Years ago, I was in a relationship with a man whose ex-wife was a lesbian.
He railed on and on about her.
How she tricked him.
How she was all about herself.
He went so far as to call her a “narcissist.”
Now, between the two of us, he’s the expert.
He has four degrees in psychology while I have never taken a single psychology class in my life.
I did figure this out, however.
Beware the criticisms that people level at other people.
Often time that finger pointing should be aimed right at themselves.
I never met his ex-wife but it did occur to me that between the two of them, he probably suffered from narcissism as much as she did.
For this man was indeed the most frighteningly selfish man I’d ever met.
He’d make Ayn Rand proud.
The other day, I was texting with a man I met on Tinder and I asked about his ex-wife.
He launched into a tirade about how awful she is.
They only communicate in text messages so he has a record of what she’s said.
Yadda, yadda, yadda.
Oh, and by the way, she’s a NARCISSIST!
That’s my cue to DISAPPEAR!
