We’ve all seen, or perhaps some of us have witnessed, one form of abuse in relationships, and there is nothing romantic about it. Whether we believe it or not, there are narcissists in almost 75% of today’s associations, and many look for a healthy way out. Do narcissists understand what it means to have a healthy relationship with their partners?
There’s often a solid push to stamp our needs and rules on our foreheads to enforce our superiority and authority. This behavior is typical of narcissists. They are so concentrated on themselves that they cannot really “see” their partner as a person but instead as a means to fulfill their desires.
Narcissistic partners can be fascinating and enticing, but don’t get it twisted because arrogance, pride, injustice, and manipulations lie beneath that new smile and calm eyes. These are all the watchwords of a narcissist. His mental cognition is toxic, and his behavioral patterns are psychotic.
Narcissists are always right, they know better, and every other person is wrong or not good enough. Partners of narcissists are always walking on eggshells. They constantly have to defend themselves and, most times, lose their identities in the long run.
Dating a narcissist is a big deal. They are controlling in any relationship they find themselves in. They are easily angered, obsessively jealous, dramatic, and seeking attention over everything. We mustn’t also forget that they play the victim all the time.
The grave consequences are usually substantial and affect the partner’s daily functioning. Considering the mental damages before deciding to date a narcissist is imperative.
Is a narcissistic personality bullying you? Is there a way out?
Narcissists are likable at the beginning. They seem fun, engaging, and easygoing. This discovery is why many people fall victim to their abuse.
If you’ve found yourself cut into the web of a narcissist in the name of a relationship, you need to understand what you’ve gotten yourself into. Living in denial won’t fix their negative behavioral patterns. Acceptance brings deliverance.
. First, ask yourself, “how did I make such a decision? Am I self-centered? Do I want someone to always be in control of my life? Does my self-confidence blossom in the lights of another?
The answers to these questions will help you set the proper boundaries as you plan your way out of the relationship.
. Reflect on every conscious and unconscious motive your narcissist partner makes. Please don’t get comfortable with his negative behavioral patterns. Your voice counts, and you must learn to speak up for yourself. Be in control of your life and the events that occur in it. Live intentionally and seek mental help immediately.
. Learn to think for yourself. Don’t glorify or celebrate his ego, superiority, and flaws. Develop your mental strength and self-confidence. Love yourself enough to know when you are being loved and tolerated.
. Provoke your partner to change their technique of relating. Quit covering up their abuses and stupidity. There is nothing beautiful about self-hate. You don’t have to hate yourself to please your narcissistic partner.
Don’t be a victim. When it comes to mental development, recognizing your value and separating from self-attacking attitudes is crucial.
If your happiness is compromised in the relationship, you have every animal right to get out.
Your mental wellness is non-negotiable.
Blessings and Love ❤️
