Dealing With A Narcissistic Partner



In psychology, narcissism is a personality disorder where someone has an idea of their own importance that is not reasonable, a strong need to be admired by other people, and a lack of understanding of other people's feelings.


Here is one of the dealings experienced by a person who had a narcissistic partner.


"My personal mistake resonates deeply with me as I reflect on a time when I was married for a few months. It was during those early days that I first experienced the shock of being hit by my partner. In that moment, a wave of confusion washed over me, leading me to question my own actions and believe that I must've done something wrong to deserve such treatment. The belief that I needed to be tolerant and constantly improve myself in order to maintain the relationship only intensified as his controlling ways began to surface. The societal expectation that wives should be submissive further clouded my judgment, causing me to believe that enduring such behavior was a part of being a good partner.


However, as time passed and the cycle of abuse continued, I slowly began to realize the detrimental impact it was having on my well-being, both physically and emotionally. I understand now that love yourself is not just a phrase, but a crucial mantra that we must all abide by in order to protect ourselves from toxic relationships. It was a painful lesson to learn, but one that has shaped my understanding of the importance of setting boundaries and standing up for oneself.


I share this story not to dwell on the past, but to shed light on the dangers of allowing narcissism and boundaries to blur in a relationship. It is a testament to the strength and resilience of those who have experienced similar situations and a reminder that it is never too late to make peace with oneself and take control of one's own happiness. My hope is that by sharing my experience, I can help prevent other women from falling into the same trap of enduring abuse in silence, ultimately protecting their health and securing a brighter future for themselves and their children."
