Welcome, dear readers, to my blog on narcissists & how they are created not born and how narcissism can impact on their close relationships. As a psychic coach, I’ve had the opportunity to work with many individuals who’ve been affected by the behavior of a narcissistic partner, family member, or friend. In this blog, I will discuss the characteristics of narcissism and how these traits can lead to negative outcomes in relationships.
Narcissism is a personality disorder characterized by a grandiose sense of self-importance, a need for admiration, and a lack of empathy for others. Narcissistic individuals often have an inflated sense of their abilities and accomplishments, and they may seek constant validation and attention from others. They can be charming and charismatic, but they also tend to be manipulative and self-centered.
In relationships, narcissistic individuals can be difficult to deal with. They may expect their partner to cater to their every need and desire, and they may become angry or hostile when their expectations are not met. They may also use emotional manipulation or gaslighting tactics to control their partner or justify their own behavior.
Narcissistic individuals may also struggle with intimacy and emotional connection. They may be more interested in their own needs and desires than those of their partner, and they may struggle to empathize with their partner’s feelings or perspective. This can lead to a lack of emotional intimacy and a breakdown in communication in the relationship.
In some cases, narcissistic individuals may become abusive towards their partner. This can take the form of emotional or verbal abuse, physical violence, or sexual coercion. It is important to recognize the signs of abuse and seek help if you or someone you know is experiencing abuse in a relationship.
So, how can you deal with a narcissistic partner or family member? It can be challenging, but setting clear boundaries and prioritizing your own needs and well-being is important. You may also want to seek support from a therapist or counselor who can help you navigate the challenges of dealing with a narcissistic individual.
In conclusion, narcissism can have a significant impact on close relationships. If you are dealing with a narcissistic partner or family member, it is important to recognize the signs and seek support. By setting clear boundaries and prioritizing your own needs, you can protect yourself from the negative effects of narcissistic behavior.
It’s highly unlikely a narcissist will realise they need help so your options are to cut them out of your life or learn to accept them as they are provided they’re not being abusive. Work on your own healing so you can release any trauma you may have, if you don’t you will see health issues as a result of the trauma.
Give a narcissist some empathy though because they’re deeply insecure even if they don’t recognise it, they crave love & attention & have most likely been starved of that affection in their early years, although sometimes having parent who over-indulged them can start their narcissist journey.
However, my role tends to be with people like you who’ve been deeply affected by a narcissist, it may be your confidence has been wrecked, or that you have no self-worth. You may have health issues which are rooted in the beliefs your relationship with this person created. Often I find myself working with those who’ve been affected by narcissists because it’s wrecked them mentally & emotionally.
Thank you for reading, and I wish you all the best on your journey towards healing and growth.
