5 Things A Narcissist Says To Make You Feel Crazy

There are certain things which a Narcissist says to make you feel crazy.

Narcissists will implement every single measure to prove you crazy.

Narcissists are not special looking people. They are like every one of us and that makes it so difficult to initially spot a narcissist and run in the opposite direction, to save oneself. Because you don’t want to destroy yourself. Do you?

Absolutely NO.

Ironically, a narcissist is charming AF, in the beginning, of course!

Once you gradually start to get intimately involved with them, you will desperately find yourself searching for an exit, but unfortunately, there’s no exit to being in a relationship with a narcissist, except for one(will be discussed later in this article). These people are highly intelligent, optimistic, and lack conscience.

They’re able to use their charm and manipulative techniques to get what they want from others—whether it be families, friendships, relationships, cults, the workplace, or even politics. They have the capacity to mold themselves in the personalities they want to be, to acquire whatever they want from almost anyone they wish to. This is their unique power and they use it to their fullest advantage.

But that’s the thing about narcissists. They can try to fool you, with all their heart, but in the end, they’re just fooling themselves. ― Ellie Fox

Once they have acquired and used you, for everything they desire from you, you are ready to be taken to the dumping ground. But, wait. Before that, you need to patiently watch their drama and applaud for the efforts they have put to play with your emotions.

Here, are some of the common phrases that narcissists use, in their last try to completely  break you:

1. “Stop overthinking everything.”

Definitely there are people who really DO overthink situations, words, and actions of others. But when a narcissist says this to you, if you retrospect you will realize that you were actually not over-analyzing. Instead, you were factually correct.

They will intentionally engage in activities that piss you off, hurts you and then they will prove you that you are an on-edge paranoid, suspicious person. Take, for example, they will openly display their affection for their ex and when you complain, instead of feeling guilty for their behavior, they will make sure you feel guilty, apologizing on your knees, for your ‘cheap’ behavior of doubting their love for you.

Suprise Suprise! You will finally find them cheating on you with the same person you doubted on.

Narcissists are masters of manipulation. All of it is to merely protect their wounded ego. They will make you question your intuitive abilities just to prove you wrong. If you protest, they will make sure you feel guilty and lose your self-confidence.

2. “Give up on your melodrama.”

They don’t like drama, yet you find them the center of drama, everywhere they go.  Narcissists have a way of flourishing you with lots of affection, attention, care, and consideration in the courting phase. By doing so they are simply building a platform to get into your good-books.

Narcissists are never consistent with this idealization phase. They will soon begin to find faults in you, start criticizing and blaming you for everything you do. The care and attention you once bestowed upon them will gradually start to irritate them. Everything is fine until you start to mention your concerns regarding them.

If you do that, they will display their frustration, and let you know how much they detest drama. You will be blamed for becoming the drama-monger that you are definitely not. All they want then is mental peace.

3. “You are too sensitive to deal with”

Narcissists manufacture emotions in others- that’s exactly what they do.

A narcissist will shower you with the flattery, appreciation, love, and attention that you forever wished for and will suddenly disappear for days together, to keep disconnected from you.

When you finally make contacts, if you display your rage and disappointment, they will make sure to use those manufactured negative emotions on you. They will blame you for being too clingy and needy. If you’re not lucky enough, they will even tease, joke, laugh and mock at your behavior. “You are such a cry-baby.” “It is impossible to handle such a sensitive person like you.”

Within weeks, psychopaths can turn an exceptionally easy-going person into an unrecognizable mess of insecurities and self-doubt.

  1. Thank you, Jackson. Concise and covers it allpretty much all. That is personal topic to me, too. Took me 3 to 4 years to recover after such relationship. I would also add compulsive lying to the list and not knowing when to stop hurting, a great indicator. A healthy person has boundaries in terms of putting someone at risk, or their wellbeing and they would stop seeing it’s to much for someone. They don’t stop at all. Ruthlessness I would call it. In my case, my ex couldn’t also relate to animals in playful interaction much or have higher feelings about them. I read that as children it is common for them to torture animals. In an adult I also noticed that tho not torturing animals, he liked torturing mentally and pressing senstitive spots, it was bringing satisfaction to him, like probing a wound.
    For anyone needing to have an insight into such mind, I recommend reading a book ‘Confessions of a psychopath. A life spent hidden in plain sight”. It was written by M.E. Thomas, a successful psychopath academic lecturer from USA. She also has a blog to ‘help’ I suppose those who ponder over self-diagnosis and to maybe advise how to at least slightly see the human interaction with eyes of an empath, learn in by heart so to speak and interact with others by applying knowledge rather than feelings, because they are not capable of that. It also helps to understand it is a disease. A nasty one you want to stay away but still disease. Being a classic empath, I felt bad suspecting my ex of being a sociopath but reading the book only confirmed my suspicions that even his family was dismissive about. They chose to say ‘He is just not a good person’ rather than diagnose properly and help for less damage to be spread in people’s lives. He himself was saying numerous times to me that he used to be dangerous or that he wasn’t a good person and I never fully understood until afterwards.
