“When the anima or animus projections [onto others] are withdrawn, the complex of energy that was bound up in the projection is also withdrawn. What this means practically is that a woman stops blaming her ‘lack of opportunity’ on the construction of her genitalia, or on the prejudices of society. No longer identifying herself as a victim, she begins to consider her own self-image as a possible basis for the inadequacy she feels. Instead of trying to be what she thinks will ‘succeed’ in the world, or ‘what the world wants’, she resolves to turn her attention to becoming more fully what her authentic nature longs to express.”
