Narcs get pleasure from causing harm to others — and when we can turn that frown upside down, that messes the narc up in more ways than one.
Staying in narc relationship because of the children is something that many people do. There is a belief in society that kids need tow parents to have a strong and healthy upbringing. And although I do not oppose this idea, I would like to play devil’s advocate here.
Narcissists are nothing more than paper tigers. They are grown children playing it adult. They are the big kid on the playground. They are the three-year-old out of control. They are nothing more than immature children in grown adult bodies.
