Teaching a Narcissist a Lesson - 25oct21
Don’t try to teach a narcissist a lesson.
They can NOT learn.
For their problem is neither one of ignorance
nor of so called “stinking thinking.”
Their problem is NOT one of software
but rather of hardware.
Their prefrontal cortex seems to bypass
its anterior cingulate gyrus
(the seat of empathy)
and connects directly to its brainstem:
cruel and ruthless;
an express route (if you will)
with no intervening off ramps.
Like hyperspace lanes in “The Clone Wars.”
No, don’t separate yourself from a narcissist
to teach them a lesson
but rather because
you’ve learned the lesson,
that you can’t change them.
And they will drain you,
and discard you.
And prevent you
from using your talents
to brighten the world around you.
Let us conclude
with a simple
call to action
