Too much attention is too much love, too much love, and the output is a large internal antagonism. And then people cry about the injustice of being, they say, we are so good, and we are not loved. Moral: "don't strangle people with your love."
Pride is too much self-love. A narcissist is very afraid for himself. Fear for himself, for injustice to himself... for not being loved enough, poisons the soul of this person. Proud people are always ill, have a lot of problems, are suspicious, vain, crooked, touchy and all that.
Metaphorically, the proud person so over-loves himself that he gets used to his own love and now needs love from the outside. The proud man begins to demand love from others. The proud man is ready to do anything to be loved... but, an important point, this readiness of his is not love directed outward, but a thirst for power over love to direct the flow of love to himself.
Over-love is too much attention. A person gets used to attention and begins to feel the eternal insufficiency of this attention, try to attract attention, experience pain, sublimate it into anxiety and aggression.
The life of an over-loved girl is not sugar. Look what's happening: her parents fall out of love with her and she tries to protect herself from love, saying: "I'm bad, you don't have to love me." Parents deprive her of her freedom and say: "Be good!» And she tells them: "Go to hell with your love! I'll be bad!» And it does the opposite. Doing the opposite, the girl gets extremely unpleasant results and gets into a bad story. In the end, it turns out that whatever she does, everything turns out badly. The inability to be good drives the girl crazy and provokes a split personality, suspiciousness (paranoia), fills life with fear, mysticism and all the others phenomena that are well suited to the symptoms of schizophrenia.
The narcissistic person can't stand being bad and craves love. If a child tries to be "I am good" all the time, he will begin to deny himself "I am bad". You can not praise the child all the time, you need to scold him periodically, otherwise an extremely sensitive person will grow up, dependent on external good attitude.
Cleopatra syndrome is a woman's reaction to being overly in love. The lover creates an idol out of a woman and wants to have power over her. The situation creates addiction, withdrawal, fears, conflicts, power struggles, etc.
It is difficult for a person who was over-loved in his childhood to find a good job because he thinks everyone owes him something. For such a person, looking for work is beneath his dignity: he considers that others have to offer him work. In his view, he does his employer a huge favor by working for him. Not all employers need that favor.
