I know that it's difficult to diagnose a pathological narcissist and it's even more difficult to convince a narcissist to seek help.
I could not convince my father to get help because he didn't believe that there was anything wrong with him. I would tell him about all the psychological harm and sadness he causes to people around him and he could care less. But that's exactly it, narcissists don't care about others, they only care about themselves.
So would pointing out that narcissism is also damaging to a narcissist encourage them to get help? Because narcissism does hurt the narcissist as well. He or she is often left alone without the support and love of others because of their narcissism.
What do you guys think?
