Some grandiose narcissists are egomanical. Their bloated sense of self is without boundaries. They are delusional, believing that they are all powerful, omniscient, demi gods.

They are obsessed with obtaining and maintaining the highest levels of raw power and control over others in their orbits.

Quoting from my book: Freeing Yourself from the Narcissist in Your Life: "The narcissist fabricates delusions that protect his/her belief in limitless power. The narcissist holds fast to his bloated self images...for him these are irrefutable and immutable truths. His core beliefs are unshakable: "There is nothing I can't do, I have no limits. I'm perfect---everyone else is mediocre and inferior. I will win at all costs."

Grandiose narcissist create thickets of lies. They lie automatically and take great pleasure in lying to you in a variety of ways. The focus is always on them and what they can get and take from you. 

Grandiose narcissists control you by manufactoring an empty promise that you will become part of their unique, golden circle of followers who are treated as special and unique.  

Shameless to the highest degree, the grandiose narcissist does not have a fully developed conscience. 

Highly exploitive, the grandiose narcissist treats others with disrespect and disdain.  

For them, you are expendable, like a used wrapper thrown to the winds.

Delirious with greed grandiose narcissists can't stop themselves from obsessive acquisition of  properties, money, trusts, investments. 

At a time of awakening you recognize that you need to separate from the delusional, psychopathollogical world of the grandiose narcissist. 

Practice self care each day: rest and sleep that you need and deserve, eat nourishing food, movement and exercise, quieting the mind or meditation for calming and focus. Listen to beautiful music that puts you in a restorative healing mode. 

Celebrate your essence---your unique individuality!
