The attraction between empaths and narcissist is remarkable. It’s one of the biggest out there. However, even though the passion and the attraction level between them are extremely high, they are not a good match for one another.
Empaths are one of the most selfless people in the world. And when they get in touch with a selfish person like the narcissist is, nothing good can come from it.
Empaths are the healers of the world. They have a power to put themselves into other people’s shoes and feel the emotions they are feeling as their own. They are one of the most sensitive people on earth.
On the other hand, narcissists are immensely selfish and egotistical. The narcissist only thinks about themselves and satisfying their own needs. They don’t care if they hurt anyone in the process of getting what they want. They are cruel, immature, and emotionally unavailable due to their emotional wounds and traumas.
And regardless of how incompatible these two are, they somehow get always connected. The narcissist is drawn to the empath because they see the empath as a source of attention and validation – something that the narcissist craves and needs like air. On the contrary, the empath sees the narcissist as a hurt human being who needs healing and that’s why the empath refuses to give up on the narcissist.
The longer the relationship between them lasts, the greater the hurt. Their relationship can never be a healthy one. The empath will be constantly drained and in pain but powerless to do anything. That’s how the narcissist destroys the empath. This relationship is one of the worst because of the amount of toxicity that is present in it.
The relationship inevitably ends when the empath finally realizes their worth and that they don’t deserve that kind of treatment, or when the narcissist finds someone “better” who would be a better substitute for them. Either way, their relationship is doomed to fail.
If you are an empath dealing with a narcissist who mistreats you and abuses you, the best thing you can do is cut all ties with them and leave them for good.
