Unethical narcissistic behavior
Are you dealing with a covert narcissist who is making your life a living hell?
I can fully understand your pain.
I have been protecting my daughter and I from a narcissistic mother for years.

let’s first break all the myths of what a Narcissist actually is.
People will always go straight to google when they want to learn about…. anything in the world.
Type into google “narcissist” and what’s the first thing that comes up from Oxford dictionaries ?

narcissists think the world revolves around them”
I bet somebody would read such a simple definition and move on with their life.
I even did at one point because i was uneducated.
In my opinion, it doesn’t even come close to what a narcissist is.
The unfortunate thing is that people could be dealing with not only a covert narcissist, but a frightening narcissistic sociopath
and not even know it.
Why? because google gave the “top answer” that is far from the real definition.
Society has made the world believe that being narcissistic isn’t even all that bad.
Let’s see a clearer definition of what you are dealing with.
Helpguide defines the narcissistic behavior exactly as it should be.
“The word narcissism gets tossed around a lot in our selfie-obsessed, celebrity-driven culture, often to describe someone who seems excessively vain or full of themselves.
But in psychological terms, narcissism doesn’t mean self-love—at least not of a genuine sort. It’s more accurate to say that people with narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) are in love with an idealized, grandiose image of themselves. “
