Narcissism Exposed

One person sees too many photos on FB and says..."narcissism". Another one sees the same photos and says...."an attempt to cover pain caused by self loathing". One person sees a photo and says..."indecent". Another sees the same photo and says..."a cover up for rejected love". One person sees a photo and says..."attention gimmick" another sees the photo and says...."the face of loneliness". God...bless the latter and give wisdom to the former!

    Having grown up with a narsacist I found this poem intriguing. Strangely he craved attention but was not interested in having friends. His outward facade of confidence hid a really sad person who craved love and was incapable of giving or receiving it. He did not give people the chance to uncover who he was. That was reserved for me my brother and sister and Mom.

    Oh. So sad to read this. Thanks for sharing. I get so frustrated with people who are judgmental. They love to label instead of trying to find out what is the root problem. Use a bit of psychology to find out why the person is acting that way. Though you can't change him/her, but at least understanding brings a new level of acceptance. Great to hear from you, Richard! :)
