I am trying to write vectors in polar coordinates and plot them on the x,y plane.

I can plot Cartesian vectors on the x,y plane but I am trying to plot the vector < Cos[\[Theta]] + Cos[\[Theta]]\/r\^2, \(-Sin[\[Theta]]\) -
Sin[\[Theta]]\/r\^2 > on the x,y plane and cannot find out how to do it in Mathematica.
Attached are some of my attempts so far. Some of what I have done is lost because of the way I work sorry.

Thank you very much,
James Aaron Busald
