This is an issue that needs professional help, and fixing it is the narcissist’s hill to climb.Your job is to heal, move on, and, when you’re ready, find the healthy relationship you're worthy of.
If you start to eclipse it, you’ll soon be subject to putdowns and doubt; anything to stop you becoming better than them.
Dating a narcissist wises you up to this empty flattery, meaning you’ll only believe kind words that are followed through with kind actions and kept promises.
Another intoxicating part of a relationship with a narcissist is how quickly they profess love-at-first-sight adoration.
Here’s what you learn, though: if you can never reach their impossibly high standards, why try? And, if that feels good, then why not reject the one who only wants an ego-prop and find a partner who likes version of you?
If you date a narcissist, you find that they try and shape people to make themselves look better.
