- You crave attention and affection from someone who treats you like you are special (superior).
- You crave sympathy for being misunderstood and how most people don’t see how unique and special (superior) you are.
- You feel trapped in a bubble where nothing can hurt or touch you, but there is something that makes you feel separate from others.
