Narcissistic parents are likely to feel threatened by their children’s success or potential. They get upset when they see their child doing well or pursuing something they are passionate about.
Loving a narcissist is not beautiful. It is not artistic. It is not romantic. It causes nothing but pain and we need to stop focusing on the pain.
He liked having control over me and when he couldn’t have that anymore, he liked to hurt me. And he will hurt you, too.
Look at their actions and the consistency of their actions and not just focus on what they say or how they say it.
The best day in my life by far has been the day you last pulled out your blade on me, the day I finally was able to say enough.
It’s vitally important to be honest with yourself so that you don’t end up feeling like a victim, and so that you have less of a chance of repeating this in a future relationship.
Stop judging people. When you judge someone, not only you pinpoint a flaw in them, you depict your imperfections as well. Your kid might reciprocate your behavior and will consider themselves superior to everyone else
He seems too good to be true. A narcissist is a con artist and when he finds his “target” he morphs into his “Good Self” and becomes the epitome of the perfect lover/partner.
Remember that you deserve a relationship that builds you up, that makes you feel safe, and that brings you happiness and warmth. A person who is narcissistic cannot give this to you.
We all like to dream and plan, but the beginning of a relationship is a bad time to be planning to be together forever.
