There’s so much information about narcissism out there. You can google narcissism and the information is overwhelming.
I can tell you from personal experience that the longer you keep a narcissistic person in your life the worse your life will get. Don’t be the bigger person because the narcissist really doesn’t care. They enjoy hurting and damaging other humans and even animals. It doesn’t matter how the narcissist became that way and besides it is not your responsibility to figure it out. The responsibility is on them. Most of the time the narcissist never changes because they do not have any awareness of their own destructive behavior and not any interest in self-awareness.
Here are some red flags that are attributable to being a narcissist:
- they take advantage of others
- feels superior to just about everyone
- needs constant praise and if you don’t they will try to destroy you
- your needs don’t matter
- cares only about themselves
- very destructive to you and not caring at all
These are just a few red flags, but if this kind of behavior is consistent there’s a good chance you are dealing with a narcissist. Feel free to research the subject for more information.
My advice to you, and I can tell you from experience, that it is best you leave to protect yourself. It is not likely they will change. It’s best you go on to have a better life.
