Read this today... Thought we'd discuss this if anyone is interested. Let's start with the first 3 "commandments" this discussion...
The First Commandment:
Thou shalt reinterpret reality to preserve the perfect fantasy.
Even if you see it, it's not real. You must have made a mistake. Therefore, reinterpret what you saw to make it nice and respectable. If you don't, people will think you're and we're all crazy. We wouldn't want them to think that now, would we?
The Second Commandment:
Thou shalt always send mixed messages, especially when it concerns relationships...
You don't really know what's true. Either your father loves you or he hates you. Since you never know for sure, you'll never be quite sure if others really mean what they say since those you loved most only spoke in mixed messages. They sounded good, but you couldn't trust them.
The Third Commandment:
Thou shalt be an adult.
Being child-like and spontaneous is irresponsible and bad. You must act like an adult at all times and be responsible, even if you're only five years old.
A. Have you experienced these first 3?
B. What is the opposite of these?
