7 Painful Truths All Empaths Must Eventually Face About Narcissists2

 

7 – Love doesn’t always conquer all

Most Empaths hold these common beliefs about love and relationships:

Where there’s a will, there’s a way.  Love conquers all.  Everyone has some good in them and deserves the benefit of the doubt.  If you want to be forgiven, you must forgive.  The Ex didn’t have any family or friends, and now I’ve “abandoned” them, too.  I wasn’t perfect, either. 

These nuggets of insight might apply to other areas of life, but not to toxic relationships.  Why? Because it gives Empaths another way to torture themselves.

It doesn’t matter if you were with your Ex for two, ten, or thirty years, it’s time to accept that you did everything within your power to salvage the relationship. The misguided fear that you could have done something differently is based on your toxic Ex having changed the goal posts continuously– and yes, it was deliberate.  This explains why every single Empath believes there is something else they could have done to save the relationship.  It’s a result of conditioning — and overwriting this belief will be part of your healing journey.

Living a healed, balanced, and happy life means accepting these painful truths, even though the Narcissist cannot.  They can’t be healed because for that to happen, they’d first need to acknowledge they are wounded.  Instead, Narcissists use fear, obligation, and guilt (FOG) to keep their targets perpetually catering to their every whim…and overlooking lies and broken promises.

  1. I read articles like this and every word is like a moment from my past life. I do take comfort in knowing that all that pain, suffering, mental and emotional abuse was not just in my head as was implied by my ex. He is long gone but the scars of his abuse will remain forever. You dont get through all that without being changed to some degree. The hardest part is allowing yourself to continue to be real with everyone else that comes into your life and accepting that your moral compass was not the one that was or is broken. But taking a chance on love again is as scary as all hell.

  2. Great article. Loved the last one about narcissists too. I tried to rate you 5 stars but for some reason is only let me rate 2. 🙁 I’m sorry. I made the rating worse. Tried 2 more times to rate 5 starts without luck. Either way. Your articles are helping me a lot. Broke up with one a couple of months ago. thank you. well done.
