THE NARCISSIST - 58/365
"How do you like my doo? Isn't the color FANTASTIC? I can hardly walk down the street without someone telling me how fabulous I look. And, what do you think of the little accent piece? It cost so much I won't eat for a week - but that's okay...I'll dine on "praise" any day."
I'll admit that I like praise. I love it when someone likes what I'm wearing or is interested in what I'm doing. I don't think I'm a narcissist, but how do I like the praise without depending on it? How do I enjoy an other's interest without needing it to feed my own?
Perhaps the more joy I find in the exploration - the less I'll depend on others to approve of the "outcome."
How dependent are you on the praise of others?
