In fact, when you define narcissism, it is accepted that there is a sadistic element present. So, for many narcissists, being cruel and hurtful gives their ego a boost. To them it means they are in control of others, they are dominant and therefore superior. Dr. David Mc Dermott, What Is Narcissism? A practical guide to protecting yourself.
A narcissist paints a picture of themselves as being the victim or innocent in all aspects. They will be offended by the truth. But what is done in the dark will come to light. After all, time has a mind of its own!
“And once the storm is over you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, in fact, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.” -Haruki Murakami

What is narcissism? Dr. David McDermott: People with narcissistic personality disorder are actually using mind control and brainwashing techniques to control those around them into giving them what they want.
They will often attack and belittle the person who is being critical, instead of dealing with the points the person is making. They do this usually because they have no defense against the criticism, they have been found out. So it's easier to destroy the reputation of the critical person instead." — Dr. David McDermott, What Is Narcissism? A practical guide to protecting yourself.

Oh how I wish more people understood this. So much arguing and hurt feelings would be eliminated if people would just realize that they don't have to understand why the other person is hurt, they just need to understand THAT the person is hurt and do what they can to help fix whatever they did to hurt the person.
#narcissists play dumb ... like posting, "go ahead, judge me, just remember to be perfect for the rest of your life (like living in one man's house, having a one-night stand with another, moving forward to date a third, all to fall back on option two is ever considered "perfect")
Some ppl like to be right even if they are dead ass wrong. Even after the proof have been giving. I like to be corrected: THAT'S THE ONLY WAY YOU LEARN ANYTHING ON ANY LEVEL .. NO ONE IS RIGHT ALL THE TIME .. BECAUSE THEY WILL HAVE IT ASSUMED THAT YOU ARE PERFECT.. WHO IS THAT? I WOULD LOVE TO MEET THEM .. LOL :)
Its the truth, she thinks its love & he doesn't even know what love is.
