Is the narcissist ever sorry?
In theory, it's possible for a narcissist to feel sorry. A diagnosis for NPD doesn't really require a lack of empathy and a god complex isn't even one of the criteria. Unfortunately, I've never seen any reports of a narcissist feeling genuine remorse. This could simply be because we don't think of anybody who can genuinely feel remorse as a potential narcissist.
Does a narcissist ever feel guilty to the point of giving expensive guilt presents in a relationship?
Can a Narcissist ever have a meaningful long-term relationship or would it have to be with another Narcissist?
A Masochist is someone that loves pain, in short, and very generalized. Loving a narcissist is about pain, therefore only a masochist could love a narcissist. Having said that, I think someone was being very sarcastic when writing it as anyone can fall in love with a narcissist, they are very charming and morph themselves to you, for awhile. I think they were trying to make the point that only a masochist could enjoying loving…
Is there any hope for a narcissists' grandchildren and how can the parents of the children deal with the narcissist?
There is every hope. Don't ever allow them to spend ANY time alone with the narcissist and protect them from their criticisms and reaffirm their self worth and value if the Narcissist gets to them. if things get bad, just stop taking the children. Their emotional, psychological and mental protection is paramount.
It could depend on who the narcissist is, whether they are male or female, and their age. In general the answer would be no. Actually narcissists are very self involved and/or self centered people and would not be as comfortable,mainly because they not the one and only center of attention. A nudist resort is about accepting others and existing equally. A narcissist is nothing like that.
Can the narcissist ever become himself and he is a narcissist and so is his mother he seems to look to her for acceptance can he change if she accepts him?
I don't think so. How can change occur in narcissist whose mother is a narcissist as well, even if she accepts him? The very sickness comes from that lack of emotional support given by the mother at the most crucial time, birth. My mother in law has damaged my husband so much that because he is a product of his environment, he had dished out his madness upon me and his children. Sadly, I am…
Yes. They will return for many years, to torture the devalued, if they can, especially if the narcissist is a psychopath. My ex-narcissist expressed it himself very well. He just said, "I am a very evil person, and I enjoy making people suffer." Basically he will return if he thinks he can get anything out of you...money, sex, or a place to stay, for himself or his new girlfriend. And narcissists may alternate between vaulation…
Is it wrong to aviod the re-married narcissistic wife not to see either ever or hear from her ever again?
If I was the best thing to ever happen to my narcissist boyfriend and loved him unconditionally and catered to his every whim then why did he cheat on me with a friend discard me and never look back?
If he was a narcissist, then nothing you did could ever be a good as he knew he "deserved." So he looked elsewhere, which he'll probably keep doing for the rest of his life, no matter how well the woman he's with treats him. He wanted something other than what he got from you. I think it's the same answer regardless of his psychiatric diagnosis, if any. It would be harder to please a narcissist…
