Do narcissists hate themselves? Maybe not, a 2008 study says.
A viewer asked me to talk about why narcissists hate themselves, so I’m answering that question in today’s vlog.
A 2008 study by Dr. Keith Campbell and several other psychologists found that it’s possible that narcissists don’t actually hate themselves, but that they may lack confidence when it comes to dealing with other people.
I’ll share my thoughts on the study and explain what you can do to deal with this issue if you’re still in a toxic relationship with a narcissist, especially if you’re the primary source of narcissistic supply.
