38 Signs You’re Being Abused By A Narcissist (Watch Out For Number 5!)
If you’ve ever had the misfortune of being wrapped up with a narcissist, then you already know what one of these horrible human beings are capable of.
Since there is no concern for anyone else but themselves, they can prove to be some of the most toxic people that you could ever associate yourself with, especially when it comes to being in love with one of them.
Narcissists see others as pawns, essentially. You are able to carry out there demands, not really thinking twice about them and always letting them have their way.
When you are so deeply lost that you can’t even recognize yourself, how do you recognize the signs of being abused by a narcissist?
It’s completely normal to have a handful of bumps in any relationship, but if you can relate to more than a couple these, it might be time to rethink things.
Below are 38 signs that should point you in the right direction.
1. You find yourself apologizing, a lot.
Narcissists will never give you an apology especially if it’s something that they did.
They already know what they’ve done and they are going to refuse to acknowledge all of the consequences that follow after their cruel deeds.
If the person you are dealing with seems as if they are never going to apology it could be because you are dealing with a toxic narcissistic person.
In their world, they are never the one who is in the wrong, only all of the other people who should’ve done things ‘differently’ so that this never even happened.
2. You try to carefully control your words, actions, tone of voice and any details you share with your partner out of fear of upsetting them.
Narcissists are prone to being arrogant especially when you are trying to confront them on the things that are hurting those around them.
They will consider this a personal attack from you and decide that you are doubting them at every turn, that you’ve never supported them or their ideas, and that you are the worst person on the planet.
Again, you may think that this is an over exaggeration but this is truly how a narcissist feels whenever someone defies their wishes. These people will always prove to be toxic in the end.
3. All of a sudden you have developed a problem with trust, jealousy and anger. You overreact at the smallest things and your partner points this out to you often.
Narcissists do not hesitate with their jealousy and will proudly display it whenever they see something they don’t have.
They are the most envious whenever they see someone who is essentially better than they are and will act out in every single possible way to deprive that person of praise or attention.
All of this seems like a bit much for one individual to carry out but it’s true.
A narcissist absolutely hates it whenever they find someone or something that is just far beyond their league and they know it’s going to drive them crazy thinking about how much that specific thing is going to gain that much more attention than them.
4. You find yourself telling lies to avoid angering your partner.
You may notice this warning sign in your partner if they are abusing drugs, alcohol, or any other kind of substance.
It will become extremely obvious when they have been caught lying, their entire demeanor changes, and will try to make you feel as uncomfortable as possible.
According to research that was conducted on pathological gamblers & antisocial personality disorder, results had shown over 73% of people reacted that reacted being accused of lying would try to hide their gambling like mannerisms.
5. You feel afraid of your partner and fear what he/she might do next.
Another thing that you will notice about a narcissist is that they are always needing constant approval from everyone.
If there is even one person who defies them this praise they will act out in a temper tantrum to the likes that no one has ever seen before.
You may think that this is an over exaggeration but I promise you it’s not.
Narcissists thrive off of attention which is one of the reasons why they keep you and everyone around for so long is because they need that validation.
You may think that they could get anyone to do that, yes they could, but if you aren’t doing it then you will witness what it’s like to get on their bad side.
6. You feel hopeless.
Narcissists will never show any kind of form of compassion or empathy other than for themselves.
Unless you are giving them something that will benefit them, they will never express any kind of empathy to you at all. They expect people to give them things in exchange for their presence.
Every narcissist believes that they are worth a lot more than everyone else claims to be.
If you’ve noticed these aspects to someone, then you could possibly be dealing with a toxic narcissist.
7. You’ve started writing down details about your fights with your partner so you can remember what actually happened and not what your partner says happened at a later date.
Narcissists will take any kind of opportunity to avoid taking responsibility for something they did.
Most of the time, they will flat out deny any kind of confrontation when it comes to dealing with responsibility.
They feel as if they are completely able to get away with things without consequences following them soon afterwards.
They believe that it’s your fault for being hurt for the things they did to you and essentially it’s also your fault for having feelings in general.
Anything that is aimed towards making them look bad they will deny and retort with vile insults.
