Having a narcissist in your life is one of the most difficult challenges you can come across, especially if it’s your partner. This toxic person thrives on your misery, so they will do whatever it takes to make you feel inferior and dependent on them.
That’s how they keep their victims hooked.
People with strong personality can’t tolerate someone or something because they know they deserve better than that.
They know what they want and will never settle for less. And, that’s their secret when it comes to dealing with narcissists and beating them in their own game.
What Is the Problem with Narcissist?
Oh, there are so many problems with these people that we don’t even know where to start. They are selfish and self-centered people who manipulate everyone around them just to get what they want. And, they don’t care about anyone’s feelings, wishes, or desires but theirs.
They feel like they are the center of the world and that praising them and making them feel superior is other people’s job, especially their partner’s. They have terrible behavior and aren’t trustworthy, but their fake charm can trick you into believing whatever they want, even that they are good.
That’s their game, and they are playing it every day. So, if you have such a partner, your life is probably a living hell. The worst part is that they make you believe it’s your fault for everything.
They make you doubt yourself and lose your confidence and self-respect. In other words, they brainwash you until you become half the person you used to be.
Narcissists lie, use people, and destroy them without blinking an eye. They are not even aware of how much emotional and psychological damage they cause to those around them, especially their partner.
That’s why narcissism is considered to be a personality disorder and mental condition.
But, Not Everyone Can Be Easily Fooled
Some people might never realize that they have a narcissistic partner, but others can sniff them out right away. And, there are these people who need some time to figure it out.
Mentally strong people don’t fall for the narcissist’s tricks. The narcissist’s charm can’t fool them, so they know when someone is trying to manipulate them. That’s why they don’t bother to spend their time trying to please them.
Strong people are willing to do whatever it takes to cut that person out of their life. And, they don’t play the victim but rather stand up to them. They do this for themselves and others in order to protect everyone against the evil intentions of the narcissist.
People with a strong personality will challenge the narcissist in their life, showing them that they are not afraid of their mind tricks. What narcissists usually do in these cases is playing the victim, but this won’t work for mentally strong people.
They’ll refuse to play the narcissist’s game, cutting them out of their life for good.
The Bottom Line
Although dealing with a narcissistic partner is not easy for anyone, mentally strong people do whatever it takes to expose them without trying to spare their feelings. And, they will continue doing it until they ostracize the narcissist from them and everyone they care about.
If you have a narcissist in your life, remember that they don’t own you. Start appreciating your life and time more until you realize that it’s not worth spending it on them.
