Still NC after a week or so and not going back. No worries. My mind is made up.
There is something I've been wondering about concerning how conscious a narcissist is what it is they do. We read that they are con men (and women) and I'm sure some are consciously that calculating and sinister. But is it possible that many narcissists are simply that way unconsciously? In other words, while some plot and plan carefully, is it possible that others simply behave that way naturally, without any real active plotting and planning going on?
Either way, they'd both still inflict the same damage on emphathetic individuals, but I have to wonder if at least some narcissists don't even know they're doing what they're doing. Thoughts?
