bible hope and a future
What we see in the man or woman who has narcissistic traits or even a diagnosed personality disorder is arrogance and preoccupation with themselves and their needs. The desire to be seen as essential, powerful and superior to others is a that requires quenching each and every turn. They search for people who use them a pedestal and revere their presence and intelligence. When those self same people will no longer view them like this, they dispose of them and proceed to the next individual. In order to receive the praise from individuals who they crave and desire, these are manipulative and will often tell lies in what they've got accomplished, who they may be and what you will or might be capable of achieving. For those people that the narcissist sees as being "lower" or "less valuable" than these are, the narcissist will treat these with disdain. The need to control individuals who are around them is very important for the narcissist. Before commencing battle a soldier needs to prepare. To wear the correct armour and get their hands on a shield and sword. The armour protects from harm and the sword kills the not so good guy. You also need to be fighting fit. It's the same whenever you battle against yourself. You need protection from dangerous illusions also to be with right knowledge and understanding.
