What is a narcissist?!?

Sandrarose.com

Most of us hear the word Narcissism and we think of a man (or woman) who has an exaggerated sense of self-importance.

That explanation seems benign because we know someone who fits that description. Narcissists are usually well-dressed, handsome, beautiful, charming, funny, and extremely outgoing.

The problem begins when you fall in love with one.

That’s when the sheep’s clothing falls off to reveal the wolf who lurks beneath.

To your friends he is still handsome, charming, funny and outgoing. But to you he is a monster.

The reason I write about narcissists so much is because narcissism is a disease in our community. It has claimed so many lives, and yet there is no cure.

Narcissists seek you out if you have money, power and/or respect.

They also seek you out if you are nice, compassionate, sweet and generous, because these are qualities that they will never possess.

Narcissists eventually see these qualities in you as a weakness. Underneath his or her charming exterior most narcissists are envious, needy, insecure, depressed, self-centered and extremely selfish.

No matter what you do, they will never see you as their equal. The children of narcissists get the worst of it.

The more you try to please narcissists, the more they will abuse you mentally, and sometimes physically.

Egotistic Egotism response: WOW!!! I read this earlier today on SandraRose.com and the funny thing is when I was brainstorming names for my Egotistic Brand last year I came across terms such as Addict, Artistic, Possessed because these terms are extreme and I wanted my brand to be represented in the most extreme case allowing me to be as creative as possible. I stumbled upon Egotistic and the term narcissist was associated. I thought Yes thats dope meaning its all about self importance in relation to a fashion image but the more I pondered on it I didn’t want to seem consumed in who an individual IS but what that individual represents and no matter who we are we all have an Ego wether its inflated or deflated it for sure exist.

However after reading this article on the in depth term “narcissist” its safe to say I am happy I did not settle on that term but concerned about human nature. People can project one thing to those not around them on a daily basis including their mothers, friends, and colleague’s but the person who really comes to learn you best is your companion because there is a unique love that can only be shared with this person and if you are in a relationship with a narcissist BABY RUN AWAY AS FAST AS YOU CAN!!!!!
