When you find out who they are, how will they react?
If you’re reading this, there’s a fair chance you already know the truth about someone dear to you. You’ve been trying to find out who this guy is, when all of a sudden, you know they’re a narcissist who’s mentally unstable and toxic, and they’re not right for you.
What happens if you have this realization and it is shared with the person with whom you are in a relationship?

There will be some criticism now that you’ve switched gears.

The narcissist would not have to think about people leaving them if they have complete control of anything. They are not helpless as they can manage a situation and they are in control. The narcissist can become enraged and use various methods to punish you, but their true motivation is to prove you wrong, especially to those around you.
