A person has made a successful transition to adulthood when she has learned to provide food, water, and shelter for herself.By the same token, she hasn’t fully matured until she has also learned to provide emotional energy for herself.A secure person can tolerate, and often enjoys silence.

As children, we get our emotional energy from our parents; just like we get food, water, and shelter.

Just as food provides nourishment for our bodies, emotional energy nourishes our souls; giving us confidence and security.

Scientists have found that infants respond dramatically to human touch, and will almost “starve” without it.

Extreme insecurity is usually marked by an obsession with gaining the approval of other people.
