The Inadequacy Principle leaves us close-minded, deluded, and disconnected from interdependence. Like ghosts, we're physically here, but we're always wishing we were somewhere else, someway else, someone else. A life lived in inadequacy gives us CDD (Compassion Deficit Disorder). While we are busy scouring our brains for that perfect identity which we are not, the real people we care about are left waiting for us in the real world.
