ALL ABOUT NARCISSISM ✨💕🌱 — this thread is dedicated to teaching you the ins & outs of narcissism & how you can overcome.
Narcissistic Personality Disorder is defined as someone who lacks empathy for others, and they crave admiration. They’re often described as pathological liars, self-centered, manipulative, controlling.
We have this notion that narcissists love themselves. In reality they actually hate themselves, their toxic & manipulative ways covers up their unhealed trauma & insecurities. The more they hurt you, the less you can see how hurt they are.
When dealing with a narcissist it’s important to remember that it’s hard to empathize with them. They lack empathy. So you being emotional (cause them to use your emotions to their advantage) this stems from a toxic mother growing up.
Narcissistic people (men & women) have two different personas. In the general public they’re loveable, kind, and often quiet, but once they’re behind closed doors, they’re very explosive, condescending & demanding.
Narcissists are perfectionists. Everything has to be done the way they see fit. If anything is outside of their control, they’ll blame the closest person to them & play victim.
If you’ve ever dated a narcissist you would know that they THRIVE off of empathetic people. Since they lack empathy, they’ll manipulate and control those who have empathy to their advantage. It’s like a drug to them.
So what do you do now? First things first don’t give a narcissist ammunition. They’ll use your vulnerability against you. Be very careful on what you share or expose to them because during conflict they WILL use it against you.
Don’t believe everything you see. Narcissist thrive off of their image. They’ll work day & night to come off as perfect to the public. We can have compassion for narcissists’ wounds yet not be taken in by the smoking mirror.
Don’t expect for a narcissist to take responsibility. It’s very hard for them to see fault in their actions. They’re great at deflecting. Call them out!
Don’t take it personal! Narcissists tend to view others as either potential threats. They seek advantage over everybody. While their worst mistreatment is often reserved for those closest to them, nobody is immune from narcissists’ manipulations.
I was once a victim of a narcissist relationship. It’s important that if it’s leading to physical violence, that you begin to create an escape plan. Begin the process of getting out as quickly as possible. ❤️
