    After following your advice of polite response, my narc sent me a pic of his child… wtf..

    He told me liked the way she was looking at him (wth send it to me??) Now been 10 days since i let that conversation end…

    Getting easier every day..

    Poor little ones…

  2. Thanks to HG for the articles,
    To K for posting them,
    And to Becky for requesting them.

    There’s a lot of good information.


    Maybe a collection of Little Acons as a ‘how not to’ book.
    Yep, I’m still stuck on the ebook idea. So many here are parents and are usually dealing with more narcissist than the one that is the other parent of their child.
    And it would be on amazon, so it gets wide exposure.
    Maybe even 10 million hits by valentines day. (tiny nudge)

      Noted, thank you.

    2. K says:

      My pleasure, persephoneascending1.

    The children’s heads (faces) as so pretty.

  4. The picture to this one reminds me of Miss Peregrines Home For Peculiar Children.
    I would suppose being the child of a narc is peculiar enough.

  5. HG,
    I am curious about whether or not you intend to procreate, (I believe you currently have no offspring.) If that is too personal, I would understand you don’t wish to answer.
    Would it be possible within this project to write about how to make (or better, not make) narcissists of children? Like a guide for parents to not continue the cycle of narcissism they learn in their family of origin?
    Or have you already written such a guide?

    1. HG Tudor says:

      I have no offspring that is correct, I have no interest in children.

      There would be no point – the reader would not know they are a narcissist and therefore not see it as applicable to their treatment of the child.

      1. Becky says:

        Can you write an article on why narcissists have children? Do they not realize until it’s too late it wasn’t what they thought it’d be?

        1. HG Tudor says:

          Already done.

          1. Becky says:

            Oh, my apologies, can you direct me to it?

          2. HG Tudor says:

            See K’s answer.

          3. K says:

            My pleasure, HG. I do enjoy helping out and, as an added benefit, I am able to embed the knowledge that I learn here.

          1. HG Tudor says:

            Saved me linking them, thanks.

          2. Becky says:

            Thank you!

          3. K says:

            You are welcome, Becky.

  6. Nina says:

    Is the reason we are romantically entangled with narcissists that we were raised by narcissist parents? Thank you so much HG, your blog and books are immensely helpful. Is that really your voice in the videos?

    1. HG Tudor says:

      For some of you yes, for others no. Narcissists sometimes target other narcissists and normals, but usually we target empathic individuals. Those people who are empathic make the best targets for many reasons. Those people who are empathic and “imprinted” (prior involvement with a narcissist, especially during childhood) make the best targets.

      1. Bubbles says:

        Dear Mr Tudor,
        Your last senctence …. could you please elaborate why do they make the best targets ?
        Many thanks

        1. HG Tudor says:

          Please see ‘Sitting Target’.

    2. K says:

      I thought his voice was treated, however, that is HG’s real voice in the videos. His voice reminds me of Darth Vader.

  7. Candice says:

    This could Ben read “little mirrors nothing more” AND “little nothing mirrors more” both of which are horrifying.

  8. Catherine says:

    Scarily true.

  9. Noname says:

    That’s truth. Sad Narcparent’s truth.

    All recent pictures for “Narcissistic truth” is very good. Art.

  10. Windstorm2 says:

    Depressing but accurate.
    On a positive note – Congrats on 7 million!

    1. HG Tudor says:

      Thank you.

  11. Becky says:

    Do narcissists consciously have children for this reason?

    1. HG Tudor says:

      Not consciously, no.
