EXPERIENCE has taught us that the process of being out of touch with our true feelings induces grandiosity and compulsivity.
Grandiosity and compulsivity are clear symptoms that the demon is quietly waiting, and that the core problems have yet to be addressed. This insight often comes forward during some form of counseling or intimate sharing; it is generally when we get the first indicator that something is hiding in our blind spots and is having a profound effect on our lives.
Often it gets pointed out to us that we really don’t have friends or that our primary relationships are becoming progressively more non-intimate or . . . and there are hundreds of “or’s,” and our journey does not truly begin until we begin to notice.
