Narcissists NEVER CHANGE. And the fate of narcissism in old age is a fate that is pathetically sad. Narcissists go their whole lives thinking they are the greatest things to walk this planet.
And only realize their mortality in their final waking hours.
When the curtain of life falls on their Broadway disaster of life there will be no standing ovations. There will be no tear swiping of the eyes because a “great story” ending. And there will be no flower bouquets.
Hell, there may not even be anyone there left to see the curtain falls.
Because like a bad movie, they will lose their audience.
The Aging Narcissist Is Just An Aging Fool
Let me state this before we begin, Elders DO NOT AUTOMATICALLY DESERVE RESPECT. Respect is earned…not given.
Yet sadly, many of us are taught to give respect to our elders as if senility is a GIVEN at a certain age.
It is NOT.
Old narcissists know this and they use their age to get what they want. And this is clearly evident in certain cultures (to which I will not be posting, as you can do your own research on that).
The old narcissists are some of the most toxic and malignant narcissists you will come across.
And the reason is that narcissists, unlike wine, do not age very well.
They get worse as they age. And the reason for this is because they realize that they are becoming NOTHING IMPORTANT.
It is a saddening realization to know that your life will not be remembered or honored.
That you are becoming what you sought to make everyone else; which is nothing.
The Aging Narcissists Final Day: No Standing Ovation
Life is a Broadway show, or at least that is how I like to see it.
Our lives should be a story that inspires others around us. We should be heroes in our story. And on our death bed, we should be applauded for the life that we lived.
Our lives should inspire the next generation to become the very best that they can be.
But for the aging narc, their story is a story to which no one will be present on their curtain fall.
The Aging Narcissists Final Day
I want you to imagine this.
A person in an old person’s home. A narcissist…pick your gender.
This person is in a room by themselves. No family because they used their own family, mistreated them, lied to them, broken them at times and PUSHED THEM away with their narcissistic tendencies.
They have no friends because well, narcs don’t see people as individuals but as pawns and tools. So those who caught wind of their true nature left them and went NO CONTACT.
WENT NO CONTACT. (Just in case you didn’t absorb this the first time)
Their flying monkeys cannot be considered friends because as I mentioned in one of my articles “Flying Monkeys Have No Minds Of Their Own” they are just an extension of the narc. They cannot do anything to comfort the narc.
The narc is now by themselves, which they were terrified of their whole lives. They have NO ONE by their side.
They are scared, timid, and now realizing they WASTED THEIR WHOLE LIVES.
Their curtain of life falls and there isn’t even a peal of laughter, a snide comment, or a whimper.
Because they became unimportant.
Our Lives Should Welcome A Standing Ovation
For many out there who have been hurt by a narc — all they wish and want is to get revenge. They scheme about it, dream about it and may even conspiring about it with someone.
But know this…narcs do not get better with age.
Know that this is how most Narc’s lives end. They end with NO ONE being there by their side.
This is why so many of us who have gone No Contact and have left the narc Champion the idea of NO CONTACT.
It is the best revenge because we give the narc something they fear; which is being alone.
We should see our lives as if we are on a stage for the whole world to see. And we should tell a story of how we overcame the narc to become something, and someone… better.
Because when our curtain of life falls on us…we should be remembered for the person we are. We should be applauded for the story we lived. And we should have a bouquet of flowers thrown on our stage of life for inspiring the next generation.
Narcissists will never understand this until it is too late. But for us, regular people, we should take this to heart.
Let your story of hurt be a source of strength for you and an inspiration for the coming generation.
