Is there a way to determine if they are a narc or just self centered. I read through the posts here and most of what everyone says sounds like they could be talking about my ex. But its hard to tell if he really is a Narc, or am I just hurt and looking for answers?
I had no idea what narcissism was until I started to google the silent treatment that he unleashes on me on a regular basis. That is how I discovered all of this information, and found this site.
So this is probably the 6th or more silent treatment I have experienced from my ex in the last year. We have a long distance relationship so most of our communication is via text and chat. My ex found me on fb over a year ago after we were forced to break up 16yrs ago by his parents. I never had a chance to say goodbye. I still long for that closure.
I am happily married and cant figure out why I am obsessing over my ex that treats me like crap. Tells me I am crazy and need to get help and meds.
He has nothing to offer me, he is sick, doesn't work, is married, and treats me like shit. I am married with children have a successful job and stable foundation. He is constantly telling me the state I live in is terrible. That I should get divorced etc.
Does this sound like a Narc?
