Over the past couple of days, we’ve seen the news all over social media about a popular relationship adviser on YouTube called Derrick Jaxn who came out publicly to say he had cheated on his wife on numerous occasions and that he apologizes for it.
Now, a lot of people have been calling him a Narcissist because of the video he put out after he confirmed that he cheating. If you haven’t looked up the word yet, a narcissist is a person just has an over-inflated ego and heightened self-worth. They are self-absorbed, and highly conceited. Here are some signs that you have a narcissistic partner.
1. Always interrupts you
They always interrupt what you’re saying because you’ve reminded them of something that has to do with them. They interrupt you to shift the focus back to them.
2. They lack empathy
They cannot recognise the experiences and feelings of other people. Everything is about them and belongs to them. They get very impatient and annoyed when people share their problems. They say cruel things in an offhanded manner, remaining oblivious to the pain they cause with their words.
3. They hog the conversation
You don’t get to say anything. They’ll talk about their accomplishments the whole time you’re together and won’t allow you to say anything. They do this because they feel better and smarter than everyone else, and also because it helps them create an appearance of being self-assured.
4. Breaks boundaries
Because they don’t care about your feelings, they do what they want without worried about whether or not it will hurt you. They borrow items or money without returning it. They break promises and obligations repeatedly. They show little remorse and blame the victim.
5. They pick on you constantly
It might seem as if they’re just teasing you at first but as time goes on, it becomes a constant. Their goal is to make you feel small and useless while you see them as perfect. They want you to lower your self esteem while theirs is increased.
6. They think they’re always right
No matter the situation, they think they are always right. A disagreement isn’t one for them. They see it as “they’re teaching you something” instead of just a debate or discussion. They never think they’re wrong so they NEVER apologize.
When trying to end a relationship with a narcissist, don’t make it a discussion or else you’ll lose control of the situation. Tell them it’s over and move on from them. Don’t engage. What drives a narcissist crazy is the lack of control and the lack of a fight so disengage.
