“Another practice for minimizing narcissism is paying attention to the wider social connections in the world.

No one can exist without massive amounts of support from others. Writer Rebecca Walker was mesmerized when she saw the Dalai Lama speak on this topic.As Walker relates, His Holiness “was talking about the myth of independence.

If you are so independent, he asked, who grows your food?
Who sews your clothes, builds your house, makes sure that water comes out of your showerhead?
How were you even born?
The fact is, he said, we have not done one single thing alone, without the help of a small army of
others,
and yet we walk around talking about the necessity and supremacy of independence.
It’s completely irrational.””

~ Jean M. Twenge from The Narcissism Epidemic
