Every addict of every kind has Flying Monkeys.

Elvis and Jacko are just two examples of people who chose - yes, chose - Flying Monkeys instead of the genuine love and respect they could have had from real family and real friends. There are many more, both famous and not.

But the story didn't strike me that way at all. As I mentioned above, it's our four main characters who represent the NPDs because they're the ones looking for others to supply them with what they need instead of looking inward to find it. But the Wizard - now, think about it: The Wizard is first shown as nothing but an ugly and very angry face, shouting and growling and erupting in fire and fury, living as a recluse and trying to get rid of all these NPDs who keep trying to Get Things From Him.

He's not trying to get anything from anybody. He hides from everyone and tries to get them to leave him alone.

He clearly looks to be angry, lonely and suffering. They live for constant attention and emotional feeding from others. They are the polar opposite of the Wizard.

To me, the Wizard represents the spouses and adult children of all the charming, sweet-talking, innocent-looking NPDs who have been tormenting them to death for years. Finally, when the Wizard's true form is revealed as a gentle and quite ordinary man - who is a fraud only in the sense that he cannot give the NPDs what they want any more than anyone else can - he is able to get the NPDs to look inside for what they want, and then he is able to get free of them and go home himself.

It's left to Glinda to help Dorothy with the biggest hurdle of all - understanding where Home really is. I don't think the Wizard represents a full-blown Narcissist at all.

That's The Wicked Witch. The angry, hideous, reclusive and lonely Wizard represents the NPD's tormented and isolated victims. I was thinking about where Toto figures in the story. I think that because Toto is an animal - a normal, natural animal, not a fantasy creature like the Lion - he therefore represents the kind of innocence and purity of spirit that can never be contaminated by narcissism. He can neither be one nor respond to one. It is in protecting Toto that Dorothy finds the courage to destroy the Wicked Witch, and it is Toto who reveals that the angry, blustering, supernatural-looking wizard is also a "real" creature who should be treated as such - not merely used as a source of supply for NPDs, which is what left him raging, suffering and reclusive.

We know that such a change happens only rarely, if ever, in the real world — maybe because NPD is never treated as the addiction it really is.

Maybe we should all insist that an NPD start looking within to find positive traits and a loving Home - and maybe they would. Surely that is a better life than being like the Wicked Witch, who was indeed powerful and the focus of attention but was also despised and feared and alone with only thralls and Flying Monkeys for company - and they cared nothing for her in the end. Surely we wish better for the people we love, whether they are NPDs or not.

Perhaps especially if they are NPDs. That was a really fascinating and entertaining read. I wonder what other movies like this have similar symbolism. I loved it and very fitting. I can't believe no one has replied to this. Just because I'm crazy doesn't mean I'm wrong. Here's my Dx. I really like making lists.

I struggle with the concept that a person can self-validate. It's not even just that I don't know how, but that I can't even grasp that it exists.

But I'll bet that you can find those things within yourself if you look again, and validate that of course you can do good and positive things that simply let you feel good about yourself. Start small!

Thank you. And please know that by saying 'thank you', you allowed me to feel something positive about myself - you allowed me to feel that maybe I helped somebody else today, even if only a little. Hope that makes sense! I haven't seen the Wizard of Oz for years, think I'll watch it again. Only one thing I disagree with, you say; Elvis and Jacko are just two examples of people who chose - yes, chose - Flying Monkeys instead of the genuine love and respect they could have had from real family and real friends.

Could Jacko have had genuine love from his real family?

Surely that was his big problem his family was so dysfunctional. His violent bullying father put him on stage whilst he was very young and beat him if he didn't get it right. He never learnt to play and socialize with other kids, it was just work, work, work.

He was not close to his siblings, when his career took off big time they got left behind maybe causing resentment creating more rifts between them. I don't think he chose Flying Monkeys I think they were just better than no one at all. Jacko probably went low contact to get away from them and their toxic legacy. I sure he yearned for a loving family. He was abused by his 'real family' that's why he was so messed up.

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.In therapy we need to be willing to work through our own blind spots, our shadow self as Carl Jung would call it.

I am sure there was resistance, anger, bargaining, etc. On the home stretch of the healing process, coaching can be an invaluable tool for maintaining self-care and goals that lead to empowerment. I realized I am surrounded by them! Additionally, The Wizard of Oz and Other Narcissists underscores the fact that narcissistic personality disorder frequently takes a long time to identify, and even specialized experts often miss it.

Those who come to love them often feel desperately empty themselves because their love is not returned in a full and easy way.
