NEUROTIC RESIGNATION

was first described by U.S. psychoanalyst Karen Homey (1885 - 1952) as the avoidance of any one (or more) aspect of reality which may have brought ones inner conflicts into ones awareness, which may result in withdrawal from an activity or even over activity in other areas.

NEUROTIC RESIGNATION: "Those with neurotic needs tend to stick to rigid regimes, otherwise known as neurotic resignation which alleviates any potential disruption which they cant handle."
