Get the peter pan complex mug.
believes they deserve to have whatever they want, lazy, slacker, believes fun is the most important thing in life, does the minimum to get by, life lacks direction, avoids responsibilities, people tell them they are childish and need to grow up, would rather live in their head than the real world, wants success to just happen to them, focuses on fantasies more than reality, never know what to do next, does not feel they have any reason to accomplish anything, tend to ignore or put off problems, believes fun is the most important thing in life, most people think they are crazy, forgets scheduled appointments, motivated more by the past or now than future, gets attention through negative behavior
Feeling her parents should provide everything she wanted, Heather refused to get a part time job so she could party more. Heather was suffering from Peter Pan Complex.
