Although it's not considered as dangerous as other disorders, narcissism can be just as damaging to your mental health. Writing about narcissists seems to be on trend, but I will keep it short.
Narcissists are typically ego-centric, self-absorbed people who feel superior to others and believe they deserve special treatment. They often come off as arrogant and self-centered, and they may have difficulty maintaining healthy relationships because they're unable to see the world from anyone else's perspective.
Narcissists tend to be very critical of others but rarely take responsibility for their actions—which is why narcissists often end up alienating themselves from their friends and family members over time. This is because narcissists tend to see themselves as victims of circumstance or other people's faults rather than as responsible individuals who should take responsibility for their own lives.
If you're dealing with a narcissist, you must try to avoid getting sucked into their games. Narcissists will often try to provoke arguments with you by making sweeping generalizations about your character or making personal attacks against you to get you worked up enough so that they can make themselves look superior in comparison.
When this happens, the best thing to do is to ignore them and walk away. You don't have time for their childish games, so don't let them get under your skin.
