    Wow- this is so related to a blog post I wrote today it’s almost unreal. I relate 100%. But I don’t think you were ever a narcissist xxx

    Thanks for this post – love the humility it took to admit this. Though I’m not sure you were ever an actual narcissist Lenora… I’m just not sure that copying the behaviours of parents (people who we’re suppose to look up to) means you’re a true narcissist. If you were one, then I was too.

      Thank you. In a way, I’m grateful for my time as a narc or pseudo-narc. It gave me an insight into the torturous pain they feel and why they respond so dramatically to criticism.

    Sounds more like borderline personality disorder than NPD.
