Don't be a "spiritual" narcissist

Spiritual narcissists perceives themselves as having knowledge and insight that make them superior to others, are more "tuned in" to truths beyond what others can see, and may even view themselves as a "teacher" with so much to offer their uncritical acolytes, so long as they remain uncritical. — Read the rest

"... Biden might find a road map for national restoration, one that involves collective effort and a fostering of a collective American identity...."

Collective, collective.  I'm reading "Could Joe Biden Actually Bring America Back Together?" by Michael Luo (in The New Yorker). Excerpt: Twenty years ago, Robert D. Putnam, a Harvard political scientist, published "Bowling Alone," which documented how Americans had become increasingly disconnected from one another; how participation in social and community organizations, from bridge clubs to churches, had plummeted; and how norms of reciprocity, honesty, and trust had steadily declined across...

How to Figure Out If You're Dating a Narcissist

When Lisa* met Adam* in graduate school, she thought she’d hit the dating jackpot. “He was very wealthy, very charismatic, and at first he was very charming,” she says. “He was constantly showering me with gifts, fancy dinners, and romanic nights out. He was playing by this 1950s courtship rulebook.” But over time,…Read more...

"There is nothing like the energy and atmosphere of live music. It is the most life-affirming experience..."

"... to see your favorite performer onstage, in the flesh, rather than as a one-dimensional image glowing in your lap as you spiral down a midnight YouTube wormhole. Even our most beloved superheroes become human in person. Imagine being at Wembley Stadium in 1985 as Freddie Mercury walked onstage for the Live Aid benefit concert... It was Freddie's connection with the audience that transformed that dilapidated soccer stadium into a sonic cathedral. In broad daylight, he majestically made 72,000...

Should a Family Scapegoat Cut Off Contact?

From a woman in the U.S.: I was raised in a narcissistic family, with my widowed mother being the principle one. I have 4 siblings..most of them being single mothers. They all have hard lives, some of them now raising their grandchildren. I, myself, have been married 35 years, a successful career, and 4 grown children. There is a lot of jealousy going on, with a mob mentality. I have been shunned for 25 years. My mother says I “never show up to anything” unlike the others, but the fact is I am r...

"A student opposed a YA novel for mandatory college reading. The backlash from famous authors was fierce."

A WaPo article about a Northern State University student who opposed selecting a young-adult novel for the school's "common read." The student was quoted in a local newspaper, saying "definitely not up to the level of Common Read." The author, Sarah Dessen, noticed.WaPo says "It’s unclear how Dessen, who lives in North Carolina, spotted the article in South Dakota," but I presume Dessen has a Google alert on her own name. It's completely easy these days to keep track of whether you're ever ment...

Am I a Narcissist?

From a young woman in the U.K.: I have been in a relationship past three years with a person I thought was narcissist. I found it really hard to move out after he attacked me physically. I am now feeling the urge to have someone near me (dependency issues- obviously miss him a lot) I know that from the start he was amazing and such a gentleman and throughout the years I was bound with his rules I couldn’t go out or meet friends. He was very manipulative and created drama for no reason. In the la...

Dying for the Ultimate Selfie: We’re Really Bad at Accurately Assessing Risk

Selfies are the journaling of our time. We take them everywhere we go, not only to remind our future selves of things we’ve done, but to also broadcast to the world what a fun, exciting, and carefully-curated life we lead. But in a story that’s becoming as commonplace as school shootings in America, more and more people are either dying or putting themselves in extreme physical danger to take the ultimate selfie. And for what? Fame in the form of more likes and followers on social media. Why are...

Narcissistic Families: Growing Up in the War Zone

When you are raised in a narcissistic family it can feel like there is no help. Parents who are narcissistic are often self-focussed.  They will relate to their children as “self-adjuncts” serving to support them and their image of themselves. Do something that reflects well on them and you are suddenly the Golden Child.  Make a mistake, ask for help or express your vulnerability, and you are on your own or worse, ridiculed. Children in this situation learn quickly that their needs ...
