Is It Just Me Who Attracts Narcissists/ Sociopaths?
I have learned well from the narcissists in my life. Most importantly that life is too short to deal with that particular brand of crazy. As a healer-conscious person I spent most of my life thinking if I didn't try to help them I was not doing my best as a person of caring.
WRONG! -- On the other hand there is a 'range' of narcissistic abuse and disorder. The minute you know you are dealing with extreme range get as far away as you possibly can. It's about survival and self respect.
You teach people how to treat you by what you allow them to do to you.
I wish you luck. Find a nice boring guy. Narccissists tend to be charming and fun. But the quiet "boring' (for search of a better word) kind of guys always tend to be smart and loyal and super nice. We've been brainwashed into thinking 'flattery, charming and excitement' makes for a good catch. But in the end I'll take kindness and loyalty any day!
