Narcissistic Behaviour As Defined by Gail Meyers



Those whom embody this behaviour are growing in number globally.   They are the Rector, CEO. Supervisor, Politician, Guru, Shills and Want To Be.  How they came to power in this day and age is not relevant but rather what to do about them is what my concern would be.   They are the uncontested bullies and sadists of our age.  In my day they were the little liars and cowards we told to shape up or threatened with a nose bleeding or the missing of a few teeth.  It was a very effective control strategy. 

As adults a more civil approach is required.   I recommend two or more standing together and simply saying stop or you will face consequences not to your liking.  Be calm and firm in your resolve and they will back down.   I've had to stand up to them on my own and suffered the consequences knowing I would stand alone.  It would have been enough to stop such cowards if only one other stood together with determination and the knowing that a person like this can be easily derailed from their sick mission of destroying community.

Ponder my words and come to your own decisions.   None can tell another how to behave or act.  Unless good sense and strength are internalized only an unpleasant result will ensue.  If people continue to follow these weak, disturbed individuals our human communities will continue their downward spirals.

I wish you all the best and if you so choose to act with self respect and in an honourable manner I can guarantee you will feel better and sleep better at night.

Good speed and stay the course.

Best wishes,
M.N. Hopkins


Note:    The above is my opinion and I stand by my words.

Funny how things are sometimes just yesterday I wrote ...

“We all know evil
most of us want to stay
on the good side of evil
for fear it will lash out at us”

As has been said before

All it takes for evil to flourish
is for good men to do nothing

Part of the problem is our insistence on playing the game of duality. Good and Bad. Start with Heaven then fall through the yukas into the Kali brute. Caligula's hangout.

I suggest we concentrate on ending this daulity good and evil game. It's gone on long enough. We can now literally hear a sighing in the skies!

I heard that there is a shortage of exorcists and a desparate call for them - almost funny.

Completely agree. It does seem there are more and more dysfunctional people out there. Not sure if that is true, or it is that I am just more aware of my surroundings.

Hello!
Thanks for good post. I understand what you mean when you say - suffer the consequences of standing alone. It's hard to find help or other people with common sense in our societies today. I wounder where all the honest people did go. I guess they at the elderly care or the cementeries nowadays. I had a similar experience when trying to act on misbehaviour of a few youngsters (which in Sweden for some reason exclusively seems to be immigrants from african and arabic countries - I wonder if it might be something in their water). Misbehaviour seems like be the common thread througout all our society today. Whether it's narcissitic bosses or the completely lack of respect amongst youngsters.
I wish I had the solution to it but right now I have not ;) unless we are going to ger back when adults and even teachers could use a slap in their face until they learnt a lesson. Suddenly, when watching what our society have become, maybe it wasn't too bad after all.

Thanks for posting, it's serious and relevant questions in this time!
