Tenth Anniversary of the April Blogging from A to Z Challenge – Letter N is for Narcissism


Tenth Anniversary of the April Blogging from A to Z Challenge

I have chosen to write for the mental health topic. It is very important to me that we support all those with mental health issues and I personally suffer from a good amount of them myself.

Letter N is for Narcissism

*******************************

Who Is Really a Narcissist?

It’s easy to slap the “narcissist” label on someone who spends a bit too much time talking about his career or who never seems to doubt herself, but pathologically narcissistic personalities are relatively rare—an estimated 1 percent of the population. Narcissism, too, is more complicated than it may seem: It’s different from a surplus of self-esteem, encompassing a hunger for appreciation, a sense of specialness, and a lack of empathy, along with other attributes that can prove damaging in relationships. Interestingly, in addition to thinking they are better and more deserving than others, research suggests, highly narcissistic people often admit that they are more self-centered, too.

I have someone in my life who is a narcissist. It is hard to deal with and to get away from them.

    I have used this label frequently, but correctly. Unfortunately, I have been attracted to male narcissists who have also had other mental illnesses as well. I don’t know why. I’ve stopped dating, and that’s for the best.

      I don’t date either. Lots of married men pretending to be single until they slip and get found out. Tired of all the games and I also have been attracted to narcissistic males.
