Paranoia and fear are often the root of a narcissistic sociopath’s behavior. He fears being judged and ridiculed the way he judges and ridicules others. He fears being cheated on or abandoned just as he cheats on and abandons his partners, one after the other.
The tragedy is that all of this fear and paranoia is manifested from the vapors and imagination of the narcissist’s disordered mind due to his own shitty behavior. None of these fears are due to the actions or words of the narcissist’s current or past partners, his unsuspecting victims. Because he judges without care, cheats with impunity, and feels entitled to anything and everything he covets, he assumes all others do, as well. He is convinced good people think like him. He couldn’t be more wrong! This is his downfall. His is the mind and thought process of a fool.
No one wants to be him, look like him, or have what he has. Because he is ugly on the inside, and it shows on the outside. (And it’s going to get more noticeable as he gets older.)
He has no friends, he loses his girlfriends like a child loses toys, his family despises him, his workers and coworkers tolerate him, and the people he thinks he has wrapped around his finger just humor him. Everyone is on to him, and he’s the butt of our jokes.
But it is futile to confront him or argue with the narcissistic sociopath. Why? Because we can’t defeat a man who has fooled himself from the inside out. It’s best to leave him alone in his sandbox. One day he’ll realize that he’s the one who keeps rubbing sand in his own face, no one else.
