I was always the chubby little fat kid. In my mind it was ok because everyone looked like me. My grandmother, aunts and cousins were all overweight. I went to school and of course I was picked on. Being overweight shaped the dynamic of my personality in many ways.
The girl slept in the nude and made very little effort to cover up. When I was 35, I married a man who seemed to be overly fond of my year-old daughter. He spent much time ''tucking her in'' and playing physical games-wrestling, hugging and dancing. When she started to date, he insulted every boy she brought home. They grew closer and closer. Their relationship was obvious to me, but she denied it, and he called me ''crazy and evil-minded. I retained a lawyer who wrote her a letter demanding that she move from our home. She moved.
In Neo-Freudian psychology , the Electra complex , as proposed by Carl Jung in his Theory of Psychoanalysis ,   is a girl's psychosexual competition with her mother for possession of her father. In the course of her psychosexual development, the complex is the girl's phallic stage ; a boy's analogous experience is the Oedipus complex. The Electra complex occurs in the third—phallic stage ages 3—6 —of five psychosexual development stages: i the Oral , ii the Anal , iii the Phallic , iv the Latent , and v the Genital —in which the source of libido pleasure is in a different erogenous zone of the infant's body. In classical psychoanalytic theory, the child's identification with the same-sex parent is the successful resolution of the Electra complex and of the Oedipus complex ; his and her key psychological experience to developing a mature sexual role and identity.
