Many of us have seen the Narcissist’s prayer. It is the pattern of projection, lies, and deflection used by character disturbed and toxic people. I thought I would write something to counter it. That is, an affirmation of healthy responses.
A Narcissist’s Prayer
That didn’t happen.
And if it did, it wasn’t that bad.
And if it was, that’s not a big deal.
And if it is, that’s not my fault.
And if it was, I didn’t mean it.
And if I did…
You deserved it.
Prayer Against Narcissism
The past is full of many things both good and bad.
The truth may not always make me feel great about myself, but I accept it.
Regardless of the size of a problem, I can stay focused on finding solutions.
I take ownership of my faults, and I let others own their faults.
I accept that regardless of intent solving the problem comes first.
I show myself kindness, love, and compassion.
