The trend of The Times and widespread anxiety have led to the increasingly serious phenomenon of female narcissism. But the first thing to note is that narcissism is not a disease, it is an adaptation to a harsh environment and a way of hiding your true self.
Why do some people get plastic surgery and liposuction when they look so good?
Why do many people use beauty filters when taking photos?
Why do some people always have an emotional dilemma -- fear of being hurt when they are close; When you choose to stay away, are you afraid of being alone?
This is because they all have varying degrees of narcissistic personality disorder, they want to use success, money, other people's recognition to make up for the lack of self-worth, they behave rationally and frankly, but all have deep insecurity and inferiority.
According to veteran psychotherapist Bebel Wadzky, narcissistic personality disorder is often characterized by severe self-doubt and low self-esteem, and the glossy appearance of confidence is often just a way to hide inner insecurity. In this book, she starts from a large number of female cases, integrates the theories of many famous schools such as Winnicott and Jung, and divides the performance of female narcissism into eight aspects: Weight, diet, physical appearance, narcissistic exploitation of children, sense of accomplishment, self-esteem, desire for recognition and intimacy, and in-depth analysis of the cause of narcissistic personality disorder - the impact of "primal interpersonal relationships."
People with narcissistic personality disorder never touch their true selves. This book is written for all women, hoping that women who have had such problems can better understand and accept their narcissism disorder through this book, and hope that all women can learn to accept and embrace themselves, rebuild independent personality, and break free from the shackles of narcissism.
