Narcissists Try to Fix Themselves on the Outside
Narcissists are constantly on the look out for something or someone outside of themselves to “feel better” – they think they’ll finally be “whole” or “normal” by engaging in get rich quick maneuvers, weight loss gimmicks, rigid regimes, religious fanaticism and other schemes.
They obsessively fixate on and become dependent upon someone else for healing / fixing them. Consummate suckers; whatever keeps them frantically distracted from their issues and truths, they’ll be spending time doing it. Especially if there’s a fan club on hand to give them their much needed admiration while doing it.
Why such frenetic energy?
Narcissists are so terrified of sitting still for a minute, lest all those feelings catch up with them. Shame. Abandonment. Fears. Insecurities. Envy. Jealousy. Possessiveness. Anger. Rage. Emptiness.
They never realize that all these things they’re USING to fill them up WON’T WORK. That hole of theirs, is on the INSIDE. They don’t have the ability to look inside and FIX what is fundamentally skewed about their view of the world and their position in it.
