This is something that really stood out of me from Dr Sarno's book. I feel that I have both narcissism and low self esteem. On one hand I know I have low self esteem thru out my daily social life, I always feel inadequate, not up to par etc. On the other hand I feel like a Narcissist in my home life, I have no responsibilities like Im some king and get annoyed very easily of those closest to me. I was aware of these feelings even before TMS. I feel bad for the way of treat my closest ones, I feel like they deserve much better, not just in the way I treat them but overall in what I provide to them in terms of finances. So Im treating them badly but at the same time I want to make them proud thru money or career/academic achievements. I do feel that I have some bitterness towards my family for somethings that happen when I was younger but overall I know they been great and have loved me. My personal life is just really low at the moment as well, I don't feel like Im worthy of anybody, also unlike my home life, in my Social life/Work life Im very polite, I don't show much emotions. All of this I think creates lots of tension thats manifest itself into TMS. Anybody have any tips on this?
