No Shame in Their Game…Yet!

I just received an email containing a link to a reprint from a few months ago, that was an answer to a question posed on a forum. This answer was about the five things narcissists do every day. Not only did I find these things extremely disgusting, believable, and annoying, but to sum it up, these folks are simply bullies, just with a sophisticated-sounding name. Check this out about narcissists from Robert Torbay with Quora.

  1. They look for other people’s egos to destroy.

  2. Narcissists are bitterly jealous of people who have functioning egos, realistic world views that enable them to work hard and create skills, home talents that generate them praise, validation, wealth, happiness.

  3. By destroying the ego of another, a narcissist is able to push their unwanted feelings of worthlessness, jealousy, hatred and other negative emotions into the victim.

  4. Destroying, stealing your accomplishments is not enough, the narcissist seeks a mortal strike on the engine where all these things come from. For if they do not, you will rapidly rebuild, to show them up for the losers they are once again.

  5. The Narcissist will seek out the pillars that hold up the ego of the other, the things that generate their self esteem, and the narcissist will attempt to topple their enjoyment and emotional investment in hobbies, relationships, achievements and goals.

Once the person’s ego has collapsed, the narcissist also gains a smug feeling of satisfaction at being better than someone else, at outwitting and fooling a hated enemy.

This sounds like a character in a movie, but sadly this is art imitating life, real life. Check out Cherie White, many of you know her, who has an in-depth site about exposing bullies and liberating targets. Just click on her name, and it will lead you to her site of related topics.

It’s so sad that these folks who we watch on TV, videos, and witness in-person feel validated to act like a plum fool just because they can. If they have an audience cheering them on, oh my God, you talk about a Nightmare on Elm Street upping their exploitation! Bad behavior does not need attention but awareness. You have to be aware of their tactics to protect and empower yourself from being caught up in the clutches of their claws. Yet, I still say, karma is badass!

  1. Thank you so much for the mention, sweetie! What a pleasant surprise this is! πŸ’–πŸ’πŸŒΉπŸ˜ƒπŸ•Š And BINGO! You found the perfect description of the narcissist. πŸ’―πŸŽ―πŸ‘And as you said, there’s “no shame in their game.” Quora is an awesome forum with threads that discuss bullying and narcissism and a good learning tool! And psst- Quora is 1000x better than Reddit because Reddit has a lot of bullying on their site. Quora is much safer and a better resource for information or informed opinions. Again, thank you so much, Kym! 😍πŸ₯°

  4. Oh my goodness Cherie, I apologize for not giving you a heads up girlfriend! 😱 Your channel containing the type of messaging so many need to hear is commendable and so very important, especially nowadays! πŸ‘πŸΌ

    Yep, I came across Quora some time ago and found so much on that platform absolutely astounding. So often, I shake my head because I know those articles contain truth, broken down in Layman’s terms. I don’t know why Reddit, as much as people talk about it does not seem to hold my attention or grab me as I thought it would. It’s like a hit or miss with me. But when I read that piece that I mentioned today, I thought about you. Keep doing what you’re doing girlfriend. Continue to empower! πŸ˜πŸ™πŸΌπŸ’―πŸ’πŸ€—πŸŒŸπŸ₯‚πŸ’ͺ🏽

  9. Awareness about this is so important. I did my thesis on bullying behaviors and intervention programs, and while interventions can mitigate bullying, it tends to continue on, especially for populations that are most vulnerable. When we recognize the signs, we can get into action to make a difference. Great post, Kym! βœ¨πŸ™πŸŒ»β˜ΊοΈβ€οΈπŸŒΉπŸ’–

  12. Most of these people are engage in the criminal activity called gangstalking and have Flying Monkeys working for them. They destroy a person’s self-stem by operating a smear campaign against them. I say those who listen to the criminal are no better than the person committing the crime.
