Thank you for this clarifying and affirming information. My dad is a grandiose narcissist and has caused me tremendous amounts of trauma. My mom does not have NPD but she has adopted some narcissistic traits due to her 50 year enmeshed & abusive marriage with him. I severed those trauma bones and I’m thriving! Thank you for sharing this necessary knowledge!
