Narcissism is a word that is used more then ever in relationship breakdown, and the alleged reason as to why so many families are fractured.
Although it feels as though it is a modern word in fact it goes back to Greek mythology when Narcissus fell in love wit his own reflection.
It has now become a personality disorder, and is a label that is given in many situations, and is now a considered to be a social and cultural problem.
A Narcissist believes they are perfect, they are shameless,and arrogant. They have no empathy with others they seem to believe that they have some sort of entitlement and woe betide anyone who questions them. Those that do are rejected and thought to be a difficult person. They will exploit others without considering the feelings of that person.
In other words they are always right, and those they target will always be wrong.
Narcissism is alive and well all over the internet.
Sites that encourage others to bad mouth family members and relations are rife.
Often the founder of such sites, are selling books, self-promoting and enticing people onboard with therapies that they carry out, at a cost. They pertain to be qualified and put all sorts of initials at the end of their name.
Anyone can do a course on how to deal with Narcissistic people, or anything else for that matter, they are then let lose to do untold damage.
The comments and responses that are shown are truly disgusting, not just because of the language used but the most dreadful of things that are said and encouraged, just one example says that killing their parents would be a positive thing to do.
I have no doubt that this is all done to inflict as much hurt and pain possible, most are open groups for all to see.
I have and always will say, that in some cases it is necessary to cut a family member out of lives for safeguarding reasons, but it is a very small number.
It feels as though, to persecute others is fair game.
How has society turned into this frenzy of hatred?
The label of Narcissism is used on both sides of the fence, adult children say it about their parents and some parents say it about their adult children.
Of course they will both fight tooth and nail because they both believe they are right.
So irrational behaviour continues, with no one communicating in a proper manner.
If you are on the receiving end of a Narcissists comments and posts it is devastating, it feels as though the whole world is reading these disgusting things about you, isolating you completely.
When friends and family have been alienated from you in this way, you feel totally isolated and often a prisoner in your own home, afraid to even go out.
Whatever you want to call it is still bullying, in the very worst of ways.
Many organisations are making money out of others grief, if you don’t get on, well thats one thing this is something totally different. One post brings the vultures in for the kill.
Narcissus may be Greek mythology but this is 2017 persecution.
