Loving yourself is not a sin, but being obsessed with one’s own happiness and letting others to suffer is ‘Narcissism’. This disease is unique as the one who is suffering from narcissism may not realize that he is a ‘Narcissist’ and in some cases a narcissist fails to cure his disease as he refuses to understand the suffering caused by him to others. A narcissist is dangerous to himself and the society. He can be cured if he discovers of what he is suffering with and realizes that only he can heal himself .i.e. ‘Narcissists are the cure to their own poison’.
