No, they sure can’t love anyone but themselves, and this is a false self love. Deep down, they feel inept and are very insecure. Narcissists are made when someone dotes on them, spoils them, gives them all their time, love and attention, and this is given without them really having to earn it. They aren’t taught proper discipline, and are saved from the consequences of their wrongful actions. They learn that love, adoration, material things, and such are just given to them automatically in excess. When they begin to venture out into the real world on their own, they immediately will seek someone who will fill the place that their parent or grandparents had. A victim in other words. They take take take, but never truly give. They don’t understand what it means to be responsible, so they find someone they can use. They’ll say whatever they need to say, in order to get what they want, but ultimately, it’s always about them. Any inconvenience life throws them is handed over to their victim, if the victim should protest this, they blame, and become verbally abusive or physically abusive. They lie, often pathologically, hide behind various masks to impress people, manipulate, and bribe to get thru life on someone else’s time, and dime. They’re never authentic, never real.
