La naissance d'un narcissique mâle
Male narcissism is born of loss and desperation, born of a boy’s worshipful cravings, strivings to not only become man but to become “the” man, the flawed hero loved, the one adored man who is too often afraid to look, to see, to recognize a boy’s need for “his” recognition, his admiration, his affection.
From the alpha formulation and connection of a first boy-atom there is never more demanding a need, never less desperate a requirement - to be loved by a man - one man - “the” first man in a boy's life - the sole man to be looked up to and respected - the father-man.
But then there are rules, held-fast rules, not to be crossed rules, conduct rules, social rules, withholding of, denial of male sensitivity rules. . . And in those needs; boy-male sharings, cryings, yearnings, lovings and cravings to be held, a son is never more never less than an embryonic father in lust to be seen, caressed and embraced as the only vital link to the continuation of the adored father into timeless time. . .
A son is the only being who needs to become his father, needing to know that the father acknowledges that dream - acknowledges “him” - and his need to be “the” loved boy, “the” held and cuddled and warmly looked upon boy. But having been failed in their quest to become the one man of their dreams, boys often fail themselves, by compensating, by finally accepting to not want anything more than the man “in” their dreams. And because of this, father idols are too soon lost to sports idols, to music, to best-friend, to rebel and gang idols - they lose to those who have reached the omega of their boyhoods, also having been failed and each in turn having failed the others upon reaching the alpha of their own manhoods.
And so, when self-love is born, it is often all there is. All there is, when the only and closest thing to being held, to being recognized, to being considered, to being appreciated and respected is an ejaculatory “that”; and so violent narcissism is never far behind - chasing, chasing and eventually catching and squeezing and crushing another... Thus, passing on the alpha and omega of boy pain become a sociopathic need perpetuate the mantra of "me"; the cold hard facts of never having been seen, recognized or touched. And so, why touch or be touched at all?
