Book Excerpts from: Freeing Yourself from the Narcissist in Your Life

Narcissistic Rage:

  • “Narcissists harbor a contempt for themselves that is projected onto all of those who share their lives: partners, friends, acquaintances, even strangers. No one is spared their wrath.”
  • “Lies roll off the tongue of a narcissist as smoothly as butter melting on hot bread. For him (or her) lying is as natural as breathing.”
  • “The narcissist is a tyrant who controls the world that he creates. He holds absolute power over his subjects, who have no rights of their own.”
  • “Emotionally detached and isolated, the narcissist is incapable of truly caring for someone else. This callousness allows him to launch plans that psychologically wound others if he perceives them as a threat.”

The Charmed Circle: Worshiping at the Source

  • “The narcissist draws a magical, golden circle around himself…Members of this elite group believe that the light that shines so brightly upon the narcissist will reflect back onto them…”

 Closet Paranoid:

  • “The narcissist has many enemies, real and imagined. He spends a lot of time and energy planning attacks against those who destroy him. Beneath it all, he trusts no one.”
