"The Secret in healing Narcissism is not to heal it at all, but to listen to it. Narcissism is a signal that the soul is not being loved sufficiently. The greater the Narcissism, the less love being given." ~ Thomas Moore, 'Care of the Soul'.

Re: Possible Promise ( 19:35:33 ThuJan 8 2004 ) |
My possible promise is to become a non-judgmental person in every sense of the world. I love what TC had to say earlier, and would like to adopt that as a probable promise, because it is an understanding that seems to be etched in to my soul. I see people, and I see myself. I seem to be in tune with what other people feel, and to be uncharacteristically insightful into what they are going through. I once had a professional horoscope analysis done, and it said although this was a precious gift I had been born with, if I did not learn to discern who to practice it with, an establish healthy boundaries, I would experience painful relationships over and over again. Sadly, up unitl now this has been true, but I plan to change that.
In support of my possible promise I would like to share a quote that I carry around with me whereever I go:
EMOTIONALLY MATURE, AUTONOMOUS INDIVIDUALS UNDERSTAND THAT OTHER PEOPLE DO NOT EXIST MERELY TO SATISFY THEIR NEEDS. . .SUCH AN INDIVIDUAL DOES NOT EXPERIENCE HIS OR HER SELF-ESTEEM AS CONTINUALLY IN QUESTION OR IN JEOPARDY. THE SOURCE OF APPROVAL RESIDES WITHIN THE SELF.
