Quora Answers: Narcissists And Jealousy

Do Narcissists Get Jealous Of Others’ Success?

Narcissists are absolutely jealous of others’ success.

That’s why they go to such great lengths to sabotage the lives of anyone they deem to be more successful than themselves.

Whether it’s their spouse, co-worker, friend, or own children, a narcissist despises happiness in others.

They can’t be happy themselves. And they certainly don’t want anyone else to be.

My Malignant Narc ex-husband resented me for my successes and achievements. And also for any talent or capabilities I had that he didn’t.

He couldn’t stand the fact that I excel at speed-reading. He would literally snatch books from my hands and rip the pages out.

He demanded things from me that were next to impossible to achieve.

When I somehow managed to beat the odds, he set the bar even higher.

Far from being happy that I accomplished something that had been destined to fail, he hated me for it.

His pathological envy was all-consuming and very toxic. All narcissists are this way, of course.

If you’re in a relationship with a narcissist, work with one, or have the misfortune to be the child of a narcissist, I highly recommend never telling them of any successes or accomplishments you may achieve.

It will only fuel the jealous fire that burns in them.

And they will stop at nothing to take it from you.

  1. I find the write up very educative and I now know how better to deal with people with this kind of attitude
    Thank you

  2. I sometimes wonder if I have attained some level of Narcissism…

    I even once heard the term “healthy Narcissism”, because some people can be ambitious, and desire achievement.

    And also, sometimes people confuse the two words “jealousy” and “aspiration”.

    Through my vision, there are people, dead people, who were very successful in their lives, that I admire for their work, and wish to even surpass what they’ve done.

    Would that be Narcissism? Perhaps, or perhaps not.

    Also, there is a word for empathetic people called “disappointment”, which I am filled with. “Disappointment” is great in me, because I see so many with their foolish mindsets, doing and thinking the dumbest things… and some will say to me that I wish them to think like me. And yet, I continue with the belief that I can see something that they cannot.

    I don’t want everyone to think like me, because sometimes I can’t stand myself, so how would that make me happy or even content? Lol.

    I sometimes also wonder if I am paranoid with such thoughts.

    I sometimes take what would be deemed as “normal behavior” and turn it into an analogy. People then say to this that I am “overthinking”.

    It’s all very strange.
