Mary-Kate Olsen felt deprived in some manner, whether or not she actually was deprived in some way. Emotional separations or repression of her needs and feelings may typify her early life, at least as Olsen remembers it. Forgiving her parents and/or letting go of any resentments she has about the limitations that she experienced early in her life is crucial.
