The Toxic Attraction Between An Empath And A Narcissist

Empaths and narcissists: an emotionally-draining combination.  The possibility for these two types of people to truly bond is nearly impossible, to say the least.  And yet, sometimes people with these totally different personality types bond to create a toxic relationship.  Here, we explain the toxic attraction between an empath and a narcissist. Are you an empath or a narcissist? Do you relate to this post? Sound off below. The one trait that all narcissists share is being wounded. As a result, they seek constant validation.

The Toxic Attraction Between An Empath And A Narcissist

Empaths will always put themselves into other people’s shoes and experience their feelings and emotions, while forgetting that other people may have a very different agenda to their own. This sort of relationship is toxic, as the empath is constantly giving while the narcissist is always taking—at the total expense of the empath. This puts the empath into a victim status, retreating further and further into themselves as the narcissist takes over. The narcissist’s agenda is one of manipulation—they need to be in a position where they are in control.Read More

To the Dads Facing a New Down Syndrome Diagnosis, From Another Dad

It’s a familiar story. We’ve all seen the tropes play out in movies and on tv shows: The jock dad who has a book worm son. The corporate-minded parent with the free-spirited child. The parent who expects their child will go to college, but whose child is not interested in academics. It’s familiar because it’s reality. We aren’t in control of what our kids will be like. I certainly did not plan for my son to have Down syndrome. I did not expect for him to be developmentally delayed. IRead More

To the Dads Facing a New Down Syndrome Diagnosis, From Another Dad

My son is 2 years old. He has Down syndrome, so we have been teaching him sign language to help with his communication. He has learned quite a few signs, which he can competently use. Verbally, he only says a couple of words right now. One of them is my name. And he says it a lot. “Dad-dee! Dad-dee!” That’s what I heard when I walked through the front door after work yesterday. I often hear it when I am on the phone with my wife and he realizes I’m the personRead More

5 Things You Need To Know About Loving An Empath

3. EMPATHS FEEL MORE THAN WHAT THEY CAN VERBALIZE. These sensitive creatures are born with an ability to feel things before they can even logically make sense of the feelings. Loving an empath can be rewarding because they live on touch, sound, and other senses. Unfortunately, what they know doesn’t always have a logical explanation. They can be incredible accurate in their information but not be able to tell you how they picked up on it. If you are in a relationship with this type of personality be sure toRead More

Mom and Baby With Down Syndrome Mail Letter to Doctor Who Suggested Abortion

“Every action, from opening and closing the mailbox to raising the red flag, was closure for me,” Baker said. “I have no idea how the doctor might have reacted to my letter, but I do have faith that God can work any miracle and he can change any heart.” The letter read: Dear Doctor, A friend recently told me of when her prenatal specialist would see her child during her sonograms, he would comment, “He’s perfect.” Once her son was born with Down syndrome, she visited that same doctor.

Children with Down’s syndrome are ‘not being put on organ transplant lists’ by doctors who ‘rule them out because they have lower life expectancy’

Children with Down’s syndrome are treated unfairly by the Government and not put on organ transplant lists, it has been claimed.

Children with Down’s syndrome are treated unfairly by the Government and not put on organ transplant lists (file photo) When the petition hit 10,000Read More

5 Major Signs That Your Partner Could Be a (Clinical) Narcissist

WE’ve all had those moments where we thought our partner was insanely, pathologically selfish. (At least, those of us in LTRs have…) And, though it’s tempting to label your S.O. a narcissist when you’re annoyed, there’s a major difference between cockiness, arrogance, overconfidence, and true narcissism. While on the surface, they do share some qualities, the difference between a selfish jerk and a clinical narcissist is that the latter has no real empathy for others, making their relationship with you all about them and their self-image. They don’t care about you on aRead More
