Why do narcissists get so jealous when you succeed?

They get angry because they feel insecure and other people’s success reminds them of where they believe they have failed. Later they act as if nothing happened because they are too insecure to apologize without feeling deep shame and self-hatred. They are also afraid that if they apologize, you will take that as an opportunity to devalue and shame them—which is probably a projection of what they would do if the situation were reversed.
