Sure, narcissists might be ‘cool’ or fun to be around if you’re not close to them but when they’re your lover or family member, they can be a real nightmare. The more you’re around these kinds of people the more you will begin to realize just how much of lies they spread.
Trying to pry the truth from the lips of a narcissist is quite frustrating and a seemingly impossible task. While you might try as hard as you possibly can, they will never give you the answers that you need. Below I am going to go over why narcissists are like this and break things down a little. If you’ve ever been ‘too close’ to a narcissist, you know exactly how real this problem is for those in their lives.
6 Reasons Why You Will Never Get The Truth Out Of A Narcissist:
1. They don’t think you deserve the truth.
Narcissists don’t think that anyone around them deserves the secrets they hold. They keep the truth from others because they don’t think that you’re good enough to be aware of it. They hold things over your head and try to trick you into thinking whatever they see fit.
2. Withholding the truth allows them to confuse you.
Narcissistic people need those around them to be confused and one of their best means of doing that is through lying. They will tell you one thing and then go back and change the story to throw you off. It’s like no matter what you’re unable to pin things down.
3. They don’t want to own up to their own wrongdoings.
Narcissists are not the kind of people to accept their mistakes or correct themselves for that matter. When they do something wrong they blame others or cover it up entirely. They are never responsible for their own actions.
4. To them, lies are more interesting than the truth.
When a narcissist lies about something to make it more interesting they are doing exactly that, trying to make things more interesting. They need attention and will stop at nothing to get it. While you might not see it as interesting, it really sweeps them off of their feet.
5. Keeping the truth from you is a means of gaining power over you.
The more the narcissist knows that you don’t know the more power they feel they have over you. They are all about getting control and being able to hold things over other people’s heads. This is just one of the things they do.
6. They just don’t want to tell you the truth.
Sometimes narcissists just don’t want to give out the truth, and so they don’t. They hide it away and bein believing the lies they’re feeding. This is why so many people tend to believe them.
