Will Delilah open her heart to the twin dragons and accept the second chance that the Goddess has given them before time runs out for all of them? Holding onto the handrail with one hand and her trusty shovel with the other, she climbed the steps and crossed the front porch which had snow all the way to the door.
She pulled the screen door open and gripped the doorknob before she remembered that it was locked.
She was about to pull her hand away when she heard the slight click and the door moved inward. How do you think Alien Lunatic 1 and 2 got in, Delilah?

The ability to appear to be "normal" in front of the rest of society is the perfect way for a narcissist or controlling person to hide their dysfunction, but still be able to act narcissistic or controlling when they want to.
Besides, people who are not family members are free to walk away at any time - family members are not. Thus, they make the best victims. Also, the fact that the narcissist or controlling person appears "normal" the rest of the time makes it even harder for society to believe their victim s.
Why was I sent here?
This means that by picking only on close family and friends, a narcissist or controlling person has an endless source of victims who will never be believed. In other words, an endless supply of victims who cannot escape the narcissist or controlling person because: a.
They are family relations and maybe have to live together or see each other often b. The narcissist or controlling person appears to be so "nice" outside the family that nobody believes or wants to help the victimized family member c. Everything is happening in private behind closed doors, so the victim is placed in an awkward situation where there are few or no witnesses d.
Because there are few or no witnesses, the whole situation boils down to the victim's word against the word of the narcissist or controlling person e. The narcissist or controlling antisocial person loves all this, because it is the sort of tit-for-tat, sneaky situation that they deliberately intended to orchestrate in the first place. They love the drama, the chaos, the subterfuge, the lies, and the inability of the victim to escape. Because THIS is just how the narcissist or controlling person wanted it in the first place.
How do I come to write this? Try living with a narcissist and controlling personality. That is so true. My wife's mother is a rather extreme narcissist, and the damage it's done to her won't go away, despite therapy. She was neglected so badly emotionally and even physically. Children can't recover fully from that kind of treatment. The proper answer is yes.
A narcissist can be justly proud of a great accomplishment, just like anyone else. Even if a narcissist achieves something that is beneficial to the community, this person should not become a spouse or parent child of narcissist talking here. Berman has a point. Are people narcissists if they show that trait only in reference to some area of genius, like playing the violin or doing quantum physics?
Sounds like Dr. McBride is saying that the narcissists are all-around braggers. Plenty of research shows that they do feel superior and entitled. Their reality is that they really are better than other people.
Only the subtype of the compensatory narcissist is counteracting feelings of inferiority. Yes, I agree -- they do feel genuinely entitled. I had a supposed friend I suddenly realize was severely narcissistic because of this article. She was fascinating and vivid, but made life hell for the staff of every store or restaurant she went to -- she made heavy demands and raised a storm if she didn't get whatever she wanted. She was driven crazy by the election, since people in this rural county did not obey her lefty leanings, and pounced on a group of knitters in a yarn store discussing political correctness and how some people even say you can't say the word "oriental.
She walked out and has not been seen since! It is about manners and respecting others. If Asians do not want to be called "Oriental," then one does not call them that.
May we have a moment of your time?
Unless one is a mannerless jerk who uses the bogus excuse "political correctness" to continue to be a mannerless jerk. If your name were John, but others insisted on calling you Frank, would you be required to tolerate it out of fear of being seen as being "politically correct"? That term is better spelled, and in fewer letters, "bigot". It is a refusal to be other than rude, and worse, in the name of "free speech". We also have the right to empty our bowels; but we don't do it on our neighbor's living room rug, then accuse the neighbor of being "politically correct" for objecting to it.
Whereas it's clear that narcissistic folks can cause a lot of damage to those around them, I feel very uneasy about the amount of fearmongering about them, especially on this site. There's a lot of material about how terrible these people are, but little constructive advice on strategies for managing the impact of narcissistic behaviours and traits in relationships, the workplace etc. We risk demonising and dehumanising a whole group of people as the 'Threatening Other', when I think it would be better to discuss more constructive ways of addressing their impact.
I'm not convinced that there are constructive ways of addressing their impact. As someone with a few narcissists in the family, I'm all for demonising and dehumanising them. People who lack empathy are cancerous to everyone around them.
Backstage With Destiny's Child
I agree -- can't fix them, so identify narcissists and then avoid them. The woman I referred to elsewhere here was so damaging that I realize we were all lucky she stormed out of the groups. She monopolized every meeting with non-stop repetitive complaints against everyone who offended her pretty much everyone , especially antiques like her mother, her ex-husband, same ones on and on for decades.
She wanted frequent meetings with me to praise her and justify her dreadful aggressive behavior with yarn stores, restaurants, group members, police, everyone. It was exhausting and pointless and of course she ended up controlling me. I'm not doing this anymore. I see a narcissist, I keep my distance. Which probably has much to do with why a person is a narcissist to begin with: being denied empathy. One of the problems with managing the impact of a narcissist is identifying them.
If an individual has a substance abuse problem or an anger management problem it's clear whose behaviour needs addressing. If your difficult person is a narcissist, you might be up to your neck in the consequences of their behaviour while supporting them for managing the situation so well. They don't have "Narcissist" written on their forehead, and they are often high functioning.
How will you address their impact if you don't understand its source? I've already posted similar comments twice asking the same exact thing. Can we help narcissists?
Can we prevent becoming one? The fact that the majority of these comments ignore everyone else's makes the authors seem hypocritically narcissistic.
