When You Feel Something Desirable for the Narcissistic Person, Pay Attention to the Opposite Emotion

Narcissism and Scapegoating

“Every desirable feeling one experiences with or because of the narcissist is invisibly bound to one far less desirable feeling—its polar opposite. Months spent feeling wanted and special will invariably deteriorate into feeling discarded, abandoned, ostracized — the polar opposite of the warm, fuzzy, too-good-to-be-true love you thought you had.”
