Does that make you one?

I don't believe what I believe because it's what I desire to believe. I believe what I believe because it's what science, evidence, and logic causes me to believe.

I think..like anything..it's a matter of degrees..fuzzy logic et all (when does the apple cease to be an apple, etc..)

Narcissism, I wonder if the greatest people
that walk this earth know something
about that. Laugh
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Narcissism

"In Greek mythology, Narcissus was a handsome Greek youth who had never seen his reflection. The nymph Echo had been punished by Hera for gossiping by being cursed to forever "have the last word". Echo had seen Narcissus walking through the forest and wanted to talk to him, but because of the curse she wasn't able to speak first. When Narcissus became thirsty and stopped to take a drink, he saw his reflection in the water for the first time. Not knowing any better, he fell in love and started talking to it. Echo had been following him and started repeating the last thing he said. Not yet understanding reflections, Narcissus thought his reflection was speaking to him and became more engaged. Unable to consummate his love, Narcissus pined away at the pool and changed into the flower that bears his name, the narcissus."

"There are two derivations of the name. One is that of the youth of Greek mythology called Narcissus, who, in at least one of many variations of the tale, became so obsessed with his own reflection as he kneeled and gazed into a pool of water that he fell into the water and drowned. In some variations, he died of starvation and thirst from just sitting by the edge of the pool until he gave out, gazing at his reflection until he died. In both versions, the Narcissus plant first sprang from where he died.

The other derivation is that the plant is named after its narcotic properties (ναρκάω narkao, "to grow numb" in Greek).[6]"

He died and lived.

Now what does this have to do with love..
what does narcissism have to do with love..
cmon someone give me some suggestions
with as little of pride and prejudice as possible.

oooooops. 🙄 Laugh

One aspect of it is using other people for your own gains. You don't find anything wrong with that? 😕

A narcissist need not be in denial. 😎

Interesting stuff, I didn't know the origin of the word was rooted in Greek mythology.

If a narcissist admitted to others that he/she was a narcissist, others could then be on guard and not allow the narcissist use them. In effect, that person would no longer be a narcissist, since that person would lose his/her power to be one.

I don't believe what I believe because it's what I desire to believe. I believe what I believe because it's what science, evidence, and logic causes me to believe.
