Now I'm a Narcissist - August 21st 2012, 09:42 AM

I just got over my 3 years of depression 1 month ago yesterday.
But in the past 2 weeks or so,I've been Very full of myself.Putting myself first Way to much,and I have a feeling it's hurting the people around me.
Dont get me wrong,I love this.Its totally amazzing compared to the depression,and I Never want it to end.I went from -10 self-esteem,to +20.But it's getting out of hand.me screaming 'I AM THE AWESOME PRUSSIA!'in everyone's ear all day.


Believe the tunnel can end, believe your body can mend.
Yea I know you could make it through cause I believe in you.

First of all, that's awesome that you're doing so much better, and I definitely think you should be proud of yourself for that. However, you said you noticed you might be hurting people around you which isn't good. Maybe it would help to try to think a minute before you speak, and imagine if you would want the same thing said to you. If not, you probably shouldn't be saying it. After you do this for a while, you shouldn't have to think about it as much anymore. It's good that you recognized this; so many people never do, or if they do, they don't care to do anything about it. And I don't think this makes you a narcissist.

Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooooooooooood evening in Australia, awesome person. Congratulations on getting better, you really deserve it and you have definitely worked hard to get better and get where you are now, tackling Depression is no mean feat.

Sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo proud of you even though I have never met you haha. . Anyway, onto your question. You say you THINK this might be hurting your friend, you should ASK them and figure out whether they find this irritating or whatever.

If they say no then fine, they are not irritated and it is their problem if they are but if yes then no sweat. Just tone is down a couple of notches at least when around THEM and then they will be fine.

You know YOUR self esteem is through the roof, soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo high and you are feeling the rewards of that, you're happy, you have just got to be able to tone down SHOWING how happy and confident you are.

Your self esteem's not going to change within you no matter whether they are irritated or hurt or whatever, you're still a very happy girl but if they are irritated then just don't show that as much around them.

Hope that makes sense.

Veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeery easily fixable problem, very easy indeed. Just ask them and then tone it down a bit if they are annoyed, your self esteem is still the same and you deserve it.

Congratulations, awesome person.

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!

This fits more in Mental Health, so I will move this over there. I am glad you are doing better. Have you been diagnosed with anything?

Are you very hyperactive? Feel you aren't needing to sleep as much? Very energetic? If so, it could be a Manic episode, which ties into Bipolar Disorder, or a similar mood disorder.

Either way, I would speak to your doctor since this is a sudden change in your personality.

I'm really glad to hear that you're doing better! It's something you should be very proud of yourself for. It could also be the reason for your narcissistic behavior. You're used to feeling low and not liking yourself much, right? The fact that those feelings are gone is probably a huge shock. Because of that, you could be trying to amplify your new feelings about yourself to make sure they stay.

It's all about finding the balance. Right now, you're at a point where you've gone from one extreme to the other. If you can find the balance between caring about yourself and caring about others, you'll be set! Talk to the friends that you think have been most affected by your behavior. Apologize to them for the way you've acted recently and explain the situation to them. Let them know that you really would like to change the way you've been acting and ask for their help. Chances are, they'll be more than willing to point out the times when you're being a bit self-absorbed and help you get back on the track of caring about others, while caring about yourself.

Remember, you do deserve to have concern for yourself and your well-being. Putting yourself first isn't always a bad thing, as long as you continue to think about others when it is necessary. I know you can do this! You just need to be willing to put in the work.

Take care!

Dude, welcome to the club. Pour yourself a Brewski.

Being at the top of the world is an awesome feeling, don't let anyone knock you down, and if you're proud of who you are, that's all that matters!
