Here is a really sad truth about narcissism and depression! These two go hand in hand. Narcissistic people are phenomenally depressed and unhappy people!
This is a significant reason why these people work so hard to make other people’s lives as miserable as possible.
Misery loves company!
These are just a few sad truths that narcissist feel:
- Inferior to many people
- Scared that they are never good enough for anyone
- Hate who they are, hence the need to wear a mask of a false version of themselves
- And much more
Dealing with depression and anxiety is something that many people feel, but narcissist, like the kidults they are — never try and manage these feelings!
What many of them do is try and toss it on someone else, and I do believe that it is NOT OUR PROBLEM THEY SUFFER FROM DEPRESSION!
Note: I was published in a book! Check out “Empathic Warriors Survival Stories : Not Your Ordinary Empath“
Narcissism and Depression: They Suffer But it Is Not Our Problem
It is NOT your/our fault; they had a bad childhood.
That is sad. It is a sad life that some people have to live.
However, many empaths have narc parents and don’t grow up to be nasty people who go out there and hurt others for their pleasure.
Depression is a disease, but what good does YOU SUFFERING make any sense for a disease you didn’t give to someone?
You, more than anyone else on this planet, are deserving of happiness. And as sad and cruel as it may sound — if cutting the narc out of your life, even if they are suffering from depression, well bring you joy, you may want to do that!
Your one life is for you, NOT THEM!
You best believe that if they could leave you broken and hurt, they would do it in a HEARTBEAT!
You owe them NOTHING…give them nothing and live and be happy without them in your life!
Struggling With C-PTSD?
I often say that living with a narcissist is like living in a war zone! This comparison may very well seem hyperbolic, but research has shown that living around narcissists can have the same effects on a person’s mind as people living in a war zone!
I wrote an article describing the “10+ Mental Illnesses Caused By Staying With Narcissists“.
These people are monsters, plain and simple.
If you are struggling with emotional flashbacks, dealing with mental and emotional battles that NO ONE but yourself seems to see and feel, and if you find it hard to get out of bed every day, you may be dealing with C-PTSD.
As great as support groups may be, or as profound as articles can be, they are no substitute for professional help.
Sometimes the best way to heal and move forward is with therapy.
Speaking with someone and getting the hurt off your chest is a great way to unload.
