Something at least one other person has told me is how they prefer reading people, versus face-to-face interaction.
You will find a lot of the type of narcissist I have become in nursing homes.
Both have beliefs of themselves that they would never behave this way and have conveniently forgotten.
The only problem now is …….
For example, if I am trying to speak to her, she will tell me she is watching a drama or watching soccer etc.
I need more reciprocity in my life now.
You gotta lay the foot down.
In the first type, they know on some level thateir parents must be idealizing them, they know that this wonderful vision of themselves is a lie.
I am now separated with my husband of 3 years because of his highly narcissistic tendencies.
I am sitting here reading the notes of a facility I was just booted from that states the family is totally uninvolved except financially.
At first i found this charming and indicative of his sensitive nature, and still do somewhat, but it also bothers me.
Because I can easily become enrage even with past memories, things or people that upsets or hurts me or disappoints me etc.
I was told by my shrink I am abnormally attached to a family with an abnormal detachment for me.
You are right, Joseph, about steering clear of discussions on religion and politics.
I would prefer she talks to me while I am with her, instead of through text.
