How would you feel if someone constantly tells you that you are a narcissist? Do you believe it, research it to see if this describes you? Do you go to a therapist for a mental evaluation to see if you are one? I’m at a loss as to what I should do. Can someone tell me where to start or what I can do to get help?

I was a narcissist once. I made it a point to interject myself into everything. Someone would be telling me a story and I would feel compelled to tell them how I would fair in the same situation. No matter what, the idea of me and my actions needed to be considered in it all. I understand why I was that way though. I had it in my head that I was so incredible, I needed others to have the chance to think it to. If I wasn’t dazzling someone with the thought of me, I wasn’t living.
But truthfully, narcissism isn’t something that you’d typically self diagnosed. It’s a matter of perception and evaluation. If you do things like constantly talk about how people flirt with you when you aren’t even trying, forcibly pull the attention to yourself during conversations that don’t highlight you, or say things like you know you’re more attractive than some other person, that’s pretty much narcissism in a nutshell. It’s braggadocios. It’s bombastic. It’s narcissism. If you are narcissistic, I honestly don’t think there is a cure other than just being humbled. But I don’t know. You should have put some of your characteristics in this post. The way you truly describe yourself is a perfect first step to finding out if you are a conceited pixie…lol.

Seeing a therapist can help perhaps. I’ve been looking into getting therapy just to have another person or a professional point of view.
