We all know that narcissists are damaged since the start. Something happened to them in their childhood or adolescence that made them like that and there’s nothing you can do to fix them. They’ve become so insecure and fixated on themselves that everything they do is about them. Empaths, quite the contrary, are always focused on the people around them. They feel other people’s pain and suffering and want to do everything in their power to make it go away. And that’s where the narcissist and the empath connect, the narcissist is damaged and the empath wants to fix him, make him better. The narcissist takes advantage of this and the empath and uses this attention to power his ego. He’s able to drain the energy of the people they come into contact with, without them even being aware of it. Since the empaths can’t fully understand that not everyone is as they are, they aren’t aware of what this relationship does to them. They believe that everyone is honest and true in their intentions so they can’t see that the narcissist is trying to manipulate them. The narcissist will always try to take control and rise above others.
The more love and affection the empath shows, the more powerful the narcissist becomes. At first, the narcissist will be all rainbows and sunshine, until he gets in control and that’s when the true suffering for the empath will begin. The empath becomes the pray and the narcissist becomes the hunter.
The narcissist will do everything in his power to make the empath feel worthless and keep him down. The more he does it, the more the empath will seek acceptance, validation, and support from the narcissist. That’s when the vicious cycle begins.
This is the reality of the toxic relationship between a narcissist and an empath and there’s nothing anyone can do to make things act out differently. The empath will always try to fix the narcissist and the narcissist will always try to take advantage of the attention and affection of the empath. The narcissist will grow and flourish, while the empath will wither and become traumatized. He will lose all sense of self-respect and confidence and will become a victim of abuse.
Trying to make the narcissist understand the severity of the situation is completely useless. They will always use their charm and charisma to turn the tables on you. They will never admit they’ve done anything wrong. What’s more, they will pretend to be the victims and not the other way around.
The only way out of this toxic relationship for the empath is to find a way out of it. They need to get their mind sorted out and simply leave this abusive relationship because there’s nothing they can do to make things better. Once they realize that they can’t help the narcissist, there’s nothing else they can do. They need to turn around and leave because they can never be happy with a narcissist.
