do you have any thoughts on my question?
I am trying to understand rage it seems to me that it is not always a reaction to ones "special ness not being acknowledged but it could be a reaction to just not being treated well?
Omigosh. I posted an answer and it is not here. Let me restate my reply
Of course you can have a reaction to not being treated well. Narcissistic rage is a term used for people who have traits of Narcissistic Personality Disorder. The type of rage you are describing is more applicable to poor treatment or even righteous indignation, but it is not narcissistic unless the person is a narcissist. Make sense?
yes but if ones reactions to a situation are over the top that is full of rage because they tap into feelings from ones past such as being abused or not respected this does not mean that one is a narcissist does it? one can have a narcissistic injury without having an unrealistic view of ones self that is one can have rage as a reaction without being a narcissist ? corrrect?
Answer to first question: No.
Answer to Question # XXXXX: No
Answer to second question: yes.
Don't confuse a narcissistic injury with being a narcissist.
However, having said the above, if you have a problem with rage and anger you might wish to get some assistance with the underlying issues.
