Last week, I wrote an article about how obsessively researching narcissism can ruin your life.
A lot of readers said they thought it was the right thing to do, and some shared that they do it because they want to make sure they never attract another narcissist into their lives.
These are common beliefs after finally leaving a relationship with a narcissist. I get it. After all the lies and betrayal and trying to gain back some sense of normalcy, the last thing anyone would want is to find themselves in yet another toxic and dysfunctional relationship.
But, in truth, there is only so much you can learn about narcissism. There may be thousands of blogs out there on the topic, but at a certain point, there’s really nothing new to learn. The science has been done, the behavior has been analyzed, it’s been described in many different languages, and the internet is over-saturated with content revolving around narcissism.
There may be fifty shades of grey, but at the end of the day, it’s just gray.
