I characterized it as "Subjective Omnipotence," which is a term typically applied to children who are still in the phase of their development where they think the universe should provide for their needs. Instead of being grateful to the person who provides for them they just end up mad at said individual for everything that isn't perfect.
Funny, I've followed this RR since the fall, loving all of it. I go back to the beginning today and find this, that I somehow missed the first time through. A perfect summary of 14 years spent with my first wife. Still shaking my head. A fantastic journey AH, with much learned by those of us along for the ride. Thank you.
