A narcissist is difficult to love. These people are not only pompous with an inflated sense of self-importance and entitlement, they are also difficult to love and a nightmare to live with long term.
With relationships involving giving, taking, and compromising, going this journey with a narcissist can be a torture to the mind, body and spirit because there is no reasoning with them, pleasing them, or understanding their love for putting others down in order to constantly validate themselves.
How do you cope when your significant other expects more than you’re prepared or able to give? Or puts a strain on the relationship by making it all about them while completely disregarding your position? Your feelings, emotions and needs pale in comparison to theirs; leaving you unfulfilled, feeling irrelevant, bereft of love saddled with a low self-esteem.
Selfishness in a relationship is hard to ignore or live with no matter how much love you’ve got to give. A narcissistic partner is manipulative and quick to take offense at every turn. They’re a poison that leave you bitter and confused.
