Why So Treacherous? Attention Starved
Perhaps you have competed with and lost to a Superman on the team and have now fell into the snare of fighting for the approval and acceptance you see other teammates get. This snare is tricky because a sustained state of deprivation of anything will begin to dominate our thoughts. Remember back to the last time you were extremely thirsty. Remember how hard it was to think of anything but water or something else to drink? You became desperate to quench that thirst. Affirmation is a deep human need and when we don’t get it over time it can become a snare that can dominate our thoughts and actions making us treacherous to work with.
