I haven’t blogged for quite some time and for some weird reason I cant tell why. Procrastination has been hitting on me for the longest time and I guess I have fallen for its trick. Anywho, I am back, I am not sure what I will be writing about but I will try and write something once in a while, when laziness aint on my case like crazy.
Now, my friend thinks all bloggers especially fashion bloggers are narcissists, I am not sure I fit in that category of narcissists cus I am quite a down to earth J. Just in case you are looking for your dictionary to know who are these people, narcissist, I mean, here’s the definition. We’ll define the condition itself-narcissism. Narcissm is a condition where the said person cant get enough of themselves. They fall in love with themselves every other time and of course they have to drag you into their condition.
Narcissism originated from a Greek story about one young man who couldn’t date anyone because he thought he was too good for them. His name was Narcissus and he fell in love with his own reflection in a pool of water. That’s how this young man met his Maker, outta loneliness..
You are a narcissist if you;
- Have problems in keeping satisfying relationships
- Pretend or feel that you are more important than the rest of us
- Keep bragging about your achievements either ‘loudly’ or softly
- Claim to be an expert in lots of things
- Can’t see the world from other people’s perspectives
- Are sensitive to insults either real or imagined J
- Feel a sense of entitlement
There are several deadly sins associated with narcissism
Magical thinking: All narcissists think or feel they are perfect either through distortion or through illusion. They will use anything to shame others who don’t share on their narcissism.
Arrogance: A narcissist who feels that others don’t recognize him is quite arrogant and he will do anything to make the other party feel degraded.
Entitlement: Narcissists feel that they are entitled to favorable treatment in whatever areas cus they think they are special. If they don’t get this treatment, they consider it as an attack to their superiority and the parties involved will be labeled difficult or awkward. This is bound to trigger narcissistic rage
Boundaries: To narcissists, there are no boundaries and they think the rest of us down to earth people should not be separated from their narcissism. A narcissistic supply is a person who shares the feelings of the narcissist and they are expected to massage his ego as well as live up to his expectations.
Did you know that 1 percent of the generation suffers from narcissism? Now you know….
Search yourself (do some soul searching ) and you will know whether you are a narcissist…Unfortunately you will not know because it doesn’t hurt if you are suffering from it. You could however ask your friends if they think you are a narcissist. If they are truly honest with you, you should start booking an appointment with your shrink J
