Have you or your loved ones ever been personally victimized by a person who always had to be the victim in a situation? I mean no matter how things were going and what could be going wrong, YOU were always at fault.. even if YOU were expressing how you had been wronged?
Well you my friend, have been a victim of the trap of a classic narcissist.
Back in the day, I used to stay up way in the late hours to watch one of my favorite shows, TCAP, To Catch a Predator, for the slow ones. And Basically Chris Hansen and his team of decoy police officer units would scour the interwebs and chat lines to have conversations with older people disguising themselves as underage girls or boys and inviting them to a home to be "caught". And honestly, I tuned into TCAP every single week, to watch a bunch of creeps explain why they showed up with a case of wine coolers to meet a 12 year old right before they were trapped in a police sting and sent to jail. The were classic liars.. typically saying they were just showing up to see if it was real, and that they weren't going to do anything, classic ways of not taking responsibility for their actions... can you see where I'm headed here?
I can guarantee you right now, that one of my favorite narcissists is reading this RIGHT NOW, line for line, waiting to be mentioned or referenced in some form of fashion. Sorry, you can x out here, it's not going to happen. What is going to happen is this..
Many people miss out or are incapable of acknowledging or recognizing some classic signs of a narcissist. Here are just a few:
1. Strong sense of entitlement (especially over others)
2. Lack of empathy towards others (often find ways to return a situation BACK to being about them)
3. Excessive urge to be adored
4. Looks down on others as if they are inferior
Do any of these sound familiar? If so, seek assistance because getting out of the web of SHIT spun by a narcissist can be difficult. You have to be strong, determined and stay focused on YOURSELF, because as you read above, it can easily become a blame game and you can quickly lose sight of what's important. And if you read this and see that maybe it is in fact you that is a narcissist... seek help. QUICK.
