Welcome to my Blog about Narcissistic Supply. I am by no means an expert in this field but can assure you of my experience of coming across a narcissistic (male). When l say coming across l mean not only a friend but an intimate friend within the space of three months (September 2013 – December 2013). I would like to share my experience and refer to him as Hero. I feel this is necessary so as to pre-warn you of some of the issues you could potentially face if you have the misfortune of coming across a narcissistic. As Gandhi said, ‘ Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.’ Pertinent words indeed. Finally l would like to say – if you come across a Narcissistic and are able to identify them my suggestion is RUN A FAST AS YOU CAN AND DON’T LOOK BACK.
‘I am crying for Narcissus but I have never noticed that Narcissus was beautiful. I am crying for him because every time he bent over my waters, I could have seen deep in the bottom of his eyes the reflection of my own beauty.’ From “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho
FYI – What is Narcissist Supply?
‘Narcissistic supply is any attention, energy, life, help, support, acknowledgement or approval anyone gives a narcissist for any reason, positive or negative, that FEEDS their pathetic, obsessive, craving for attention.’ (http://thenarcissistatwork.com/2012/10/narcissistic-supply-is-more-addictive-than-heroin/)
