The Order of the Golden Fleece was defended from possible accusations of prideful pomp by the Burgundian court poet Michault Taillevent, who asserted that it was instituted:
“ Non point pour jeu ne pour esbatement,
Mais à la fin que soit attribuée
Loenge à Dieu trestout premièrement
Et aux bons gloire et haulte renommée.
Translated into English:
“ Not for amusement nor for recreation,
But for the purpose that praise shall be given to God,
In the very first place,
And to the good, glory and high renown.
Today I thought I should talk about something different, stalkers and secret admirers.
Why do people become stalkers or secret admirers, even more importantly why do some people have stalkers ?
actually stalk me, for me it was a very weird and somewhat scary experience.
The girl was in love with me, but I did not feel the same for her at all ( Seeing as I am not attracted to girls at all) but it was a very traumatizing and stressful situation.
People characterized as stalkers may have a mistaken belief that another person loves them, or that they need rescuing.
Stalking can sometimes consist of an accumulation of a series of actions which in themselves can be legal, such as calling on the phone, sending gifts, or sending emails. ( and I have experience all of the above, receiving email, phone calls, pictures of me taken when I didn’t even know it, weird gifts)
Despite a growing body of research in the past five years, stalking is still very misunderstood by the public, the courts and law enforcement. For practical purposes there are three types of stalking.
Relationship stalking occurs when a couple breaks up. But that is not stalking in a legal sense. It just looks like and feels like stalking.
Obsessional stalking develops because of the way the couple interacted and the way they broke up. Obsessional stalking is a psychological problem that has many causes but in general it is the result of an “on again” and “off again” relationship as was well as a “desire and fear of a relationship” in one person and “fear of separation and loss” in the other.
The childhood of at least one of these people is usually emotionally barren or emotionally abusive.
Delusional stalking occurs when a mental disorder causes the person to become obsessed or fixated on some unsuspecting person because of what amounts to a medical condition.
Moving on, secret admirers aren’t really different from stalkers.
I think the only difference is that we somehow know that the secret admirers won’t actually ever hurt us, or hurt other people because of their professed love for us.
