Can you identify a person with narcissistic or sociopathic traits? You might have even come across a couple of them in life without even realizing it. It’s important to distinguish that all sociopaths are narcissists, but not all narcissists are sociopaths. Many aspects of their personalities overlap, but the motives behind their actions are very different. A sociopath tries to control every detail of your life, whereas a narcissist only cares about shifting all attention to himself. They’re also similarly manipulative in trying to get what they want.
These are the 5 most common sentences that narcissists and sociopaths use to make you feel bad about yourself:
1. I hate drama
They emphasize their dislike for drama, but if you look closer, their life is full of it. They praise and idealize you, making it seem as though you’re above everyone else, but are in fact pathological liars, serial adulterers and very good at playing the victim. This is, however, very difficult to discern in the beginning. At the slightest mention of frustration or worry on your part, they manipulate you into feeling as though you’re causing unnecessary drama.
