Narcissism in the news and media.

 

 

Let’s call this what it is: spiritual narcissism. The value of narcissism is the classic “I – me – mine” mentality that places personal pleasure and fulfillment the forefront of concerns.

Historian Christopher Lasch went so far as to christen ours “the culture of narcissism,” calling it our new religion.

 

 

The London restaurant was elegant, the food delicious, the service excellent. With his back to the room, my husband didn’t see the beautiful couple arrive and sit down opposite.

Both in their mid-20s, they were real head-turners. The woman – dressed in the flimsiest of lace tops on a bitterly cold evening …

 

 

But that shouldn’t be surprising: We know—from psychotherapy and general psychological observation—that people who demonstrate features of a narcissistic personality, mainly marked by a sense of entitlement in their conduct, often behave that way. But the researchers didn’t expect this.

 

 

To put it simply, empaths are the opposite of narcissists. They’re not just highly-sensitive, they’re on a more extreme end of the emotional spectrum.

Narcissists, for example, are invited to people they will get the most significant use from. Often, this means they pursue and target empaths. Empaths are the opposite of narcissists.

While people with narcissistic personality disorder have no empathy and thrive on the need for admiration, empaths are highly …

 

 

This is because empaths have many compassion and understanding to give, while narcissists thrive on someone worshiping them. But this isn’t a good match, because empaths tend to forgive everything the narcissist does.

This results in them being entirely used and degraded, while the narcissist …

 

“Our…totally self-centred and demanding baby daughter.” That’s how my dad introduced me to his readership in Chapter 3 of his book.

One of the defining traits of narcissism is a lack of empathy, aka, the ability to both understand and feel what others around you are feeling. Having a certain amount of understanding is imperative for a healthy emotional life.

Empathy is the ability most humans have to understand the way someone else is feeling.

Unless you are a psychopath, narcissist, or sociopath, you will have the ability to feel empathy for others on some level. How much compassion we think is on a scale, and some people feel it more intensely than others.

People very high up on the scale are known as empaths, and they take it to the next level.

My argument in this article is that our narcissists defined us as a person wrongly and pressed us into a lifestyle that was inauthentic to us. They scoffed at our dreams and mocked/appropriated our creativity.
