11 Warning Signs A Narcissist Is Emotionally Abusing You
5. They manipulate you through their charm.
Narcissists posses great acting skills. To make you like them and because they know no one would accept their selfish behavior, they put on a charming face and pretend to be the kindest, loveliest, and friendliest people you’ve ever met.
But, once you like them, they no longer bother to show interest in and respect for you and your feelings because they know they already have control over you.
6. You frequently battle feeling ignored and invisible.
This is not unusual at all, considering the fact that according to them, the only person that is entitled to everyone’s attention and they care about them is themselves. You’re irrelevant to them. That’s why a narcissist won’t give you their attention and love, thereby making you dependent on them. They’ll ignore your feelings and opinions to the point you start feeling invisible.
7. Your success is never acknowledged by them.
Your personal and professional accomplishments are always a threat to a narcissist. In order not to feel inferior to you, they’ll do whatever it takes to downplay the importance of your accomplishments. They’ll make you feel like what you’ve accomplished is totally irrelevant or just a matter of luck.
8. You suddenly become anxious and depressed.
If you’re a victim of narcissistic abuse, feeling anxious and depressed is unavoidable. And this is totally expected, considering the fact that narcissists have no understanding and respect for your emotions and they constantly put you down and make you feel unworthy.
9. Empathy is a foreign concept to them.
When you’re down in the dumps or going through a really tough period, don’t expect a narcissist to understand your pain or console you. They have a complete lack of compassion and empathy. They don’t see you as a human being with feelings and needs, but as someone who only exists for the sole purpose of pleasing them.
10. Lying comes natural to them.
Narcissists neither have nor know anything about conscience. If you catch them lying, they’ll come up with a new lie. Their chain of lies is never ending. They lie about themselves and exaggerate their achievements. They’re always ready to tell even the most blatant lies in order to make themselves look as the smartest and the most capable people.
11. They don’t take responsibility for anything.
They can make countless mistakes and hurt you many times, but they’ll never admit it. They’ll shift the blame onto you and make themselves look innocent. In this way, they’ll achieve their goal to make you feel weak and easy to be controlled.
