My mother used to call me her ray of sunshine. As I got older, I asked her if she called me this because I brightened up her life. She told me, “No, it is because you are brighter than anyone else.”  I cannot disagree with her. Years later, Becky (an ex girlfriend) told me that I thought I was the sun. I remembered what my mother had said but I had learned that Becky did like to compliment me so I stopped myself from saying my mother’s words and asked Becky if she described me as such because I lit up her life. She shook her head and replied,

“It is because everything has to revolve around you.”

I took issue with her comment. It is not the case that everything has to revolve around me, it just does. I think that is because of my innate magnetism. People enjoy being around me. I enjoy people being around me. I revel in their adoration. It is only right and proper that they recognise my brilliance and in so doing want to be near me, with me and praising me. I mean, who does not like to be praised? We all do don’t we? Nothing wrong in that. I think that because I get so much of it I find it addictive and I want more. I want people to admire and adore me. I know they should, but that doesn’t always mean they will. Of course, if they don’t I won’t waste my energy on them, there are much more deserving targets for my largesse. I heard someone say that you only get out what you put in. I agree ; I put people at the centre of my sights and they adore me in return. Perhaps if more people did this the world would be full of adoration and be a better place.

    I see a lot of truths in this. Narcissists especially greaters are masters of human psychology and know how to get people to please and adore them. Those that see thru their facade and dont comply quickly get smeared and the narcissist considers an enemy. Thats been my issue with narcissists is that ive seen thru them and have a hard time hiding my feelings and its gotten me into conflict especially with my mother. Ive since learned how to better coexist and understand those with npd. Its not been easy but its a necessity especially seeing the world is becoming more and more narcissistic sadly. Hsp or empaths are becoming the minority.
    Do i adore narcissists yes and no. I may adore certain qualities but as a moral compass no it doesnt fit my values and perspective but i can learn to try my best to coexist. That being said if i feel being around one is toxic and affecting me i will limit my time or if possible not be around them at all. The reality is that narcissists are everywhere and you cant always be no contact so understanding npd helps tremendously and gives us a huge advantage!

  3. FR – Ah, Wendy O Williams of Plasmatics fame! One of my personal faves.

    Tuesday morning, New York Times
    You passed away, you lost your mind
    We all try to play the game
    We all wanna taste the pain
    We’d sell our souls if the price is right

    No worries, @Bethany7337. 🙂 I meant I must have been dabbling with a Greater Narcissist who possesses similar skills as HG has described.

  5. bethany7337 says:

    Hope, you shouldn’t have said that!😀

  6. Hope says:

    My N. lit up my world with passion and fireworks. He shone as bright as the sun, also. I adored him, and thought he was as brilliant as you are, HG.

    Your kind definitely brings out the best in us.
    Such a shame it’s not enough for you… 🙁

        1. TheFlowerandRock says:

          I don’t understand what you are saying Nikita…I would like to. Can you explain?

          1. nikitalondon says:

            Its covert abuse F&R. 😂😂😂 You continue with the same tone of condemning someone for eating sweets food making him feel its something wrong .. 😂😂😂😂

          2. TheFlowerandRock says:

            Oh Nikita bless your heart. It was a literal statement. Now you know

          3. nikitalondon says:

            All what chips away the selfsteem or the self security of a person is abuse.
            I remember once somebody here calling me an addict and I had said or done really nothing to this person..
            It was also in a very covert way but this is worse as when they tell you directly.

          4. TheFlowerandRock says:

            Yes Nikita, I agree with what you say , which is why we must first give to ourselves in such a way that there is no need to take away from others.

          5. TheFlowerandRock says:

            and my personal motto is, if you want it, eat it

          6. nikitalondon says:

            exactly. Everybody has the eright to live and peace and enjoy life like he or she pleases. ( HAHAH peace and love )

          7. TheFlowerandRock says:

            Yes, however we do not have the right to live in a way that is harmful to others.

          8. nikitalondon says:

            Sure thats what I meant. Leave the others in peace.
            ” Live and let the others live”
