About luckyotter

This blog is my journal. I just choose to share it with the world instead of keeping everything inside my head. I'm a recovering Borderline and have also struggled with Avoidant Personality Disorder. I also have Complex PTSD due to having been the victim of narcissistic abuse for most of my life. I write mostly about narcissism, because I was the child of a narcissistic mother, and then married to a sociopathic malignant narcissist for 20 years. But there's a silver lining too. In some ways they taught me about myself. This blog is about all that. Not all my articles will be about NPD, BPD or other personality disorders or mental conditions. I pretty much write about whatever's on my mind at the moment. So there's something for everyone here. Blogging about stuff is crack for my soul. It's self therapy, and hopefully my insights and observations may help others too.

  1. I think there is a lot of truth in that. They get all defensive because they’re aware of their own misgivings and then meet someone with far fewer misgivings than them and they can’t handle it. So they try to make the other person look bad, then they can feel better about themselves.

    It’s weird, I’ve met people who were ‘better’ or ‘more’ than me in a number of ways, but, I never tore them apart for it, I just worked on improving myself. It’s almost like if someone admits something bad to you that they did, then you had better admit to something you did too just so they can feel better.

    In my life, I’ve seen I’ve always had to step down to people, let them win, whether they were the winners or not. It’s almost like I’ve played this game of life foolishly, by always trying to be good. It’s worked against me.

      I hear you. I’ve always been a pushover because I’m “nice”. I do envy people, but I’m like you, I don’t envy people to the point of trying to destroy what they have. Envy isn’t pleasant, but sometimes it can motivate you to do better.
