Paper 4— Self in Love



Referring to what you know about the strong self, write three or six pages about the kind of relationship a person with a strong self might have.


To help focus your paper, you might reflect on how a strong self might answer these questions:


01.  Why should I expect to be treated with love, respect &             kindness by others?

02.  How can I be attractive if I am only average-looking?

Dress like a whore?  Move like a stripper?


03. How do I define “working at a relationship?”


04.  What is wrong with trading sex for love?  Love for sex?

(If sex is not the first priority in a partnership, what is?)


05.  What is wrong with trading taking-care-of-my-partner for love?

06.  What is wrong with partnering with someone simply because s/he needs me?


07.  What is wrong with manipulating my partner (by whining, sulking, bullying,    shaming, guilt-making)?  .

08.  What is wrong with allowing myself to be abused by my partner if that is the price I must pay for a partner?   (An abuser is often very needy, and I’ve been taught to be forgiving.)


09.  What is the difference between “life-supporting” my partner and “life-partnering” my partner?

10.  If the sex is good enough, I can overlook the undesirable aspects of my relationship.  What is wrong with that?  (“You & me. Baby, ain’t nothin’ but mammals. . . .” Men are sex-driven studs, and women are sex objects.)


11.  What is the least kind of partner I could settle for?
