Hello and welcome.
If you have happened upon my website and are wondering if someone in your life is a malignant narcissist or not, I have found a website that describes it very well. Below is a link to an article from Out of the Fog.net that is entitled, “What’s It Feels Like To Live With Someone With NPD (Narcissistic Personality Disorder)”. You have to scroll down a bit to find it after you go to the link. I hope you find it to be helpful, and informative:
I believe here is a percentage of souls on this planet that are existing “for themselves” and are not able to experience or give love to others– these include people with narcissistic personality disorder known as malignant narcissists, sociopaths, and psychopaths. I believe these people are disconnected completely from their true essence and light due to atrocities and abuse so severe that they have had to “check out” and the dark beliefs they were forced to accept are now running their lives due to their own free will. They do not want to be fixed, healed, or change so do not waste your precious energy trying to fix them, heal them, or take care of them. They often are like energy vampires and they insidiously try to put out your “lights” and diminish your belief in your gifts. You do not have to be around anyone who makes you feel bad or zaps your energy or light even if it is a parent or family member.
I hope my blog community offers you a safe refuge if you are healing from childhood wounds from narcissistic abuse.
Sending you comfort, encouragement and my deepest compassion,
