Ever wondered about the roots of toxic narcissistic relationships? It begins in infancy when the sense of helplessness and incapability overwhelms the developing child. Sudden separations, excessive frustration, or a lack of understanding can lead to omnipotent fantasies (I don’t need anyone!), shaping narcissistic structures triggered by feelings of envy. Even as narcissistic individuals long for magical connections, the diminishing self-idealization (they may need help with something!) brings awareness of dependency - creating pain and anxiety. This threat reignites the process of narcissistic omnipotent relating.
