 Alot of people on here - my ex was a narcissist, my sister's a narcissist. Everyone that's wronged them is obviously a narcissist. They read something on the internet & now think they're qualified psychiatrists.

Unfortunately some people just think they're entitled is all

Yep my in-laws do this. When ever there is a legal matter, computer or phone issue. I’m their best friend but usually they couldn’t care less about me.

 Are you a lawyer ?

My sister does.
But her loss really because everyone just distanced themselves from her.
She doesn't want family to support her, unless she gets financial gain out of it.
It's a sad situation really.

 My brother in law is only our family when it suits him
