Are psych patients ever better? You could be very careful in your observation and thinking and all it takes is someone challenging and critiquing your perception telling you that you are wrong. That means the person who is saying this is right, but, it’s only the two of you present. There’s no referee.
The person saying this might not have even been there to hear or see said situation. They just don’t like you enough or believe in you enough or perhaps they automatically side with the other person.
In the end, it is a battle you lost, right or wrong. Tough pill to swallow. This is where The Serenity Prayer comes in.
Many years ago I had a roommate who used to say, “He who laughs last,” in a very smug and complacent way. Saying this is self-satisfying. It’s in line with The Truth Comes Out In The End. She wasn’t going to accept defeat. I admired this roommate for this.
So as for me I am now taking a back seat in the situation. I lost gracefully. I acknowledged losing but I still said that I felt I was right. Maybe time will tell.
Is losing better than being a Narcissist? I hope so. I believe in Gods eyes it is.
At the same time I also believe that Narcissists have easier lives.
It is what it is.
