Narcissism: A 6S Essay by Fred Meyer
by Fred Meyer
I, Fred Meyer, know a few things about narcissism that I would like to share with you in this 6S informational essay, and I will share some personal anecdotes that will help you to see where I am coming from, I hope (I am pretty sure I can pull this off).
First, narcissism is when I am very conceited or vain or think of myself more highly than I should or when I have an inordinate fascination with myself or love myself too much; I, Fred Meyer, have never been like that, I am just telling you what it would look like if I did have a problem with narcissism, but I am sure that I don’t (I inspect my own motives and behavior several times per day, so I know myself pretty well, I think).
Second, I myself have never had this condition, but I am sure some of you do, so I will share some more about what I know: narcissism can really hinder you in relationships, and I know that I wouldn’t want my relationships hindered, so I avoid narcissism in my life, I do know that much (I have seen narcissism destroy some relationships, so I know what I am talking about, trust me).
Third, I, Fred Meyer, know that psychologists have determined that overly permissive parents that lavish their children with too much praise can contribute to narcissism, but, I wouldn’t really know about that because my mom was just allowing me freedom to express myself, and all of the praise she heaped on me was just her being honest about me, more than anything, I believe (I am sure that most of the praise that most of you received from your parents was false, so I would be careful because you probably believed their lies, in my opinion).
Fourth, I myself know that narcissistic people will view themselves as smarter, better looking, harder working, and more creative than others, but I can honestly say that I am those things without having any feelings of pride or dishonesty—it is simply the truth, and it is important to me that I speak it (I know that this sounds arrogant, but I believe that it is very important that I be honest and truthful with myself).
In conclusion, I, Fred Meyer, know that narcissism is a really serious and dangerous condition that many of you have (I don’t judge you because I may even have a fault or two myself that I am not aware of in me), and I hope that this short essay has helped you to identify it in your own lives, so you can rid yourselves of it (I feel really good about myself for helping you, and I feel like I got to know myself a bit better by sharing my knowledge and story).
I wrote 14 Sixes in my first week, so I am pretty good at this stuff already. If you like what you have read here (I am sure that you do), then be sure to check out my other work written by myself:
