You on the other hand, are left heartbroken, beaten down and mentally exhausted..
We have to remind ourselves that Narcissists are incapable of change, and they are incapable of loving anyone on healthy terms.
He may use drastic measures such as threatening suicide, ‘saying he cannot live without you’.
Much like in the beginning when meeting a Narcissist, he puts on a great act, and he uses his best performance to lure you in and win you over!
As time passes, you immediately notice a drastic change in his behavior, the way he treats you and the cycles of idealization and devaluation begin to root!
Without having the support you need, you may find it very difficult to stay away.
After all, a Narcissist is relentless when it comes to securing his sources, and he will often use all kinds of manipulative behavior to suck you back in to the relationship.
The roller-coaster ride is ongoing, and will always repeat itself.
