I am sure you have witnessed loud, distracting and at times ugly scenes of toddlers screaming at the top of their lungs, throwing themselves about, reddened faces, flailing arms, stomping their feet or lying supine on the floor, emitting full throated rage. (This podcast refers to male and female narcissists)
Small children at ages two plus are going through developmental stages when their are forming and becoming individuals in their own right. This is the process of separation and individuation. The child who is attached to the parental figure in a healthy way has begun the journey to developing and living as a real independent self.
The psychological journey of the narcissistic personality takes a different pathway. These individuals according to Dr. James Masterson, a renowned clinical expert and researcher on the narcissistic personality are psychologically regressed at between two and three years of age. They develop a False Self and wear many masks. They remain locked in toddlerhood.
Meeting a narcissist who is so charming and enchanting, you would never know that this is a false self with a real self that is very psychologically regressed.
Marrying a narcissist you soon are victimized by their frequent temper tantrums. It becomes very exhausting and you come to a time when you know that you must divorce this individual. Those who make the decision to divorce the regressed narcissist report that they are now free to be themselves, that they spend as much time as possible in the calming, restorative, creative part of themselves, the parasympathetic. They experience beauty once again and deep inner peace.
