What mark are we good enough ? When are we self- developed enough to accept ourselves?
Alas, some seem to be born with a super sized ego that is in full bloom even early on. These"entitled" ones can show up anywhere, and in any family; They tend to abuse and manipulate, especially the closest one to them, usually the mothering object.
Kids allowed to have a degree of separateness that doesn't compromise safety tend to thrive and are less prone to neediness and inappropriate developmental stage behavior. In other words, give up control, let kids go and they will develop at their own pace. Put a dog collar on them and eventually pay the price.from drug abuse to running away and suicide.
A child is good enough at birth. By that, I mean deserving love, shelter, and stability.and not withdrawn because of a mistake or lapse in judgment. Good enough even if not bill-board beautiful. Moreover, good enough even if not interested in what's popular at the moment. And yes, even good enough if there are no jobs for which you might gain some self esteem at the moment.
You are beautiful because you are you and not because of what you do.
Outstanding answer, solarcaptain. And if we could teach this to all parents and children!
