i noticed a weird connection: "Childhood lonliness as a prelude to daydreaming" is the caption for the first paragraph that is directly related to the study, yet the same paragraph's main subject is "the failure of caregivers to regulate our respondents feelings"
how is "childhood lonliness as a prelude to daydreaming" and "the failure of caregivers to regulate our respondents feelings" connected?
also i actually have useful info sorry for annoying many people in this forum for my constant questions:
-The lack of social contact or support - A state in which the individual lacks a sense of belonging socially, lacks engagement with others, has a minimal number of social contacts, and they are deficient in fulfilling and quality relationships. -The objective absence or paucity of contacts and interactions between a person and a social network, or -The lack of social contact or support. www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK537897/
lonliness- subjective distressed feeling of being alone/separated (same link from above) -A subjective feeling state of being alone, separated or apart from others, and has been conceptualized as an imbalance (or discrepancy) between desired social contacts and actual social contacts. www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK537897/
it's possible to feel lonely without being socially isolated, and the opposite is true
emotion- associated with bodily reactions, biochemical reactions in one's body (the brain)
feeling-conscious experience of emotional reactions. mental portrayal of what is going on w. your body when you have an emotion, is byproduct of one's brain percieving and assigning meaning to one's emotions. next thing that happens after having an emotion.
I read the passage you mentioned, it says this: " The failure of caregivers to regulate our respondents’ feelings as manifested in the quote provided above may have generated continuous pressure to develop inner resources to express intense feelings and experience worthiness or soothing comfort."
'As manifested in the quote provided above' is the key here. The "failure" is something the paper already talked about. They are saying this failure of the parents drove the child into themself, because the child felt alone. Eventually relying on daydreaming to self-soothe.
