If you come home bragging about your sister, you’re so happy about your sister, she just got a promotion, expect the narcissist to feel uncomfortable, and they’re going to have to be condescending, passive-aggressive, and they will poo-poo any successes of anyone else because the lie is that they’re superior to you, they’re superior to anybody.
