Oedipus Complex

Doubt No More!! For a few weeks now, I have been sitting here wondering what the hell is wrong with me, why would the one that I cared about treat me so poorly and choose whom he did. Then, the other night, after a few drinks, it dawned on me. This is the Oedipus Complex brought to life. Something that should actually be studied and observed instead of avoided.
For those of you that don't know what the Oedipus Complex is, in short, it is Freud's way of saying that some men, just still need their mamma's. King Oedipus was destined by fate to kill his father and take his mother as a wife. He desires the mother and resents the father.
When applied to the last situation I have been in, it's like turning on a light! I wasn't going to be anyone's Mama. So there is nothing wrong with me...and Freud was right on some points.

***Just remember, it was NOT the mothers fault that Oedipus did the things he did, do not blame the mother***

Dont know about that, i think it is easier to put labels on people to explain that some people are just born jerks. Its nice to have comfort to explain why we marry such assholes in our lives and it breaks up later. At least we can excuse it away. We make poor desicions and marry asswipes at times, but thats life, just pick yourself up and go on. But what ever the reason the last thing you said is probably true, there is nothing wrong with you, and he was an asswipe. Hope you find better next time around.
