The Malicious Hypocrisy of the High Level Narcissist

Many people are so taken with the compelling, thrilling, seductive self image of the high level narcissist that they are incapable and unwilling to perceive these malevolent individuals for who they truly are - vile exploiters of those whom they psychologically and mentally control. They do not suffer the burden of conscience. Conscience required a lot of work. It involves thinking about the welfare of others, making sure that we are making moral decisions. A quote from my book: Freeing Yourself from the Narcissist in Your life summarizes qualities of the high level narcissist: "The narcissist has an incredible sense of self-entitlement. Everything is about him and belongs to him. He smoothly oversteps the personal boundaries of others, mistreating, devaluing and humiliating them to bend them to his will and his desires." As a result of your research and clear intuitive sight you see through the false personas, the true nature of the hypocritical high level narcissist. . You have opened your pathway to rediscovering the gifts and boons of your original true self. Give yourself credit for your perseverance, courage, your strong belief in yourself, your mental and psychological stamina. Focus on yourself and movement into the restorative, calming pathways of the parasympathetic of self care and the full use of your unique creative gifts. https://tinyurl.com/y39j2uke www.mhnrnetwork.com https://tinyurl.com/y3ss5clg

Narcissistic Mother's Pernicious Envy of Her Daughter

The word envy comes from the Latin "invidere" which means "look upon" - A desire to have something possessed by another. Narcissistic mothers know that they are superior to everyone else, especially their daughters. If you re the daughter you felt your mother appraising you very early and finding you wanting. She picked away at your self confidence. Her tone of voice was demeaning. She never approved of you. The daughter is psychologically immobilized and unable to activate her gifts. She is frightened all of the time. Nothing you accomplish will ever win mother's praise or approval. She despises your warmth, intelligence, creativity and especially authenticity and spontaneity. At a point of awakening you recognized that this woman is not capable of mothering. You separate and find your way along your own pathway of evolution and transformation. https://tinyurl.com/y39j2uke www.mhnrnetwork.com https://tinyurl.com/y3ss5clg
