Hi, Dana. I’ve been thinking lately about how we tend to chase the highs in life, and listening to you talk about narcissists, how they operate and how best to deal with them got me thinking along the same lines. It seems as though narcissists are, in a way, drug addicts, and your emotional reaction to their provocation is their next hit. Your advice to walk away seems to mirror that advice commonly given to those in an addict’s life, in that you can only change those who want to change.
Rob, you are bang on my friend. They are very much like addicts, willing to do anything for the next hit and not able to stop and consider those they hurt along the way.
