Self esteem is believing in yourself. Narcissism is believing in your reflection. One is a clear realistic reference that leads to confidence and sensible decisions; the other is a non-realistic grandiose confidence that has no reference to reality and leads to arrogant decisions which serve nothing but sustaining that image. Self esteem can exist without a person to mirror. Narcissism needs another party to verify one┤s existence (in a false way, realistic affirmation and feedback is normal to need).
Freude, sch├Âner G├Âtterfunken Tochter aus Elysium, Wir betreten feuertrunken, Himmlische, dein Heiligtum! Deine Zauber binden wieder Was die Mode streng geteilt; Alle Menschen werden Br├╝der, Wo dein sanfter Fl├╝gel weilt.
unhealthy narcissism is when you love yourself because you think others don't or wouldn't. That's love where there's only You and you've rejected Others. so narcissistic love is "screw you, World, you brought me nothing but disappointment so I'll love myself for both of us"
Healthy self-love is when you accept both poles as equaly worthy, You and Others, so you don't love yourself because you're better than others, you just love yourself, it's more self acceptance than self-love. You just are.
