I'm A Covert Narcissist
I am a narcissist as well. My narcissism may have resulted from my upbringing being the oldest and the only male in my family, and having a mother who showered me with compliments and praise whenever she had the chance to... This was compounded by an overbearing and terribly unappreciative father, whose behavior towards my every move and every inclination pushed my narcissism onward and upward in order to compensate for the lack of fatherly appreciation.. maybe that's it.. maybe not.. All I know for sure is that I think I'm a lot better than any of my peers. Sometimes it shows and sometimes it doesn't but in my writings it is pretty damn obvious.
