Are you a giving person? Do you find that you are a magnet for takers?

If you attract partners and pals who love to talk about themselves, are easily offended, exaggerate their accomplishments, believe they are above the rules and expect “special” treatment then today’s Real Love Revolution vid about the damage and danger of dating a narcissist is for YOU! 

Does the above description resonate with you? Does it perhaps remind you of your partner or one of your parents? Or can you see yourself in there? When it comes to being in a relationship with a narcissist, it’s difficult to find any real intimacy because everything is about your functionality in their life. Narcissists can love only on a superficial level. As long as you are doing what they think you are supposed to be doing, all is well. (And when I say “well,” I mean they get what they want and you stay unsatisfied, unseen and unheard.) The moment you deny them exactly what they want, look out! They will explode, get mean and do just about anything to get you back in line with their plan. If you don’t comply, they will leave.

Actions and conversations with a narcissist all revolve around building them up, even when it’s “about you,” it’s really about them – they get to “show you off to their friends.” That isn’t about you at all. It’s about their ego and how you make them look. How can you possibly be your true self in a relationship with someone who only sees you through how you benefit them? A real relationship requires both parties being witnessed and seen, allowing you both to be authentic in the relationship, and therefore, deepening the intimacy and love.

  1. Thank you for your video on this Terri! My experience is basically a repeating relationship reality as you call it: my stepdad is a narc, I’ve been in romantic relationships with them, and had many friendships with them. I started weeding them all out a few years ago. I stopped talking to my stepdad a few years ago and I have to say, I don’t ever regret my choice. It has allowed me to heal on a deeper level and to cut out a toxic person who wasn’t adding anything to my life (only subtracting).

  2. Any hints on how to divorce a narcissist that you’ve been married to a really long time (knew he wasn’t normal, but now I know what the problem is). They think they own you and he thinks everything is his. He would be so difficult to escape from and would want REVENGE. Scary to think about. Thanks for the awesome video. I learned so much.

  3. Thanks Terri,
    I wish to God to have had this information/education four years ago…thanks for sharing this LIFE SAVING information.
    Narcissists are also pathological liars.

  5. Great post! I, unfortunately lived with a narcissist.in fact, I’ve been recovering from the relationship for a year-the book Psycopath Free was useful. Could you dedicate a post or an episode to recovering from an abusive relationship please. Thanks a lot!

    1. Mariana- I am happy to hear you’ve moved on from that relationship but understand the devastating impact. Thanks for the book recommendation. Yes, I will add you rtopic to the list for posts. Keep up the good work! xo
