After writing a blog for Psyched in San Francisco called I was compelled to speak more about needy people. Our culture is brutal to dependency, neediness or vulnerability -dropping needy people on their ass if they are too clingy. True, clingy and needy people have adapted to a painful past and do have a personal journey of healing their inner child they must take up but our culture at large re inflicts abandonment wounding by encouraging the kind of self reliance that is “self abandoning” and shunning the outward display of vulnerability. In fact, seeing this need in another is repulsive to the culture because it stirs in us our own inner helpless needy and fragile inner child. Read and listen on. This is important stuff and it is a collective healing project we all are called to take up.
