Some people walk around showing off or bragging about themselves and acting as if they are better than everyone else on the planet. They are conceited, and conceited people are selfish. They can also be narcissistic, which is a mental disorder. They have an overly excessive interest in themselves and their appearance. They glorify their importance. They have no empathy for others, and they always want to be admired. They often belittle people and look down on them. They insist on the best of everything. They can’t handle criticism. They preoccupy themselves with fantasies; success, beauty, or the perfect mate. They are often jealous of others and believe others are jealous of them.
You shouldn’t be in a relationship with someone that exhibits that kind of behavior. You would never be able to satisfy someone like that, and your needs may not be satisfied if at all. Your relationship would be very unfulfilling. If you don’t give them the admiration they want or do special things for them because they feel they deserve it, then they will not be happy. The people who are like that are sitting way too high on their pedestal, and you will never be able to reach them. You will always be inferior and at the bottom. Remember, there is not one person in the whole world that is better than you! All of us are equally important. Those people usually have very low self-esteem. So don’t let them get to you. Understand that they have an illness and you are not the problem…Carol Guajardo
