People with strong narcissistic tendencies hate seeing others do well. There are several reasons for this, and we will explore some of them in this article.
First and foremost, true happiness comes from within. Narcissistic people are unable to feel genuine happiness because they severely, or even completely, lack a sense of genuine self.
As a result, they are chronically miserable people who desperately try to feel better by constantly managing their fragile and skewed sense of self-esteem. They seek certain external rewards that they perceive as increasing their status: expensive things, sex, power, money, even family, and so on. Sadly, this is not enough to feel happy. They don’t understand that true happiness, contentment, and fulfillment comes from within.
