Today, we’re discussing a topic that I am frequently asked about: how to beat a narcissist at their own game. So, let’s dive into this topic.
First, let’s discuss some ways that many victims think they can beat the narcissist, but that do not work. Some victims believe that beating the narcissist involves getting them to understand that they are a narcissist with a severe personality disorder, and that by educating them, they will see the error of their ways and change. Unfortunately, this will never happen. Similarly, explaining to the narcissist how damaging and painful their behavior is for you and others will not work either. In some cases, a victim may think that showing the narcissist how worthy they are will make the narcissist stop their toxic and abusive behavior. However, none of these approaches will ever work.
What you must understand and remember is that narcissists know what they are doing, and they know that their behavior hurts the people in their life whom they claim to love. However, the truth is that they don’t care. If you hear nothing else from me, please hear this: the narcissist does not care that their behavior hurts and harms you. They know what they’re doing is wrong, and they do not care. In fact, for higher-spectrum narcissists, such as malignant narcissists, sharing this information with them will not only not work, but it will give them more ideas for things they can do in the future to hurt, harm, and make you suffer even more than they already are causing.
