Narcissists are known to have many sources of supply. But did you know that Narcs can and do organize gatherings of all their supply? I mean, we're talking in the same place. Under the same roof.
A reader commented on a post recently and mentioned how a Narc orchestrates situations where they are hanging out with each other, oblivious. Narcs then can survey the scene triumphantly. Like viewing their conquests all at once.
So it got me thinking. Why do Narcs gather all their sources of supply together like that? And how often does it happen?
Here's what I discovered.
Narcissists are addicted to their supply sources like a drug. They must have them at all costs. They'd do anything to get it. They NEED that "high" from it. And because they are so addicted, they know that if they can get as much of it as possible all at once that it's the ultimate high.
We know that Narcissistic Supply refers to those who the Narc gets attention, adulation and praise from. This supply is the Narc's life force. So without it, they will cease to exist. (Read my post Sources of Narcissistic Supply for more information.)
The supply is there to tend to the Narc's every need, whim and desire. So having multiple supply sources under the same roof will give the Narc all the attention he craves. He will have all his needs met. It's like a queen bee divvying up responsibilities to her workers. The Narc can just sit back and enjoy.
That is, until the supply sources find out that each is a supply source. I can picture it......an interesting discussion (perhaps even argument) would break out between the sources, while the Narcissist sits back and feigns innocence. And while that goes on, the Narc gets all the supply he needs from the exchange he's witnessing.
Have you experienced this kind of situation? What happened when you found out you were in the presence of other sources of supply? Comment below. And as always, I appreciate you for sharing your stories with me.
