You Should


What is the prevailing mind-set of the Mid Range Narcissist? What is going through the mind of the member of the largest school of narcissism when an appliance has been treacherous and disloyal? Does he manifest the malice that is exhibited by the Greater school or is his response different? What is he thinking when there is treason committed in the Kingdom of Mid-Range? Whether the appliance has escaped him, exposed him, challenged him or some other capital crime against the nation-state of narcissism, the Mid-Ranger’s mind goes into overdrive. This is a glimpse inside to understand what he or she believes.

You should not have done that to me. You should be thankful for who I am. You should be giving thanks to whichever god you follow that you have someone like me in your life, someone who cares, someone who is considerate, someone who only wants the best for you. You should be ashamed of the way you have treated me. You should apologise this instant. You should say sorry to me for the way you have behaved. You should treat others the way you want to be treated and not going around behaving like you are something special. You should realise I am something special and you keep treating me terribly. You should understand that I am a good, honest and decent person and not everybody would put up with your hysterical outbursts. You should know how hard it is to love somebody like you, but I do. You should be grateful for that.

You should know who you are messing with. You should be wary of getting on the wrong side of me you know. You should make sure you keep me happy because you will not like me when I am not happy. You should be looking out for me and not gadding around after other people. You should learn what your priorities are. You should spend more time with me. You should know when to leave me alone. You should be here and doing what I want. You should try giving for once rather than doing all of this taking.

You should be more aware of the way that you treat people and especially me. You should think more about how your actions impact on me. You should take my feelings into account and stop being so selfish. You should realise just what you do hurts me. You should understand that the things you say and do to me have consequences. You should stop making it all about you and let me have a say from time to time. You should stop being so obsessed with your friends’ lives and think about our lives together. You should spend less time with your family, they do not appreciate you in the way I do.

You should stop telling lies about me. You should get your own house in order before you start telling me how I should lead my life. You shouldn’t live in a glass house you know and throw stones. You should stop being such a nasty person to someone who has only ever been good to you. You should stop smearing my name to other people. You should take a look in the mirror. You should take a good look in the mirror actually.

You should stop putting me down. You should do what I want for a change. You should come back and apologise, I am a reasonable person and you should recognise that. You should make things right again because after all this is all your fault. You should stop fighting with me, I do not know why you have to do this. You should stop trying to tie me in knots. You should be more considerate. You should think about me more. You should sort this mess out because you are the only one who has caused it.

You should see how hard I have been trying for us. You should recognise a good person when you see one. You should know I have made the changes you demanded but you should be making some of your own as well. You should realise just how much I have tried for you and me.

You should know what other people say about you. You should realise that I put up with people saying bad things about you and you should be grateful I defend you to them, but I won’t keep doing it forever. You should realise you are not as popular as you think you are. You should be aware that I am a popular person and you won’t come out of this looking good at all.

You shouldn’t treat me like this. You shouldn’t destroy what I have built. You should recognise a good person, an honest person, a truthful person like me. You should learn just what you have lost by behaving like this. You should see just how many people hold me in high regard. You should be so happy to have someone like me, someone who people think well of and they do, just ask anybody and they will tell you. You should take the time to realise that I am a good person and consider what you are doing to me, to us, to what we have.

You should stop hurting me. You should stop getting a kick out of this horrible treatment of me. You should stop being mean to someone who loves you. You should help me. You should love me more. You should show me that you mean it. You should stop with the pretence. You should be genuine like me. You should stop playing the games. You should be the person that would make your grandmother proud. You should be the best person you can be for me.

You should get some help. You should see someone. You should go to therapy. You should sort these problems out. You should stop blaming me. You should stop projecting your problems and insecurities on to me. You should stop the game-playing, I am cleverer than you so I see straight through it. You should tell the truth for once You should stop making up stories about me. You should reflect on what you do. You should get some insight into what you are actually doing. You should shut up and listen to me for once. You should go and see the doctor. You should take your medication. You should stop being such a borderline. You should stop being such an attention-seeker. You should stop dodging the issue. You should address your issues.

You should let me speak. You should give me a chance to make things right again. You should come back because you owe me. You should let me show you what I can do. You should understand sometimes I don’t know what comes over me. You should make allowances for my behaviour because you are worse. You should not focus on the handful of supposedly bad things I do when I do way more good things. You should listen to why I do those things because if you did you would realise there is always a very good reason behind it. You should understand I have to disappear once in a while because your behaviour becomes too much. You should understand I am not sulking, I am just being quiet. You should accept I have to tell people about the way you behave because otherwise I would go mental. You should think about the names I call you and realise I am actually trying to help you because otherwise you will not listen. You should stop trying to blame me for everything that goes wrong and instead be grateful for what I do for you.

You should give it a rest now because you are giving me a headache. You should go and let me rest because I have been working hard all day. You should rub my back. You should make me something to eat. You should be there when I come home. You should stay out of my way when I am fed up of you. You should ask me how I am and not keep telling me about what you want. You should stop telling me how I should behave. You should see what I have to deal with. You should try being me. You should understand how much pain I am in from my back and not complain about your own supposed ailments. You should show some consideration for me now and again. You should get off your high horse. You should give it a rest. You should try walking in my shoes. You should try being me for a day. You should look at it from my point of view. You should make allowances. You should be more tolerant.

You should do it because you want to. You should do it for us. You should have more faith. You should have more discipline. You should have more resolve. You should let me in. You should keep out. You should learn when to speak. You should learn when to stay quiet. You should be seen and not heard. You should follow me. You should watch what I do . You should learn from an expert. You should stick with me. You should be mine. You should stay away from him. You should not speak to them. You should know what is best for you. You should know home is where the heart is. You should know where you bread is buttered. You should know how lucky you are to have me.

You should come back.

You should because I say so.

You just should.

    I recently have selected the time, place, and item for my revenge. When I feel emotion rise, I hear HG’s voice, “Patience.”

    1. Asp Emp says:

      BC30, brilliant comment…… I am laughing and curious to know the outcome if you would care to share the results? Yes, patience is a virtue….. (me, looking around with an ‘erm’ in mind).

      1. BC30 says:

        Will do!

        1. Asp Emp says:

          Oh, great! Thanks!

    2. A Victor says:

      I’m a bit scared to even ask about this…very curious though!

      1. BC30 says:

        Hahaha you sound like you know me 🍞😆

        1. A Victor says:

          Haha, we show ourselves even here! 🙂

      Asp Emp, AV — at first, I was rebellious and didn’t want to listen to HG about calming my ET and that I needed to allow time to pass. Many times he said most people go NC for six months, then no longer feel a desire for revenge. I wrongly considered that a direct challenge to my character. Now, I understand.

      Although, it’s been well over six months, I still have the desire. However, the time is not yet ripe. It’s going to be quite a bit longer. I realized some time ago that my initial plans were coming from a place rooted in ET and were not going to work. I decided to let it go, jettison those thoughts, and not worry about the Plan anymore.

      However, I was listening to one of HG’s fairy tales when the Plan came to sudden fruition!

      They have deep, dark fears too, and sometimes, they share them with us. Shouldn’t have done that. tsk tsk

      1. Asp Emp says:

        BC30, I am not surprised to read what you wrote in your first paragraph….. I can totally relate to that 😉

        Oh, dear….. it was one of HG’s fairy tales?! (let’s ruffle his feathers a bit, shall we? – fairy tales – I am laughing…… sorry HG). Tsk, tsk Asp Emp.

        Yes, there are still some ‘trigger points’ within us all, yet it depends on how we react to it and what we do. Some ‘trigger points’ can turn out some really good ideas……. (positive & constructive)……

        So you have Plan now? Tsk, tsk, BC30.

      2. A Victor says:

        Hahaha, BC30, I’m actually a tiny bit scared for your ex! This sounds devious! Well, if you can share the results at some point, I’m sure that would be a story I’d love to hear. But, totally understand if that would not be possible. Thank you for filling in the curiosity a bit, I will be able to sleep now! Have fun!! 🙂

    This meme got me cracking up 🤣 laughing. I’ve heard several of these phrases but I’ve used a few too… should’ve, would’ve, could’ve but I didn’t 😝H.G. Good meme, describes them to perfectly 😅

  3. A Victor says:

    It would be awesome if all mid-rangers walked around with this expression on their faces.

    1. BC30 says:

      Wouldn’t it tho? Fucking cry babies.

      1. A Victor says:

        Hahaha! Yes! Thank you for the giggle!
