From oedipal to Narcisus








The relations between the sexes have risen from a model based on the Oedipal mode of the relationships to another based on Narcissistic mode type.

With the first model, the male tried to revive with his female partners, the same procedures used with the mother: a woman looking for friendly, ready to be a container of each emotion, a woman who could cook, could take care, could advise, in short, not really a true mate of life but a mother, a relationship was immature, but that at least guaranteed a sympathetic exchange albeit warped of the
life experiences.

In the report of the narcissistic type, the male seeks a mirror that gives him a reassuring image, rather than a real object relationship. It then looks for objects that can increase self-esteem: the nice car, designer clothes, the physical athletic.

While the Oedipal relationship allows a certain, albeit distorted sharing of experiences, and therefore, to some extent also a personal growth, the narcissistic relationship can become a kind of relationship where the autistic personality is turned in on. The subject is bend on itself and he is not able to share emotions, therefore can not grow emotionally, can not draw anything from outside.

he does not seek relationships with real people who are perceived as dangerous, but he seeks relationships with things. For this reason the young people tend

For this reason many young people today tend to use the computer more and more as a means to know and make friends. the computer screen is less dangerous and easier to deal with rather than having a real relationship with a person of flesh and bones. I'm not saying that this aid that the computer offers us both necessarily bad, but it can become bad if it becomes obsessive and a privileged way if not the only form in which you relate with the outside world.
In fact, many things that they preserve us from the dangers of a real and immediate relationship with reality,they also preserve from purchasing useful experiences for our personal growth. Valuable experiences that you only get risking something and entering the fray of the life.
