Does Tom Cruise Lack Whole Object Relations #askswell?

You black and white thinking, if I'm right, then you're wrong, which must make me good and you bad. As children, this is how playtime often went. But we all eventually grew out of that. At least most of us. But the reality is, some of us don't grow out of our childlike behaviors

I don't know that I really have a specific answer. The more I read about whole object relations, the more confused I got. The name itself has seems extremely problematic to, liken, the whole of a person, a whole human, and all that that encompasses as a whole object seems very problematic. But and I don't know enough about Scientology, let alone enough about this particular case study. Right. Because what was he like before he came into Scientology? What exactly is Scientology?

So sometimes my daughter will come home from school. We don't really have to do this practice anymore, but we did it when we were younger. And she'd come home and she'd be so mad about something that happened at school. She'd be so mad at somebody. Somebody said this, this and this to me. And she'd go on and I'd listen

Instead, it makes me think of the actor who has some sort of something that happens theoretically in their minds or in their lives before they enter the stage. Right. You have to sort of come in with an impetus and a mood and a feeling before you can continue with that next scene. And we don't always think about when somebody comes into a conversation and maybe says something or does something that we don't like of where they've just come from, either literally or within their thinking

But I also look back on that and think there were so many interactions that I had had with boys or even just friends, and there could have been so much more of a learning opportunity in it. And I do think we kind of unintentionally in the interest of being supportive toward our kids. You're going to hear my dog in the background because he's trying to play

Even looking back on when I was married, initially, you point fingers and say it was all them. Then you can finally come to a place of, oh, yeah, it adds great complexity, greater nuance
