Hi Kate, I hope all is well on your end. My son gave me a hug today upon leaving. Yet, he seems somewhat preabsorbed or self centered. I don't know if I can go as far as saying he lacks empathy like his Dad. I thought part of it is a protective measure by focusing on himself, keeping all in order so he doesn't become anxious. Also his age and state in life.I wondered if this is protective measure possibility, given his childhood. Id hate to see his self centerdness as a deficiency if its really his way of keeping order. (My other son shows more empathy.) I am aware he suffers with anxiety and depression as well.
hi Kate I just wanted you to know that he didn't act protective while he was hugging me, just in his his behavior and body language
Okay. Good, and thank you.
