‘Poor Me Syndrome’ – An Original Poem by Vikki Lee

Written by Angela Atkinson

As you probably know, I write about narcissism, NPD (narcissistic personality disorder) and toxic relationships in general pretty often – but only in an effort to help people to overcome them. I also coach people who have been affected by narcissistic abuse in relationships over at Narcissism Support Coach.

Awhile back, I came across a poem one of my very creative Facebook friends had posted and it really struck a chord with me.

With her permission, I’m publishing it here today. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts!

Poor Me Syndrome by Vikki Lee

Poor Me Syndrome

I am going to make every wrong choice humanly possible in regards to my own well being.

I am not going to listen to anyone.
I am not going to heed any warnings.

I am not going to take your advice.
I am not going to learn from my past mistakes.
I am going to defy authority.

I am going to learn the hard way.
I am going to play the blame game.
I am going to choose wrong over right.
I am going to ignore all the evidence.

I think I will beat the odds.
I think I know better.
I think I know everything and you know nothing.
I think I am invincible. Untouchable.

And then when all hell breaks loose, I get into trouble, or sick.

I am going to call you for help.
I am going to cry.
I am going to blame others for my choices.
I am going to try and hurt myself more.

I am going to repeatedly say “why me”!? or “what did I do do deserve this”!?

I am going to make everyone around me feel horrible.
You did this to yourself.
You were given all the tools in life to make sound decisions.
You were given so many chances.

You did this.
Now, you pay the consequences.
It is the “Poor Me Syndrome”.
