Definition of Narcissism
The name "narcissism" originates from the Greek mythology story of Narcissus (Narkissos) the son of Cephissus and the nymph Liriope. He was a beautiful young man who rejected many lovers including the desperate advances of the nymph Echo.
One day when Narcissus was out walking Echo secretly followed him. She longed to speak to him but was unable to speak first. Narcissus heard her footsteps and called out "Who's there?", only then could Echo answered him by repeating his words, "Who's there?" Eventually Echo showed herself and ran to embrace the lovely youth. He pulled away from the nymph rejecting her and told her to leave him alone. Without realizing Narcissus broke Echo's heart.
The love sick nymph asked the goddess Artemis to punish Narcissus and she agreed. While out walking one day Narcissus came upon a clear pond, as he knelt to drink Artemis made him fall in love with his own reflection. Narcissus pined away looking at his own reflection until he finally died. What grew in that place was the beautiful flower that bears his name, the narcissus.

Positive traits of Narcissism
There is an great deal information about the negative side of narcissism but very little about the positive traits of narcissism. Freud believed that we are all born with narcissistic traits and that they are an essential part of us. I believe that healthy narcissism assists us in many ways, and without it we can not balance our own needs in relation to the people around us. Narcissistic behaviour can also be a learned behaviour passed down from generation to generation.
Understanding Narcissism disorder
As Sigmund Freud wrote:
"Unexpressed emotions will never die. They are buried alive and will come forth later in uglier ways"
