Accepting New Clients
If you know a person with abnormally high opinions of himself (or herself) and shows little or no regard for others, he could be a narcissist. The traits of this mental condition are detrimental to him and the people who interact with him to the point where those traits start to harm them and distort their sense of self.
But there are ways to manage narcissists, and the office of Mars & Venus Counseling Center can help you understand and deal with their behaviors. We offer our patients empathy, patience and a broad spectrum of knowledge, along with the highest quality of expert care. We tailor the healing to address each patient’s needs.
A narcissist is self-centered, conceited and constantly craves attention. He couldn’t care less about your feelings and rarely acquires empathy.
The Ugly Truth
You’re simply a means or an obstacle to getting what he (or she) wants. He’s clueless as to how he affects you. He requires a steady stream of your praise, and if that praise dries up even momentarily, things could get thorny if he quickly becomes aggressive and hostile.
His ego is fragile because he’s afraid that he’s inferior in some way. He might lash out, intimidate, belittle and be demeaning if someone pokes a hole in his ego.
How To Deal
Don’t blame yourself if you didn’t spot your romantic partner’s signs. She (or he) can be popular and charming at first but eventually become cruel, manipulative and icy. She might strike up an affair with a man she thinks is superior to you. Don’t defend her when she offends or deceives others; she’ll likely do the same to you. Get out of the relationship, and then concentrate on your own goals and dreams.
If a co-worker is a narcissist, she’ll overinflate her proficiencies and insult yours. She’ll boast with no modesty, give unsolicited advice, crash private conversations and steal ideas without a second thought.
Narcissists won’t apologize for their behavior or how they conduct their lives, so you should:
Mars & Venus Counseling Center is dedicated to the comfort of every patient. We maintain a position at the forefront of advances in treatments and offer effective solutions for your condition. Please don’t hesitate to call our office today.
