Status

homeI come from a family that suffers with narcissism.  It is socially accepted, in that we are all encouraged to hustle and compete with each other for status.

But what is status?

When you focus on gaining statussy things; job titles instead of fulfilling jobs; pedigree animals instead of animal friends; posh houses instead of homely spaces you can rest in, I feel it is missing the point.  You are seeking happiness in reactions from other people rather than from inside.

I see narcissism as something to see for what it is, which to me is an affliction.  But I am healing, and so are my family.  Times are good, and I can only see them getting better.
