What Is A Narcissist?
There are no winners or losers in a divorce. The sense of loss affects our emotional, financial, and sometimes physical health. All of this takes its toll on us making healing afterward difficult. But when you have to go through this with a narcissist, it can be even more devastating and yet freeing, because of the narcissist’s nature.
Narcissism is a personality disorder that is characterized by an excessive need for admiration and a lack of empathy for others. Individuals with a narcissistic personality disorder often have an inflated sense of self-esteem and believe that they are superior to others. They can be manipulative and demanding, and often use others to meet their own needs.
Unfortunately, divorcing a narcissist can be incredibly difficult, but if you know what to look for, you can protect yourself during and after the divorce. Knowledge is power.
