Dealing with Narcissists

6. They are expert manipulators Although you might have heard how manipulative toxic people are, when you share a relationship with a narcissist you may understand the true meaning of manipulation. They are experts. Without even realizing it, you may be a part of their manipulative tactics. Most people may be able to recognize their patterns, styles, and forms of manipulation like gaslighting, projecting, devaluing, discarding, and so on, but some narcissists can yet find a way to manipulate others, especially their partners. Here are some most common tactics, Playing the Victim – Narcissists can or may use the Victim card or have the victim mentality if they believe that they can gain something out of the guilt-tripping. Narcissists are manipulators and they tend to manipulate people around them to gain benefit. Devaluing – Narcissists would not hesitate to devalue your worth whether it is at home or out in public. They might try to cover up for their mistakes by belittling you. Triangulation – Triangulation is a circumstance, where one person(here the narcissist) tries to get a grip over situations, where they maintain control over their victims or opponents by encouraging differences of opinions and forbidding the other two parties from uniting. They only want to become the centre of the dispute and both parties fight it off to side with them. 7. No Grey Area There is no grey zone for a narcissist, it is either black or white for them, meaning they may only view the situation, person, outcomes, or any judgmental situation in either a black(negative) or white(positive) zone. There is no in-between for them. For instance, There will be no common ground in a competitive situation. It is either they win or lose. And they always prefer to win. So what is theirs and what they feel they desire should be received by them and no one else. Like other people’s attention, validation, and adoration should not be shared by others but solely be focused on them. 8. Pull and Push The narcissist would easily pull you into their world and push you out once their needs are fulfilled. They may take all they desire, in the form of love, respect, and money, and draw you deeper into their narcissistic world. But once they drain your energy, positivity, and love, they may discard you even without blinking. Narcissists discard their partners without feeling guilt or remorse and can move on quickly to their next target with ease. Once the narcissist feels that they have completely used you, they may discard you like you never existed in their world. Narcissists discard their partners just for them to come back begging to take them back into their lives. If you leave the relationship before providing them with what they desire, they may pull you back into the relationship with double force, and thus you may get stuck in their game of pull and push. 9. Everything is about them in the relationship When you are with a narcissist everything is just about them. Every conversation, every action of yours, every topic of discussion. Everything should revolve around them and they should be the focus of every conversation that you have. Thus narcissists are very demanding, and thus everything begins with them, about them, and also ends with them in a relationship. A narcissist is someone who needs attention, praise, ego boost, appreciation, and all such things that may add up to their grandiose image in the form of a narcissistic supply. They would always want to be the center of attraction in all situations. Narcissists have this constant desire to be adored, valued, and appreciated wherever they are. It is always that a relationship works how the narcissist wishes, as they grab the steering wheel of the relationship and drive it as they desire. 10. Split Personalities Dating a narcissist is complicated. The initial stages of a relationship with them may feel like you are walking on rose petals and later stages may be where you may be walking on eggshells. During the initial dating stage, they would shower you with excessive love, compliment you, and make you extremely special. But as the charm and chae of a new relationship fade away, their mask of being the “absolute best partner” falls off and their toxicity seeps in. They switch from being a charming partner to someone you barely know. So if you are experiencing the same situation, you are dealing with a split personality narcissist. 11. Inability to let you in Narcissists have multi-layered personalities, through which they do not let in anyone deeper than a certain level because deep down they have hidden insecurities, anxieties, fear, shame, and guilt. Thus they keep these emotions hidden. 9 Tips To Deal With A Narcissistic Family Member
