Reply To: 'you are too needy' – translation please



Simply put “you are too needy” means I don’t recognize anyone’s needs but my own. Full stop.

That is the real translation. The effect it is meant to cause is for the recipient to doubt themselves, try harder to please the abuser, and drop whatever need they have brought up.

Narcissists and sociopaths prefer to exert as little energy as possible on their targets, so these easy put downs are meant to quash any issue that would demand their expending said energy.
