When Narcissists call you Crazy

NARCISSISTIC PERSONALITY DISORDER-

Has a grandiose sense of self-importance (exaggerates achievements, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements)

Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited power, success, brilliance beauty or ideal love

Believes he or she is “special” and can only be understood by similarly special, high status people

Requires excessive admiration

Has a sense of entitlement

Is inter-personally exploitative

Lacks empathy

Is envious of others or believes others are envious of him/her

Shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes

SOCIOPATHS EXHIBIT SOME OF THOSE TRAITS, AND THESE AS WELL:

Failure to conform to social norms as evidenced by repeatedly performing acts that are grounds for arrest

Deceitfulness

Impulsivity

Irritability and aggressiveness, as indicated by repeated physical fights or assaults

Reckless disregard for the safety of others

Consistent irresponsibility, as indicated by repeated failure to sustain consistent work behavior or honor financial commitments

Lack of remorse, as being indifferent to or rationalizing having hurt others

If you recognize any of those behaviors in a partner or friend who you have had a relationship with, then congratulations- you were in a toxic relationship with a narcissist or a sociopath.

Now, if you were like others, then you probably felt at war with your own mind, constantly wondering if the fault was with you, or them. After doing some research, as I’m sure many of you have done in this situation, discovering that all the things you thought were “broken” in you, were actually just fine. You are not the one who was so destroyed that you couldn’t find a way to keep yourself together unless you were destroying another person…that was them.
