The Infamous Dirty Word: Narcissist


โฃ Narcissism is basically the state of being egotistical, self-focused, and vain. ๐˜™๐˜ฆ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ค๐˜ฉ ๐˜ด๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ๐˜ด ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ต ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ค๐˜ข๐˜ฏ ๐˜ข๐˜ค๐˜ต๐˜ถ๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ญ๐˜บ ๐˜ซ๐˜ถ๐˜ด๐˜ต ๐˜ข๐˜ด๐˜ฌ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฑ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ช๐˜ง ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜บ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ฌ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜บ ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ข ๐˜ฏ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ค๐˜ช๐˜ด๐˜ด๐˜ช๐˜ด๐˜ต ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ช๐˜ณ ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ด๐˜ธ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ ๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ๐˜ด ๐˜ถ๐˜ฑ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ต๐˜ต๐˜บ ๐˜ธ๐˜ฆ๐˜ญ๐˜ญ ๐˜ธ๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜ฉ ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜บ. Thatโ€™s because they are proud of themselves. You can ask them directly because they donโ€™t see narcissism as a negative quality โ€” they believe they are superior to other people and are fine with saying that publicly.โฃ โฃ What many people donโ€™t realize is that true narcissism is a deep rooted defense mechanism against feelings of inferiority. โฃ โฃ The person portrays a mask of arrogant superiority in an attempt to convince everyone that they are a ๐˜ด๐˜ฑ๐˜ฆ๐˜ค๐˜ช๐˜ข๐˜ญ ๐˜ด๐˜ฏ๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ๐˜ง๐˜ญ๐˜ข๐˜ฌ๐˜ฆ, but, inside, the person feels very insecure about their self-worth.โฃ โฃ This makes the person hypersensitive to minor slights that someone with healthy narcissism would not even notice. โฃ โฃ Someone with an unhealthy level of narcissism is easily hurt by actions and words of others, takes any form of disagreement as a serious criticism to their self-worth, and responds by devaluing and abusing anyone with an opposing opinion. โฃ โฃ The term โ€œ๐˜ฏ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ค๐˜ช๐˜ด๐˜ด๐˜ช๐˜ด๐˜ตโ€ is exploited today. Itโ€™s thrown around and used to describe anyone who has confidence in their position or themselves. โฃ โฃ ๐—ช๐ž ๐š๐ฅ๐ฅ ๐ก๐š๐ฏ๐ž ๐š ๐ฅ๐ข๐ญ๐ญ๐ฅ๐ž ๐ง๐š๐ซ๐œ๐ข๐ฌ๐ฌ๐ข๐ฌ๐ฆ; ๐ข๐ญโ€™๐ฌ ๐ง๐จ๐ซ๐ฆ๐š๐ฅ; ๐ข๐ญโ€™๐ฌ ๐ก๐ž๐š๐ฅ๐ญ๐ก๐ฒ. Healthy narcissism is relatively impervious to the minor slights and setbacks that we all experience as we go through life. Normal narcissism causes us to love and care for ourselves. It helps us to do things that are in our genuine self-interest, and is associated with authentic self-respect. โฃ โฃ ๐“๐ก๐ž ๐ฌ๐ฎ๐ฆ๐ฆ๐š๐ซ๐ข๐ณ๐ž๐ ๐๐ข๐š๐ ๐ง๐จ๐ฌ๐ข๐ฌ ๐›๐ž๐ฅ๐จ๐ฐ ๐ข๐ฌ ๐œ๐จ๐ง๐ญ๐ซ๐จ๐ฏ๐ž๐ซ๐ฌ๐ข๐š๐ฅ ๐š๐ง๐ ๐ฎ๐ง๐๐ž๐ซ๐ ๐จ๐ข๐ง๐  ๐Ÿ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ญ๐ก๐ž๐ซ ๐œ๐ก๐š๐ง๐ ๐ž ๐›๐ฎ๐ญ ๐ข๐ง๐ญ๐ž๐ซ๐ž๐ฌ๐ญ๐ข๐ง๐  ๐ง๐จ๐ง๐ž๐ญ๐ก๐ž๐ฅ๐ž๐ฌ๐ฌ:โฃ โฃ Someone with narcissistic personality disorder is grandiose (sometimes only in fantasy), lacks empathy, and needs admiration from others, as indicated by five of these characteristics:โฃ
