What is narcissism and why is it a problem?

Narcissism is a personality disorder that is characterized by an excessive need for admiration and self-admiration. People with narcissism often have a grandiose view of themselves and believe that they are superior to others. This can lead to problems in relationships, as narcissists often expect excessive levels of admiration and attention from those around them.

Additionally, people with narcissism may be excessively self-promoting, expecting favorable treatment and opportunities without providing anything in return. As a result, those around them may feel taken advantage of or abused. Narcissism can be difficult to identify, as it often manifests itself in seemingly positive ways. However, if left unchecked, narcissism can lead to many damaging effects on both the individual and their relationships.

The five stages of a narcissistic breakdown

  • denial
  • anger
  • bargaining
  • depression
  • acceptance

Denial is the first stage and typically lasts for the first few weeks or months after the person realizes they have a problem. They may not believe that they possess any traits or behaviors that could be considered narcissistic, and will insist that everything is still normal in their relationship.

Anger is the next stage and typically occurs when the person begins to realize that their delusions are not going to be accepted. They may become frustrated and lash out at anyone who tries to explain or help them resolve the problem. This can often result in significant damage to both parties involved in the relationship. After anger, there is usually a period of rebuilding where both parties work to rebuild trust and rebuild their relationship.

The next stage of a narcissistic breakdown is bargaining. The individual will attempt to convince others that they are worth their weight in gold, even if this means making compromises or giving up important aspects of their own life.


Next, the individual enters into a period of depression, in which they may lose interest in activities that used to bring them pleasure and feel overwhelmed by their feelings of inadequacy and self-doubt.

The hallmark of a narcissistic breakdown is an intense feeling of self-doubt and unworthiness. In the final stages of a breakdown, the individual begins to accept that they are flawed and imperfect. They may also start to see their flaws in a new light, and learn to appreciate their own strengths. This process can be difficult, but it is ultimately beneficial for the narcissist.
