They have a conflict between being normal, having to be normal on one hand and the feeling that the world and they themselves are more than just matter. They feel that it is important to go their own way but have to adapt to the rules and patterns of teachers and parents. They lack the power to stand up for themselves. They feel they have to adapt and please to feel protected in society. They try to get recognition by being sweet and nice but society do not understand them and their sensitivity and refinement. They get easily crushed in the hardness and demands of the world, of teachers, managers and parents. And they themselves do not understand this world, the hardness and rudeness of it. They can easily make choices in life that are not theirs but that of their parents or boyfriend. It makes them feel confused and out of balance.
Desire for freedom, autonomy, making their own choices.
