Happy Labor Day
Narcissists don't know what they're missing.
They think it feels good to tell people they're defective. They don't know the tremendous gratification in telling people the opposite - that they're good people, that they did something right, that they did something well, that they have a certain admirable personal quality, that they didn't deserve the abuse they got from some pathetic creep who has to tear others down to feel good about him- or her-self, that they didn't do wrong (even if the whole brain-dead world parrots the idiocy that self defense and even hurt feelings of anger and sadness are sins), and that they reacted to torment the way any normal person does.
Jeez, that's nothing but the plain truth, but when you do it you are amazed at the power of the stroke. It brings great and infectious joy to them!
Talk about being "effective." Who wouldn't want to do that? Plus, it warms one all the way through.
And what does it cost you?
You see, comfort is a kind of love: you get it by giving it away. No narcissist ever learned that.
The poor blokes. No wonder they're so miserable they want everyone else to be.
Another thing they never learn is how to be team players. So, they never experience the fulfillment in being something greater than the sum of its parts.
They don't know what they're missing.
