The Toxic Magnetism Between An Empath & A Narcissist

Narcissists seek constant validation and attention, while empaths feel other people’s emotions as their own, which is why empaths are attracted to narcissists. 

An empath gets into a relationship with a narcissist, hoping that he/she can fix the person with a narcissistic personality. 

They don’t realize that narcissistic people will take all they can from you until there is nothing left inside you. The narcissist plans to manipulate the empath while the empath focuses on loving, healing, and caring about the narcissist. 

As you can see, it is a match made in hell. Day by day the as the empath loves and cares, the more influential the narcissist becomes, and continues until the empath is fragile and helpless. 

There is also a possibility that the empath might transform into a narcissist from the damage caused. They, too, will then seek others in order to fix themselves. Thus the relationship between an empath and narcissist becomes a vicious never-ending cycle.

The saddest part is that the narcissist is blaming their own pain on the empath. Instead of blaming narcissists for this, the empaths blame themselves. It doesn’t take empaths long to realize that they are in a destructive relationship. For an empath, it can be hard to leave a toxic relationship.

Here is when an empath needs to realize his/her self-worth. They need to recognize that they deserve so much more than what a narcissist offers- which is actually nothing but pain. 

We, as empaths, should realize it is not our duty to fix others. People are responsible for themselves. 

Believing that a narcissist is going to change is complete lunacy. Once narcissists learn that they are powerless in the face of an empath, they leave.

If you’re already in a relationship with a narcissist, it is not too late to put an end to it. One should realize that two people of very different personalities like this can’t be in a relationship.

Narcissists are closed-hearted, while empaths are open-hearted. An empath and narcissist cannot be together, just like heaven and hell cannot exist together.

The bottom line why they’re attracted to each other:

Empaths and narcissists are frequently drawn to each other because, as the saying goes, opposites attract. 

Empaths have a lot of understanding and compassion, and narcissists thrive on attention.

Empaths are very forgiving. Therefore they will forgive everything the narcissist does.

Narcissists are drawn to people they can use or get the most use from; this means they often pursue and target empaths.

Wouldn’t it be fabulous if we knew everybody’s true intentions before we allowed them to get close?
