4. I see myself as special and entitled to do what I want, even if it’s harmful to others.
5. I believe I should get credit for what I do and I should be recognized as superior, even if I do a mediocre job.
6. I am so unique and special that only other unique and special people can understand me. It is beneath me to associate with people who are not as special as I am. While some think I am arrogant, it is only because I’m truly so unique and special.
7. Because I’m so special, I have the right to demand what I want from others, and to manipulate others – with my charm, brilliance, anger or blame – into giving me what I want.
Again, all of us have some of these characteristics and it is important to learn about them, rather than judge ourselves for them.
Whatever be the degree of Narcissism, it can be healed. When you learn and consistently practice the Six Steps of Inner Bonding, you learn to define your own worth, to give yourself the love and compassion you need to feel full inside, and to share the love with others.
