.
Richard Sennet writes:
"The manifest content of such a distress is "I cannot feel"; the latent content, however, is that the Other, the other person or the outside wold, is failing to arouse me. The statement of inadequacy is double-edged. I am inadequate; those who care about me, by their very caring become inadequate for my needs and are not really the "right ones'...
The person caught in this bind feels that those trying to get close to him are violating him, giving him no room to breathe. and so he flees... on to the next person who is idealized as perfect until he or she begins to care."
Hmm... sound familiar to any of you Cancers? ... past or present?
I've often wondered about the self-absorbed Cancer, who delights in draining and using the people around them. The materialistic ones, always searching for the next gadget or 'item' that will make them the envy of all their friends.

What do you make of a chart that is entirely missing an element? I don't have any Earth signs in my chart at all. Just Fire, Water and Air. I would think it would make me less grounded but I don't think I'm all that impractical. Anyone else missing an ele

Is there a -philia word for being sexually aroused by foreign languages/accents/voice tones? I couldn't find it. I was listening to Balkan music and somehow found a Slavic mix of "Let it Go". Though I dislike the movie, the effect is like I am all set
It seems like every out of control, "crazy" celebrity has a backround story. It's so sad. No one is born troubled, they become that way through experiences in life.
