Narcs’ disregard for others goes far beyond simply not caring very much about them to purposely wanting to hurt, exploit, manipulate, and that makes them capable of the most serious kinds of relational abuse.
YUP!!! I have no time or tolerance anymore for hateful, defensive people who have emotional issues, are jealous beyond belief, & hate themselves....ESPECIALLY when they disrespect my family & then feel the need to explain themselves after they dish out the disrespect....ummm little insecure & have some personality issues do we?!?! :-)
Like, to be honest, just because I know myself, I'm sure that my own "trust no one ever" philosophy will rub off on any children of either gender I may have. But I'm all for teaching respect too, and hopefully eventually creating a world where distrust doesn't need to be everyone's default.
