Narcissists are afraid of life. They are afraid of being vulnerable therefore they take the most destructive way to gain control and power. They hurt people to make themselves feel better, strong and superior. They try to control and dominate others because its distracts them from dealing with their own issues.
Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy- the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light. -Brene Brown
