Well, the formation of positive things have been over and it’s time to explain the other phase.
Our first topic is Narcissism. A very popular term on WordPress. I think you have read a lot about Narcissism. So let me know first in the comments that how do you define the Narcissism?
As I told in my earlier posts that I still struggle with Narcissism but it has been improved a lot and yet to be improved more. So I will share here my own experience with Narcissism and try to figure you out that what empowers it!?……
Narcissism is something which is already present in every human. It then develops with time and life experiences. A little child has also some feelings of Narcissism because he observes the things around him very sharply and the Narcissism is everywhere in the present world. Every single person is a Narcissist. Although, it doesn’t mean that the whole people are bad and can’t control the Narcissism. It can be controlled, but with strong willpower and without actually harming your mentality.
Narcissism is a thing which develops from Self-love which turned astray from the right direction. In Self-love, you admire yourself. Read the line carefully, “you ADMIRE yourself.” You admire your every work. You praise and love your actions and from this admiring and praising, two things occur: True Self-love & Narcissism.
Yes, this is the evil face of praise. You praise yourself, it’s good. You feel good and positive for yourself. But it quickly turns into a curse if you haven’t a superior control on your mind and thoughts. This is obvious when some other person appreciates your work, it feels really good. It’s an awesome feeling. But it can trap you in its love and when you fall in love with this feeling, It raises Narcissism. You want this everytime now. You want people to praise for your every single work. You can’t hear any criticism about yourself which makes you weak. It’s like a coconut. Hard from outside, hollow from inside. And when someone hit this with enough power, it completely bruises your Ego. This is what is called…A mental Trauma.
Narcissism is not entirely related with only downside of Self-love. Doing a good deed and taking pride in it that you actually did that also raises Narcissism. Fake show-off to the people that you’re really a kind-hearted empowers it more. If you do any work with the intention to get the reward for your hard work and luckily you achieve that reward, it also reinforces the Narcissism multiple times.
When you are in Narcissism, two things most often happen to you:
One – When you hear Praise for your work from people, your every single bone feel like it’s the only one in the Universe.
Two – When you hear Criticism, your every single bone will burn in anger and frustration.
These are two main symptoms that you’re a Narcissist person. A few thousand out of millions can actually become aware of these and a handful can actually do efforts to fight with them.
I think I kept it very short but might be useful to you. So let me know your views on this post. I’m willing to interact. 🙂
Have a wonderful day ❤
