Imagine you’re driving along, and you look in your rearview mirror and see a police car behind you. Do you feel confident and relieved, thinking “I’m so glad I’m being protected and served”? I doubt it. Your first thought is most likely of how soon you can lose the cop, either by making a turn or letting them pass you. As you continue to see the police car behind you, your thoughts almost certainly turn to whether you did something wrong, or whether you’re inadvertently doing something wrong right now the cop can seize on to pull you over. And the longer the police car stays behind you, the more turns it follows you through, the louder that panicky voice in your head becomes: “I’m in trouble! I must’ve done something wrong.”

In short, you’re reduced to feeling like a “bad” child in the face of an adult authority figure.
