Narcissists and empaths go together as perfectly as a hand fits a glove. It’s such a beautiful fit.
The beginning of a narc/empath relationship is epic, like a roller coaster climbing to a new majestic height. The world is beautiful when you love with such passion and intensity.
You’re riding high; it all seems so great, so perfect, like a dream – you have certainly have met your match…
Then out of nowhere, the descent happens. What goes up, must come down and, boy oh boy, it goes down with such a thud!
When the narc/empath dynamic starts to play out, it hurts like hell. Fact. It’s so totally unbelievable you think the issue must be you and, like me, you may go on ‘campaign change’. You adjust, accommodate and make allowances – basically, making a rod for your own back.
Eventually, you get to the point where you know you must break away. Yet there is a magnetic pull and you get caught up in the confusion between logic and emotion – why is it so hard to break free? Why do few people truly understand? It’s a difficult battle to fight alone.
It’s a toxic mix. One minute you feel like soul mates, next you feel invisible. When it’s good it’s great! And when it’s bad, you’re so very sad. Push ‘n’ pull, back ‘n’ forth, up ‘n’ down you go. Friends don’t get it, professionals don’t always get it either.
Often we suffer alone and are utterly baffled why the toxic dynamic is so incredibly hard to break.
Fret not, you are not alone.
