We all will at some point come across a narcissist on one occasion or another. The closer they get the more damage they end up doing.
Sometimes we find ourselves head over heels in way too far with the narcissist before we realize exactly what we are dealing with. They are without a doubt not easy to spot, that much should be clear for us all. Narcissistic personality disorder is a lot rarer than modern society acts as if it is but there are some people who have far more narcissistic tendencies than they should. Those people should still be treated in the same manner.
Narcissistic people are kind and generous at first but once they have you where they want you they become arrogant and use you to get what they want. They think they are better than everyone else and they will only give as much as they have to in order to get whatever it is they are working towards out of you.
They will manipulate you and take and take and take until you basically have nothing left. They will break you down and cast you aside as if you never meant anything to them at all. They love to push the buttons of the people who care for them and while they might be charming at first they are a real nightmare once they get comfortable.
While this might sound like ‘the easy way’ out this is the only way to truly deal with a narcissist, CUT TIES. The best way to deal with them is to get rid of them. Jump ship and cut them completely out of your life. Whether they are friends, family, lovers, or anything else they do not deserve a place in your life.
If they are someone you have to be around, for instance, a co-worker or something of the sort, limit the exposure you have to them. Don’t let them have any kind of power over you and remember that when they want you to do something you don’t have to say yes, no is always an option. If the narcissist is someone you have already gotten close with it can be really hard to cut them off but that is without a doubt the best method. You should never force yourself to stay in any kind of relationships or friendships that are not benefiting you.
