A very enlightening video on the emotion at the heart of narcissism : Envy.

I found this an extremely interesting video to watch.  It explained a lot to me, both about myself and about others.  In narcissism there is a swing between polarities of all good/grandiosity and all bad/devaluation which can then often be projected onto others.  It explained the relationship with my older sister and also explained other key relationships.  Most enlightening is how the narcissist will respond to the therapist by trying to devalue them.

"The religious naturalist is provisioned with tales of natural emergence that are, to my mind, far more magical than traditional miracles. Emergence is inherent in everything that is alive, allowing our yearning for supernatural miracles to be subsumed by our joy in the countless miracles that surround us." Ursula Goodenough How to describe oneself? People are a mystery and there is so much more to us than just our particular experiences or occupations. I could write down a list of attributes and they still might not paint a complete picture pf Deborah Louise and in any case it would not be the full truth of me. I would say that my purpose here on Wordpress is to express some of my random experiences, thoughts and feelings, to share about my particular journey and explore some subjects dear to my heart, such as emotional recovery, healing and astrology while posting up some of the prose/poems which are an outgrowth of my labours with life, love and relationships. If anything I write touches you I would be so pleased to hear for the purpose of reaching out and expressung ourselves is hopefully to connect with each other and find where our souls meet.

  1. From the following list we can see that what we call ‘envy’ is an evolved, motivational mechanism:

    ‘Envy’ is universal among human societies
    ‘Envy’ is both excitable and compulsive
    The focus of ‘envy’ is generally a perceived rival of the same sex
    We observe other animal species to act in ways which in humans we would regard as ‘envious’ behaviour
    ‘Envious’ behaviour in humans directly corresponds with ways in which animal systems of competition and hierarchy operate


  2. I have been surfing online more than three hours today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers
    made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.
