What refreshing insight, Fledgling. I agree that some people are just wrong in their behaviors - doesn't necessarily make them a narcissist.

I'm also in total agreement that walking away is a viable option to remove one's Self from negativity - ANY negativity. The gal that I referred to appeared to be so concerned and caring, and she is actually a very angry, bitter, spiteful person, after looking back on the things that she did and the manner in which she did them. I had to turn away without a word, because I had asked her to keep her constant criticisms to herself and she just was incapable or unwilling to do so, even if it was in her own best interest.

Forgiveness - forgiveness was necessary for me, but it may not be appicable to others, I believe. I was listening to this amazing program on NPR, yesterday, on "Talk of the Nation" that I really want transcripts of. It was a discussion on a grass-roots idea that victims of violent crimes actually meet their perpetrators in prison, face-to-face, for dialogue. It's not being met with much enthusiasm from prison officials and it's a shame. At any rate, the woman who was talking spoke so eloquently about forgiveness and that it is not a requirement for victims to forgive. Now, her background as a victim was this: a man broke into her home, tied up her husband, her, and their daughter. The man raped their daughter in front of them and then shot her husband dead. I had to really work at not getting hysterical for this woman's losses - I cannot imagine, in my worst nightmares, what she endured and Survived. For that brave, courageous woman to get up every day and go through the motions of living after having Survived such a horrid, senseless crime makes the term, "forgiveness," seem so ludicrous!
