Simply having some narcissistic behaviors isn’t sufficient for a full diagnosis of Narcissistic Personality Disorder – or NPD. Although NPD presently continues to be a grey area, one thing is generally agreed upon: it starts from childhood. Initial development was likely normal, but through a pattern of abuses, probably from parents, they end up hating and rejecting themselves to the point where they have no sense of self and create a mask to substitute. Are you currently dating a narcissist? Do you perhaps identify as a narcissist and would like to understand more about yourself? Then this video may be for you.
