Often if our egos cannot gain validation through positive attention, they will seek it through negative actions or reaction by provoking another (villain role). This can increase if the wounds of the individual desires to experience more pain to avoid being invisible. By being stuck in our story, we may seek attention via being the victim by being easily offended or reactionary toward others. If no one listens or cares about our story, it can become our own truth and problem to never resolve. The lover role is where we become attached to another individual. This is not true love, which needs no wanting. What is often mistaken as ‘falling in love’ is an increase of ego wanting and needing someone to satisfy what we cannot within ourselves.
Role-playing is hard work and often cannot be maintained forever, especially when we enter into a committed relationship.
