Am I Narcissistic?Watch
I have been told that I am. (Look up “definition of narcissism” to see what it means if you don’t already.) But it’s not like I don’t care about others! I do tend to put other people’s needs before mine, if I care about them. I do think I am really pretty and have been told it’s not so good to brag, even though other people tell me I’m pretty. This all started last year I think. So I used to wear just mascara for makeup. Then for no reason at all, I thought to myself, “I should not wear makeup, if I really am pretty I wouldn’t need it.” So now I don’t wear makeup. And I am aware of when I look bad. Sometimes my hair is messed up, or I look tired, or not pretty in a traditional way. But I look in the mirror and smile and tell myself I’m pretty. Is it unhealthy to tell myself I’m pretty to the point that I don’t know whether I’m right or not? Does anyone else have this problem?
Everyone is pretty in their own way, knowing it isn't narcissistic. Narcicissm is more selfish, excessive behaviours and ideas of being the very very best at everything, but valuing yourself isn't part of that
Being comfortable and confident in your appearance doesn't mean you're a narcissist - it's quite a serious and complex term which most people use lightly without any consideration as to what narcissism actually is
