did you know that daffodils are narcissus flowers?
Narcissism is a coping strategy for when one has been wounded in profound ways. Anyone who makes it in this world has to find some sort of narcissism in order to heal. What gets called malignant narcissism is only one manifestation. Survival demands narcissism.
When narcissism is inverted people like to call themselves empaths. It’s a passive but equally imbalanced form of narcissism. In that instance people project their despair outward and call others they cannot control narcissists…We’re one big mess of a family. Yup.
It’s a mistake to imagine that anyone who is getting called narcissist at any given time doesn’t care about others…everyone wants to love and to be loved…narcissism can also include healthy self love and when we love we love everyone and everything. Humans have it all, always
Everyone wants to be called out. Unless it’s done with great compassion it simply doesn’t work. When we see clearly then we can speak the BS clearly and when we do that we can watch people melt into pussycats before us. Everyone wants love and everyone wants to be seen.
