I confess that I love all the conscientious people, they are so vanishingly rare. Had to deal with two people this week who screwed up royally, causing others a huge amount of inconvenience because of their actions. Instead of accepting they screwed up, apologizing and moving on, you know, the adult thing; I got a litany of lame, lame, lame excuses, scapegoating and diverting the blame. You screwed up, deal with it, I screw up, we all screw up sometimes, it's part of being human, stop trying to make it not your fault! Anyone over the age of 10 should know how this works.

Unfortunately Narcissists are gonna narcissist. It's what they do. They are never the problem, they will never be the problem. They don't apologize because they are perfect and everyone should just learn to worship at their alter.

if some people were never taught and may have been punished severely when they were children for being anything but perfect. A deep fear that never went away. What a sad thing. How does something like that get unlearned?

You’re right. It can be very hard for someone who was treated that way as a child to develop the self confidence they need in order to be able to accept responsibility for their own actions. However, that doesn’t mean that they don’t have to do it. We’re each responsible for our own life, although some of us have a much harder battle to fight to overcome childhood abuse.
