The primary mark of a narcissist is that no matter what they do, they will refuse to admit they’ve done anything wrong. It’s like they can’t. Even partial admissions are clouded with justifications, even when no justification exists. Usually, they’ll just flat out deny it, even when the evidence is right there. That’s the gaslighting they’re known so well for.
After Adam, because of this, I decided the only kind of person that I don’t like is the one who can’t admit when they’re wrong. Refusing to acknowledge it doesn’t make it go away. It just renders you incapable of change. And then you’re stuck doing the same harmful things over and over and over again to more people. What makes a person evil is the failure to identify their evil. All else can be forgiven.
