Narcissus is one of the first described narcissists in mankind’s history. This is a symbol of a mental illness that is affecting our life more and more with the new generation growing up on social media. Most depression is caused by people who have no empathy or feelings for others and keep one thing in front, themselves. The earlier you recognize these people and learn to avoid them, the happier your life can become.
