Narcissistic Personality Disorder: a mental condition in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for excessive attention and admiration, troubled relationships, and lack of empathy for others.
Crybaby: one who cries and complains easily or often.
Growing up, my parents were very clear with me, in more ways than one, that I’m accountable for every decision I make in life. I’m not owed anything, I’m not better than anyone, and I have to work hard just like everyone else to stay afloat. That mentality does not permeate the minds of many here in the Western world. Some would call these people liberals, others SJWs (Social Justice Warriors), but I call them narcissistic crybabies.
A narcissistic crybaby is someone who complains about problems that they’re not invested in fixing but will still want all of the empathy, sympathy, and respect in the world. They go on campaigns discussing their plight just to be seen or heard, but when it’s time to take individual accountability, they have a tantrum. And this just doesn’t apply to social/political issues. Many of them refuse to correct everyday behaviors.
Case in point:
- Folks who refuse to eat produce, drink water, and exercise regularly but still complain about the illnesses in their body, medical bills, and medications that never rectify the problem
- Folks who get into unions, have consensual relations, and conceive children but blame those children for the stresses of the world as if those stresses weren’t here before they had them
- Folks who spend money on things they don’t need to impress people who’ll never like them but complain about not being able to handle their basic responsibilities
- Folks who refuse to be productive, waste their years walking the streets, then expect everyone else to take care of them in their latter years
- Folks who make “mistake” after “mistake,” face legal repercussions, and expect everyone to come to their rescue
The conundrum, however, is that when you lay out a blueprint for them, explaining how individual changes can make their lives less miserable, they’ll say that you’re shaming or “victim-blaming.” Because being a victim warrants respect and being a victor is problematic.
We’re all slaves to this matrix, and I’m aware of the frustration that most of us have with this world. So if you want to have a discussion on systemic disenfranchisement and how we should advocate for socialist societies, I’m all ears. If you want to have a discussion on sovereignty and how humans shouldn’t be controlled by the global elite, I’m all ears. But if you just want to cry to me about everyday problems that you create yourself, save it.
The name of the game is survival, which means everyone is out for themselves and their tribe. So take a position, look at the reality of the world for what it is, not for what you want it to be, then assess how you’re going to move in it. Because the truth of the matter is we all have problems and we don’t need yours.
Until Next Time…
