    ...and it sucks. I am

    so envious of anyone who has any thing I want and sometimes things I don't really want but feel that I deserve more than they do. I can never be happy for someone else's good fortune unless it is for something I already obtained or that I feel is "beneath" me. I want to quit...

    Using early childhood trauma

    as an explanation for an ego-complex and a deviant s*xuality. I have memory of s*xual thoughts from a very young age, years before it was mentioned by anyone. This of course made my f*ntasies strange and impractical, but I didn't give it any second thought. As I grew older...

    Awareness Helps.

    I have sought therapy for it and it is not nearly as bad as it used to be, but I am aware of it, and contain it every day. Thankfully, it is controllable, it does not control me.  I can feel it pull on strings of jealousy, not getting what I want and secretly feel I deserve...

    I didn't notice until I started researching this

    for a uni paper, I mean people have pointed things out to me in the past. I lie, I have no qualms about cheating to get ahead, I don't think I have ever felt guilty about anything - my main fear comes from people realising I am not as good, nice, kind as I make myself out to be...

    My narcissism cuts through my being like a

    I find that some people are just pretend

    narcissists, it's pretty insulting to us legitimate narcissists and it insults the definition of the word.

    I have a history of narcissism,

    sociopathy, bipolar disorder,etc in my family. I have been accused of being a narcissist by mom though I have most of my father's traits who is very clearly a narcissist but I refuse to admit I am narcissistic/sociopathic. If I have not been diagnosed a narcissist.

    My ex said I was a narcissist like himself.

    I wasn't sure if it was true, but since I was at least 6, I thought I was better, more special and cleverer than most people so it made me feel superior. I lied a lot and made up a lot of stories. I am also self obsessed. I think my mum and stepfather are also narcissists, they...

    Randomly Thinking.

    My narcissism is a little different

    or maybe mild. I don't seek attention ever. The only attention I will ever need is mine. When I meet new people, I am so concentrated on telling them my name that I don't hear there name. At least my psychiatrist said I'm narcissistic.

    Does anyone here have narcissistic family

    members? I was born into a family that holds 4 narcissists (including myself) on my fathers side. I believe it's a genetic thing, although not every psychologist agrees. Looking at my family it must be genetic. It doesn't have any real upsides to have family members with this...

    I recently discovered I am a narcissist.

    Finally everything makes sense, and I sort of feel proud... But I also think I'm some sort of monster. I think I should only build relationships with other narcissists (or inverted narcissists) in order to not hurt anyone accidentally. Does anyone else feel this way?

    When I'm right, I'm right, no doubt. And when I'm wrong, I usually accept that I'm wrong. Am I a narcissist? So it seems. My father is the biggest narcissist I know, and according to my cousin on his side, it runs in his side of the family. It makes sense. My dad could never...
