Why You Might Want to Stay Away from Prince Charming

Why You Might Want to Stay Away from Prince Charming

Prince Charming, First Impressions:

A few years ago, I met a man who was extremely charming, who seemed to have a rich, fascinating and varied life, who seemed smart, talented and accomplished, and who I felt an amazing connection to.

Our relationship felt mutual at the beginning, but it didn’t take long for me to feel like:

Something Wasn’t Right

I realized that I was slowly over the months, feeling worse and worse about myself in the context of the relationship, even though he wasn’t being specifically mean to me.   He would call me issues that he was having, that I’d help him with, and then he would regularly tell me about all the favors he was doing for others. But whenever I needed his support, somehow it never happened.

Then while carpooling to a work related event in a town several hours away, he dropped me off at my hotel, and went off to dinner and a movie with his friend, without concern about how I might find dinner without a car.   I spent the whole weekend struggling to understand how he could do such a thing, until my cousin introduced me to the Narcissistic Personality Disorder.   And suddenly everything I had experienced with him started to make sense.

What is Narcissistic Sociopathic Personality Disorder?

Narcissism is a sociopathic personality disorder.   Narcissists are often extremely intelligent and charming, but they lack empathy, are manipulative, controlling, excessively self interested, will tell you incredible made-up stories of their own achievements, and will leave you feeling used.   They have an extraordinary need for admiration, often are envious and believe others are envious of them.  They feel very entitled, even if it’s at the expense of others.

Narcissism is on the Rise!

Here is another reason to be aware of the characteristics of narcissism. There is growing scientific evidence that in societies that are more unequal, there is more love moneyunethical and narcissistic behavior in those with higher status.  In fact, since the 1980’s, narcissism rates are increasing as measured by the Narcissistic Personality Inventory.   And if you are struggling to understand CEO’s who can live with a salary 354 times more than the average employee, and who seem to have no remorse that most of its employees might qualify for food stamps, the narcissism diagnosis explains it all.  Read about many other devastating problems that can occur if your company has a narcissistic CEO.

So, if you meet Prince Charming, watch for these signs, before you get too close. Highly sensitive people often end up in relationships with them, and they can destroy your confidence and leave you feeling used and abused.

You will be glad you were warned!
