A Narcissist’s Worst Nightmare

Narcissistic people tend to be some of the most self-absorbed human beings on the entire planet. They demonstrate more often than not that they would rather much not be dealing with you or anyone else that tries to get in the way of their self-indulgence.

If you are dealing with a narcissist of your own, it is important that you look for these certain things that they will try to avoid in order to manipulate your relationship with them so that they get exactly what they want from you.

It’s also an important thing to keep in mind that you always have the power to just tell them no, walk away, and move on from this horrible experience of a toxic personality.

Narcissists will avoid giving you any kind of credit when it comes to you helping them out.

Instead, they will point out all of your flaws, all of the things you should’ve done, and how you are expected to do all of this/more for them.

This is a very self-destructive behavior that a person can have simply because they will seem as if they will never be satisfied with what you give them.

If you’ve begun to notice that the person you are dealing with purposely avoids praising you for any kind of effort, you may be experiencing a toxic narcissistic person.
