Quoting from my book: Freeing Yourself From the Narcissist in Your Life: "Envy is a secret, taboo emotion. People don't talk about their envies. Being envious makes us look bad...envy in the narcissist is skillfully hidden...After all , he knows he is the best. Why should he be envious of someone who is his inferior."
The narcissist makes up for his inability to have a genuine relationship by desiring what others have. He devalues other human beings, especially those he views as having more social and financial advantages..."
"Beneath all the bravado--the elaborate facade of superiority, grand delusions and haughty disdain of others, lies an insatiable hunger for what others have."
You are very different from the high level narcissist: genuine, of fine character, wise, knowledgeable, empathic. You are moving forward along your own pathway of healing, recovery, transformation and creativity.
