narcissism-narcissist-npd

narcissistic man, narcissist, narcissimPoor Narcissus. The gods sentenced him to a life without human love. He fell in love with his own reflection in pool of water and died hungering for its response. Narcissism was named for him. Like Narcissus, narcissists only love themselves as reflected in the eyes of others. It’s a common misconception that they love themselves. They actually dislike themselves immensely. Their inflated self-...

“Nevertheless, narcissists cannot see that their partner is giving them the love that they desire, while their partner cannot see that the narcissist is incapable of giving the love they, too, desire. They’re both stuck playing out a drama from their childhoods. See “The Dance of Intimacy.”
Darlene Lancer, Dealing with a Narcissist: 8 Steps to Raise Self-Esteem and Set Boundaries with Difficult People

“Anyone whose goal is 'something higher' must expect someday to suffer vertigo. What is vertigo? Fear of falling? No, Vertigo is something other than fear of falling. It is the voice of the emptiness below us which tempts and lures us, it is the desire to fall, against which, terrified, we defend ourselves.”
Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being

“A 'no' does not hide anything, but a 'yes' very easily becomes a deception.”
Soren Kierkegaard

“Far from idleness being the root of all evil, it is rather the only true good.”
Soren Kierkegaard

“Every one is worthy of love, except him who thinks that he is. Love is a
sacrament that should be taken kneeling.”
Oscar Wilde, De Profundis
