The Toxic & Exhausting Relationship Between An Empath & A Narcissist

by Conscious Reminder

What are empaths? Why empaths always see themselves in positions such as caregivers or even pushovers?  When they are healers, they are usually attracted to people that are negative and broken.

They absorb the struggles of other people, they fix them, and they are generally not aware of the boundaries of a person. They can be strongly drawn to narcissistic individuals because they feel that it is necessary to fix narcissists.

What are narcissists? They are individuals that take of relationship scales, and they are able to suck the energies out of everyone that surrounds them, such as members of their families and acquaintances, and they spot empaths at a great distance.

Knowing that empaths are people that are prepared to give their best, narcissists play all that to their personal advantage, in order to feed the energy reserves.

Usually, empaths are going to see this world as the suffering of other people, trying to understand every incident. Empaths can be weak or strong because they believe that every person in the world is sincere just like they are.

On the other hand, narcissists are not going to feel something when they manipulate the empaths, rising above the others, in order to gain some control.

However, empaths always look for care, love, and understanding. Unfortunately, such combination is always going to end up with heartache, as offering more attention and love will make narcissists more in control and powerful.

“We know that “narcissist” has become a bit of a buzzword recently, and some folks are quick to apply it to an ex-lover or family member or friend. While awareness of this concept is healthy, so is remembering that it is, in a mental health context, a serious condition that shouldn’t be applied to someone you’re mad at because they stole your mirror.” 

When narcissists gain powers, empaths start retreating. Without any doubt, this shoves empaths into the position of a victim. One of the ways out would be becoming a narcissist.

More often than not, empaths blame themselves, and this just fuels the narcissists further on. Being manipulative and charismatic, and also having the powerful way to turn away everything from them, narcissists are actually ingenious when they mirror such things onto other people.

However, right now, as empaths know that they are in trouble, they have to understand that they always have a specific choice. They are able to choose to get out or stay.

“In an empath’s eyes, all they searched and looked for was someone to take care of and love and to ultimately fix. That is where the trouble began, and that is the most profound part of this that an empath must realize. We are not here to fix anyone. We cannot fix anyone. Everyone is responsible for and capable of fixing themselves, but only if they so choose to.”

In fact, the chances that narcissists will change are very low. Narcissists spend time in their zone of comfort, and they feed themselves of negativity. However, when they decide to find another different path that is never supposed to be at someone else’s expense.

Often, being entirely unaware of the behavior they maintain, they can fail to notice problems, and they will be living in denial. Narcissists thrive on gains after all.

Empaths are unique, and they are desperate to always live their lives true to the purpose of their soul.

The capacity for the two different types to connect is almost impossible. The heart of the narcissist is closed, while one of the empath is open – in fact, this is the recipe for some great disaster, and it is not the one for something beautiful.
