Of Emotional Abuse & Narcissistic Personality Disorder (Part1)

As espoused in my previous articles, emotional abuse is a form of abuse that is recognised under the Domestic Violence Act Cap 28:05. The said Act however implicitly acknowledges narcissism, it does not explicitly enunciate on narcissism.

A narcissist is someone who has been diagnosed with Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD). Narcissists may either be covert or overt. Narcissistic personality disorder is one of several types of personality disorders-it’s a mental condition in which people have an exaggerated sense of importance, a bottomless need for excessive attention and admiration, troubled relationships and a lack of empathy for others.

It is noteworthy to mention that we may occasionally exude one or a few qualities of a narcissist. However, that does not make us narcissists. A narcissist is someone who radiates the narcissistic qualities described herein on a frequent basis. There are many theories that purport to explain how narcissists got into being.
