Who is a Narcissist?

A narcissist is a person who has an inflated sense of their own importance and a deep need for admiration. They often seem self-absorbed, but it’s not because they don’t care about other people. It’s because they care too much about themselves.

A narcissist is a person with a personality disorder characterised by an inflated sense of their own importance, an intense need for admiration and a lack of empathy for others. Their extreme self-centeredness leads to them being unable to feel any concern about other people’s feelings.

Conclusion

There is no cure for narcissism, it takes a while before they realise themselves. The people who suffer from it will always believe they are better than everyone else and refuse to change their behaviour, but that doesn’t mean you have to take it.

If someone makes you feel bad about yourself, don’t take it personally. Instead, try something productive like taking a walk or participating in a physical activity, anything that gets your mind off of them long enough to recharge.

A narcissist won’t appreciate your efforts; so don’t bother trying to make them see reason, because they don’t have any. It’s time for you to see reason and get on with your life! You can do it!
