Let's imagine 4 children.

  • One feels like not being loved by the parents
  • One feels like not being desired by girls
  • Another one feels like not being "enough"
  • One lost the mother.

So, the purpose of this question is to explore and compare/contrast the consequences between lack of desire and lack of affect in the given four situations, correct? Then, your suggestion is that "lack of self-esteem, narcissism, and trying to prove their value...need for not depending on others" may be common consequences. –  Double U Jun 21 '14 at 21:08
I've seen two girls which have both been poor which share a lot of traits. Both have had to be strong. One lacked of discipline, the other not. But both want to help others and not to be helped (since this implies the idea of them needing help??). –  Revious Jun 23 '14 at 15:09
