The Narcissist and Holidays

When dealing with a Narcissist, don’t be surprised if they dislike going to parties, events, and holiday celebrations. Why? Because they don’t like to fight for the spotlight  they prefer holding court and running all the attention.
They may give you grief about having to go; it rubs them the wrong way to be told when they should be happy for someone else. If they have to go, they’ll ultimately find a way to win at this party game. That faces us with two options for the Narcissist  either hijack the party with kindness as the “perfect helper”, getting them credit and a pat on the shoulder, or at the other extreme, cause problems and ruin the event for everyone.
