Everytime I listen to someone who is going on and on about narcissism, (and it is usually about their ex) I always get the sense that THEY seem
narcissistic their self.
They sit there and describe what about their ex is narcissistic - while doing exactly what they are describing.
"He/she was always criticizing and judging others, trying to make others seem faulty or inferior to their self.
Instead of people worrying about pegging another as narcissistic, it might be more constructive for everyone to look at their own. To consider that
narcissism is some that we all have some of- it only becomes a "disorder" when it gets to an extreme... and even then, as far as I can tell, it can be
expressed or manifested in two different ways- either covert or overt.
And those two attract each other.
The only way to stop getting involved with very narcissistic people is work on cutting down your own.
But then, it seems so often that the passive narcissist is enjoying the role of victim to such an extent, they don't really want to change anything,
This analyzation comes from my own experience as a covert narcissist. It was very hard for me to face this about myself, but very necessary when I
became a mother.
Now I am just open and honest with my narcissism.
