she has her excuse. whats yours?
my brother, who is a physical therapist, told me a story recently:
an ungodly obese woman in a wheelchair whose very life depended on her willingness to move her own body refused to GET UP. despite the efforts of
three strong men, she continued to cry, "I CAN'T.....I CAN'T GET UP."
it is easy to judge in this case, isn't it? even people that have nefarious or evil intentions (Hitler) are at least attempting to accomplish
something. but this woman in the wheelchair has lost the ability to be at cause of anything
in Psychology, we often make reference to Narcissism. what we usually are talking about is Secondary
Narcissism. but what this woman is
experiencing is called Primary Narcissism
. it is the
type of feeling in which you wish to return to the womb. you wish to back away from the Evil Curses of the World, and curl up into a ball and go back
to sucking off of mother's teat.
the point of this thread, and what i wish to hear about, is this: YOU are the fat woman in the wheelchair.
admit it. you want to judge her, but you are just like her.
you know that it exists within you. no matter how much you would prefer to point the finger at her. you know that it is true:
when you go to bed at night, after stuffing yourself with your selfish delights and enduring the tenuous effects of daily life, you secretly wish to
go back to that place (the womb) where you are safe and warm and cared for without any effort to your own being. most times, only those whom we are
closest to are actually witness to this alter-persona.
we are scared and infantile at are core.
do you judge this woman?
she has her excuse. lets hear yours:
