Have you ever told someone that you needed comfort, but somehow during the conversation, you ended up supporting and reassuring the other person, and you walked away feeling even worse than before?
here’s a reason why this happens, and it’s not anything that you did or said, rather, it’s a subtle, unconscious thing that everyone does. Most doing it are unaware it is even occurring.
It’s called “conversational narcissism.”
And yes, it’s a real thing.
