Awareness is Key to Self-Empowerment
Having a self-absorbed perfectionist for a boss can be a huge headache and even detrimental to our health and well-being in larger ways.
Interacting with them can erode our confidence and sense of reality as we’re constantly mistreated and even blamed for their own failures.
While there is a spectrum to just how bad they can be, we need to take very good care of ourselves when in a toxic work environment that includes the option of quitting.
A Narcissistic Boss destroys your morale and confidence one layer at a time.
You're either with them or against them...all good or all bad.
You are initially enchanted by their charm but this can turn into manipulation or entrapment if you ever disagree with them.
You are blamed and even ridiculed for their errors and failures.
Your ideas are stolen by them. You're expected to work harder and longer hours than them.
You are there to give to them and they never intend to give back. They act like they are entitled to your labor.
The context of your life and your feelings are never taken into account, unless they use it as manipulation.
