After listening to Sam Vaknins youtube videos and writings, and recognizing myself completely in these, I now consider myself to be a narcisistic person who have turned paranoid agrresive and delusional as my failure to socialize became apparent.

I have heard voices though, although no currently, and none for the last 3 years.

Its easy to label this as lack of insight, but I feel that Vaknins stuff fits my life perfectly.

Getting life philosophy/perspective lined out not only brings great insight but peace of mind as well.

Conceit, vanity, entitlement, superiority complexes, narcissism these are common in a lot of people.

As a schizo it’s even less unusual to deal with these things. Throw grandiosity in there.

I myself once thought that I was a nercissist. I even got a book on it and agree that most things it says. It’s been almost 10 years since then, I even forgot about thinking myself as one.
It’s hard to understand yourself but I think it’s a good idea to share your thoughts with someone close to you, and see what they say.
Sometimes what you think your problmes are and the real problmes are different…

That old cliché about there being a fine line between love and hate is particularly true of our relationship with ourselves.

Very interesting. He described Mom, Pop and myself a lot.

I don’t believe I’m suffering from an exaggerated form of self-love… rather a devoted form of self-respect.

Everyone should love themselves. It’s when they love themselves more than they love any one else that issues will probably arise.

Self respect! Yeah man if people respected themselves/each other this world would be a different place.
