These people like to mother those they care for and tend to be overly full of love and care for their children, family and friends, knowing what is best for them and trying to live their lives for them. They like to feel needed and are hurt if those around them are too independent and do not seek or heed their advice. The most negative Chicory people become possessive, clingy and selfish and can then stifle the freedom of those whom they love, so turning them away in their desire to hold on to them. They are happiest when they have their family around them, when they are the center of attention and the one their family turns to for guidance. This essence helps such people to channel their love in a more positive way so that they care and advise, but at the same time are aware of their loved ones own needs and desires- being there when needed but mindful of individuality and the need for independence.
