The narcissist believes he is the main character in his own movie. Everyone else has a supporting role– everyone around him becomes a “type.” You know how in every romantic comedy, there’s always the funny friend who helpes the main character figure out her relationship? In the movie, her whole existence is to be there fore the main character. But in real life, that funny friend has her own life; she might even be the main character in her own movie, right? Well the narcissist wouldn’t be able to grasp that. Her friends are always supporting characters, that can be called at any hour of the night, that will always be interested in what she is wearing, or what she did. That funny friend isn’t just being kind, she doesn’t just want to help– she’s personally interested in the narcissist’s life. Of course she is.
