How Christian Counseling Can Help Narcissists
The narcissus flower and personality type were named after a character of Greek legend. How he got to the fountain where he died depends on the story you read, but the original Narcissus became so captivated by the beauty of his own reflection after seeing it in a fountain that he wasted away and died because he couldn’t stop admiring it. The story ends with a narcissus flower growing where he expired.
Modern narcissists may not spend their lives cooing over the beautiful face looking back at them from the water, but that doesn’t make them any less egotistical.
