Picture of Ammonium fluoratum
Essence: idealising glamour.
They idealise the world of glamour and glitter. They fantasise about how it would be if they were part of this scene. Then the world would know what they are really worth. If only they had enough money, if only they had a higher social status, then they could prove who they really were.
Possessions play an important part in this whole scene. They need a large house and a fast car etc. to steal the show. These possessions are the main ideal in their life to work towards. They think that once they have reached that they’ll be happy.
Another important aspect, linked to the whole idea of glamour, is sexuality. It is another ideal they hope to achieve: once they have gathered enough glittering prizes all women (or men ) are bound to fall for them.
Disappointed in glamour
After a while they get disappointed because they did not reach the position they had in mind. Life did not give them the women and the money that they had hoped for and they are disappointed that nobody appreciates them.
Or they did get what they wanted but all these riches still did not bring them the happiness they had hoped for. ’Money isn’t everything’ is an apt expression to describe their state.
Disappointed in gambling
Because they like to make money the easy way they are inclined to resort to gambling. But here again they tend to idealise the opportunities and become over optimistic about the outcome. They think it will be easy and they they will know the tricks in no time. When the inevitable losses occur they are most disappointed and think that the whole world is against them.
Resentful from lack of money and sex.
In the later stages they get quite resentful. The bitterness about all the missed opportunities leaves its mark, and they become rather bitter and sarcastic.
Ammonium fluoratum can be a useful ‘in-between’ remedy for people who are resentful about loss of property, through being cheated or through careless investment or gambling on the stock market or whatever other reason.
Another variation may be that they are resentful because they don’t get enough sex, for instance when they don’t have a partner or when their partner is not as keen as they are, or when they have lost their partner because of their resentful behaviour.
Critical and narcissistic
On the one hand they are very critical and on the other hand they can be very narcissistic. Their critical attitude causes them to be blunt and plainly cynical in their communications. Their narcissistic attitude only accentuates this hardness, so it gets more and more difficult to make real contact with other people. They simply don’t feel what goes on in other people anymore and when they do feel something they don’t know how to express it because they don’t know how to break through their own sullen shell anymore.
Not only are they very resentful, their line of thinking is also quite superficial and they are unable to see that their unrealistic expectations are bound to lead to disappointment. So they end up in a vicious circle of unrealistic expectations and resentment about unfulfilled ideals.
