Narcissist

Narcissist

 

None of it was meant for me, or us or them

now was it …………………………………………………

Every single little thing was meant for you

entirely   …………………………………………………….

You tireless, self-absorbed little madam you

so don’t even bother to try and read between

these lines ………………………………………………….

There is nothing here you don’t think you

know already ……………………………………………..

    Narcissists are very self absorbed .... they think everything is about them . Sometimes we give to people who cannot give much in return .

        • orchidee

          But have I already met her, oh woe! I mean, I've married KP. She was on TV in an Awards Ceremony. She just couldn't help playing to the cameras. Or was she waving at me, her hubby?! lol. She won an Award for Best Old Trout. I'm cruel. lol.
          Dunno why I watched all of 10 minutes of it. It said 'Entertainment'. I said 'Where?'

          Sometimes a strong message such as this commendable verse contains is sometimes the means to make narcissists take a deeper look at themselves - a gurt and mighty forceful reminder Nev. - - hope it worked if it was written from experience mon ami..........x

            Have known "a few" people in the past,who refused to see the other person's point of view,and were "inflated" by their own ego.It is of course an illness.
            A thought provoking read from you today Neville.

            • yellowrose

              So have I ... difficult to deal with . But you are right ... it is a mental illness .

              • Neville



                with respect, in the strictest of terms it is a personality disorder ... but I get your drift my friend ... thank you ....................................................................................... n truly Neville 🙂

                    I think we have all met people such as this. But at least we can choose who our friends are. Give narcissists a wide berth, I say!

                    • Neville


                      Wide births R distinctly us from now on .................................................................... cheers Robert

                      LOL we used to call it 'lead guitarist syndrome' in the group musicians enclave of society (lol). Though a couple of lady singers i knew easily fitted the bill.

                      • Neville



                        its a small world innit .......................... thanks DA for just being there and for everything else .. N 🙂

                        Oh yes Nev, they exist - both genders. And ofttimes the male version is the more dangerous, as he tends to have more power and influence.

                        However, in general, narcissists are quite amusing to watch - from a distance (as much distance as possible).

                          cheers DD ............................................................................... N 🙂

                          One of my friends has just managed to escape from a Narcissist after twenty five years of trauma.
