Ever wonder if you’re a narcissist? You might just have a few fleas…narcissistic fleas, that is. In this case, we’re not talking about the kind of narcissist who just looks in the mirror too often or takes a lot of selfies. We’re talking about a malignant narcissist.
A malignant narcissist is someone who has narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) along with antisocial features, paranoid traits, and ego-driven aggression. They may also exhibit an absence of conscience, a psychological need for power, and an inflated sense of self-importance and entitlement, among other symptoms of NPD. They may be a grandiose or overt type of narcissist, or they may be a covert narcissist.
What are narcissistic fleas?
Narcissistic “fleas” are behaviors that are traditionally exhibited by toxic narcissists or people with narcissistic personality disorder (NPD). After spending months or years under the control of a toxic, abusive narcissist, their victims tend to pick up these behaviors as a sort of side effect of the abuse – and of the general proximity to these people. These behaviors might even include those that have often been considered abusive when they are used by narcissists, such as verbal bullying, coldness, and an apparent lack of empathy.
In other words, narcissistic fleas are sort of a complication of long-term involvement with someone who has narcissistic personality disorder. This may be a narcissistic parent or a narcissistic spouse, or even a long-term narcissistic friend or co-worker.
Can you get rid of narcissistic fleas?
The good news is these so-called “fleas” can be eradicated with mindfulness and intention. In this video, I explain in detail exactly what narcissistic fleas are, how you actually get them, and how you can get rid of them. Plus, I offer examples of what it looks like when you get a case of these “fleas,” including one or two from my own life.

What the heck do narcissists want from us? What do narcissists want from relationships? Is it ever possible to be enough for a narcissist?
People with NPD (narcissistic personality disorder) and other cluster b disorders are confusing and while they seem charming and dynamic, they are also sort of a double-edged sword – one side is their public persona while the “behind closed doors” version of the narcissist is often a whole other person – one that those closest to the narcissist are often the only witnesses to.
But what the heck do they want? That’s what I’m covering in this video – in detail.
Are you walking on eggshells in your relationship? Do you feel like you’re always on alert – worrying that your partner, friend or family member will become angry, upset or otherwise unhappy with you?
In this video, I’ll share 38 signs that you could be in an emotionally abusive relationship.
It’s not breaking the eggs that does the lasting harm; it’s the continual walking on eggshells. Emotional damage has a way of lingering in the times between resentful, angry, or abusive flare-ups. The empty, dull ache of unhappiness is most accurately measured in the accumulative effect of these small moments of disconnection, isolation and dread.
Narcissists love to may label you unreasonable, crazy, an over-reactor – even say you’re making it all up. They assign all blame (literally for every issue or concern) in the relationship to you, and they become offended and angry if they don’t think you seem like you want to accept it.
Narcissists and people with NPD tend to use denial of their own behavior when it’s convenient for them – and almost always in situations where they can be considered “at fault” for anything negative.
