“Simply put, it’s the tendency to think very highly of yourself and to have little or no regard for others. A narcissist is selfish, vain, and a glutton for attention. But there’s a range. Just because you have some of the traits doesn’t mean you’re mentally unhealthy.” http://www.webmd.com
Lately, I found myself being surrounded by and contributing to a narcissistic personality in some of the closest people around me. I thought a fierce given spirit was fostered in the spirit of these people but learned over the past year that my eyes were closed for years and my heart was open to them due to the fearless love I had for them. I am so disappointed it makes me want to scream. I discovered during the past holiday season the narcissistic tendencies of others on a giving project for the hungry. They volunteered only to take pictures for social media. They didn’t have any desire to help in the true process of the giving project. I encourage giving in mass including involving the youth in the giving process due to some young people get so caught up in their own life they (fuck what people think mindset) forget they live in a BIG world of people including mant that are less fortunate than them.
Does giving projects make a difference for a narcissistic personality? Maybe…
Yes, it’s just another way for some to gain the attention they seek to prove they are great again. For people like myself who are passionate about giving with no publication, spotlight or camera needed. I have learned many people still care less for the unfortunate. If the unfortunate problem doesn’t exist with them then they don’t care. If the unfortunate does show gratitude then they are considered not deserving. Learning people thrive on posting stories on social media of unfortunate lives hardships infuriates me to no end. Young people are the worst. They think about their social media, blogs and the like to publicize the hardship of others yet their contribution is minimal to support great causes unless their parents or peer pressure forces them too. Why bother? We hope change will come in all that lack compassion, a passion, and purpose in this world… #wishfulthinking 🙄😑
