The Inevitably Toxic Relationship Between A Narcissist And An Empath

The Inevitably Toxic Relationship Between A Narcissist And An Empath

Empaths and narcissists are polar opposites. Although some believe that opposites do attract, the truth is that if two people have core dynamics that differ to the extreme, there can never be a healthy relationship.

Narcissists are emotionally wounded people who continue the cycle of pain by inflicting damage on those around them. Because the empath is a natural healer, they will do everything they can to ease the suffering of the narcissist- even if they do not want the help.

Empaths will understand the real reason behind the mask the narcissist wears, and this is why they continue to forgive them.

However, it is essential for everyone to remember that you can not fix another person; you cannot force them to become the person you know they have the potential to be. They have to be ready to make that choice for themselves, and unfortunately, most narcissists do not see a need to change.

Unfortunately, empaths tend to be attracted by narcissists, because at first, it's all about a false self. Narcissists almost always present a false self, where they seem charming and intelligent, and even giving until you do not do things their way, and then they get cold, withholding and punishing.

When an empath experiences the manipulation and control tactics, they might wonder if it is all in their head, or what they could do to remedy the situation. And this is where the most significant issue comes into play. Empaths find it nearly impossible to accept that some things are just not theirs to fix. It isn't their responsibility to make sense of what a narcissist does or says because there is not any sense to it.

Everything the narcissist does is for their personal gain. They do not see other people as friends or partners, they see them as pawns- only something to use when they need it.

Empaths are genuine and polite people, so they expect others to behave in the same way.

When an empath first encounters a narcissist, it'll open their eyes to a world they did not know existed.

A world of confusion and denial eventually makes for an exhausting relationship.

Empaths can tolerate many things as long as they have time to recharge their batteries and recover, but even they reach their limits.

There can't be a healthy balance between a narcissist and an empath because there is no balance of giving and taking. The empath always gives, and the narcissist takes.

When it is time to leave, all empaths should remember this: You are stronger than you know, and the narcissist (and their trauma) is not a reflection of who you are or what you are capable of.
