Tell yourself this: For the next thirty days, I will take small steps to educate myself about narcissism. To try to be objective about what I learn. I will give myself time to absorb what’s new and I will not rush to act. My goal will not be changing the entire world, or even changing my relationship. Rather, I will commit to changing myself.
Tell yourself this: for the next 30 days, I will take small steps to educate myself about narcissism.
To try and be objective about what I learn.
I will give myself time to absorb whats new and I will to rush to act.
My goal is not about changing the entire world or even changing my relationship. Rather, I will commit myself - my expectations and my view of myself and my role in the relationship. I trust that , as I change my own world and outlook, the world around me also will shift my eyes because I have new clarity.
Perhaps the other person - the narcissist - will not change. I need not focus on that any longer. Th fact that I have gotten a new perspective on an old problem is what brings me a sense of wellbeing, calmness and hope. My job is to take that new perspective and apply it only to better myself and care for myself.
