It indeed feels suffocating to be in relationship with a Narcissist whose only concern is ‘Me’ and there is hardly any ‘You’ in that particular relationship. Quite obviously, this sort of a relationship has an inevitable end and that is –break-up. However, there are several implications of these relationships that keep haunting the second person in many ways even after break-up. Here are some of the most common emotional upheavals that the ex-partner of a Narcissist goes through after break-up along with some tips and tricks to deal with the same:
1. The main emotion related to a Narcissist is too much obsession with one’s own self. This often leads to judging his or her partner all the time, which is indeed frustrating for the partner. Nevertheless, this might keep coming back as a menacing memory post break-up as well and one cannot come out of the phase easily. In such cases, it is wise to remind the mind that there is no existence of the Narcissist anymore and the sooner one realizes that and moves on, the better. Usually as per experts, three months is the average time that a partner requires to be completely forgetful of the Narcissist.
