    Narcissistic & depressive dispositions typically involve contrary disturbances of dignity. The depressive sucks up accusations she ought to repudiate; the narcissist’s moral skew has him allocate blame he ought to own. Both aim to preserve, yet both instead damage, their dignity.

    The narcissist’s moral skew leaves him vulnerable to a hopeless frustration which becomes its own form of depression. If he can become more realistic about what he is and isn’t owed, & be helped to tolerate & learn from his shame, he’ll find life and others far less frustrating.

    He’ll then be able to reap the rewards of: truer friendships, the wisdom of patience, and the inner dignity that comes from apt modesty. … Narcissistic psychologists, however, tell patients not that they’re forgivable lovable sinners, but that in fact they’re without sin.

    This creates a false self-image which has to be endlessly maintained by the kinds of endless undignified othering, smug worthiness, virtue-signalling, allyships, fake morals of the armchair-crusading sort, etc. which constitute the Twittersphere amongst other loci of modern life.

  3. This is true! It’s so anthropologically dumb. And spiritually unhelpful.
