High level narcissists turn your world upside down, ruin your health, hide all the assets, smear you to your family and friends, business associates and blame you for everything that goes wrong. High level narcissists rampage through the lives of others, stealing their talents, energies, good health, creativity, physical and psychological stamina, even their souls. Those who cannot leave the narcissist are chained to his/her grand delusions, false promises, exploitive sins, massive cruelties. Some stay for the heady lifestyle that lifts them into a permanent daily delusional world where everything is pleasure and voluptuousness. No worries or effort, simply saying the word and getting exactly what you want, in this moment. Rubbing shoulders with other elite narcissists is a compelling pastime. High levels getting together to perpetually congratulate themselves on their stellar achievement, their wealth and power, spending time looking down on those who are "not at their level" and therefor labelled "inferior." You have come to a significant reckoning and know that you must extricate yourself from the high level narcissist. Remind yourself of who you truly are - an authentic, original self of fine character. Study the high level narcissist. Put yourself first.
