In a comment on our last post — of which, in a non-yogic, very attached type of way, I’m pretty proud — SB asked this question:
Under “Denial”, What is the stereotypical image of an Ashtangi?
And, by the way, the full denial section in our exploration of what makes a high-functioning Ashtangi goes like this:
- Have difficulty viewing themselves as Ashtangis because they do not fit the stereotypical image and because they feel their lives are manageable
- Avoid recovery help
In other words, your high-functioning Ashtangi doesn’t think of her/himself as an Ashtangi because … well, that’s the question.
What is it these HFAs don’t see in themselves? (It may just be all the other attributes listed in that post. But maybe it is more.)
