Narcissists are well-known for not admitting their mistakes. They never take responsibility for their wrongdoings. They always run from facing the consequences of their vile actions, and they never apologize.
And this leads us to conclude that when it comes to dealing with toxic people, narcissists are the worst. The last thing you would want is to see them angry. And be sure, you don’t want any of that.
You won’t see traits such as loyalty, honesty, integrity, courage, openness, vulnerability, or true kindness in a narcissist.
You cannot hope for them to be honest or brave enough to say “It was my fault, how can I make this right?”, and even if they do, they will usually want something in return…
Narcissists do not understand the true meaning of empathy.
They are not able to think and care about anyone else but themselves. They have developed a mindset that makes them think love does nothing but make people weak and irrational and forces them to make bad decisions.
They’ve grown up thinking that you don’t necessarily need to treat others with kindness to get what you want. And that as long as you are smart and know how to play the game you can have anything you want in life. Put simply, they have been raised without love.
All of their toxic characteristics are the result of decades of neglect and emotional abuse.
These people have been hurt badly and they’ve gotten used to seeing life through a toxic lens. They have grown up thinking that love does not exist and that’s why it’s not worth chasing or fighting for. Their pain has taken full control of their lives and turned them into heartless, back-stabbing creatures. They are people without a conscience who cannot distinguish between right and wrong. People who wouldn’t think twice before hurting another human being for personal gains.
The narcissist will never say ‘sorry’ and mean it.
You’ll never see them plead for forgiveness even if they know they’re the ones to blame. Rather, they will take the easy way out and just shift the blame onto you.
They will provoke you and then use your natural response to blame you for overreacting and causing trouble. They will attack you when you least expect it and exploit your insecurities. They will push you around until you don’t know who you are anymore.
And once you start feeling overwhelmed, you will admit that you are truly responsible for everything they put on you, and that will cement the notion that no matter what they do, they will always come out on top.
So, be wary of those who want to manipulate you. Beware of those cold individuals who make you feel like you’re going insane. Beware of those who consciously try to put you down and plead ignorance once you start noticing. Look-out for those backstabbers. Do not let narcissists enter your life.
