Sometimes mirroring is fun - or direct humor.
Direct humor after the created you comment is: did you rest on the 7th day baby? Pointing out the God complex.
Or - next time out with friends. See how well he takes it in reverse:
"I was kind of his Gallileo - before me e thought he was center of the universe. But I've whittled him down to where he only thinks te moon revolves round him.
Get his FRIENDS to laugh - hard - he wont brush that off.
UOTE=mosquito;891602]We are a newly married couple, together for 4 and married for 1 year. Please don't judge me on my marriage choice, I love my husband and would like to be together with him; my love is not unconditional, but first I want to know that I've tried everything and that's why I'm asking for help here.
I have the feeling he's disrespecting me very subtly. I've had problems with my self-esteem and he's a true narcissist - he picks on people (me, his friends, everyone) but he does it soo subtly that many of them don't even notice.
He does that to me. He will occasionally drop something like "Look what I did and then look what you did", and at first I'm like "Ok, this is his usual boasting self, no biggie", but a day later my alarm rings "Why is he always disrespecting my efforts?!". The most offending thing he said to me (a few times) was "I did so much for you, I've practically created you, babe!"
The problem is when I tell him I feel disrespected, he tells me he's joking and that I get offended too easily due to my low self esteem. I somewhat am very afraid of being disrespected and I feel like a total fool if I don't stand up for myself. But he DOES tell it in a joking matter, never mean or anything, so I get confused by the situation and I react inadequately to it.
I've even tried to offend him in purpose, to see how he reacts, but he just brushes it off! I don't want a love-hate relationship where we just throw subtle insults at each other. Any advice on what I should do when I feel disrespected, even a little? Does ignoring what he says = no self respect?[/QUOTE] Posted via Mobile Device
