The only possibility of having a healthy relationship with a narcissist is if the narcissist is self-aware, and is undergoing long-term intensive therapy.

This is a very rare occurrence since most people with Narcissistic Personality Disorder don’t believe there’s anything wrong with them.

One of the harshest truths someone in a relationship with a narcissist has to face is that their partner will never change. The toxic hope I held onto for so long in my own marriage to a Malignant Narcissist almost got me killed.

I refused to believe that the man I had devoted my life to enjoyed the pain and misery he heaped on me.

I made every excuse in the world for his behavior. He had Anger Management problems. He was abused as a child. He had abandonment issues. I acted like a bitch or was deficient in some way. If I could just do this or that, he would stop abusing me.

By making excuses for him, I was unwittingly giving him permission to continue to torment me. The loyalty I gave him was undeserved, and definitely not reciprocated.

Yet for years, I held onto the hope that something miraculous would happen and he would suddenly become a decent human being.

Once I began educating myself about Narcissistic Personality Disorder, Antisocial Personality Disorder, and Narcissistic Abuse, I was forced to face reality. There was nothing I could ever say or do to make the relationship healthy.

My husband was a Narcissist, and he had absolutely no desire to change.

As painful as it was to accept that I had been fighting a losing battle the entire time, it was the best decision I ever made.

  1. I see you’ve been on Quora since the end of 2018? I just wanted to check and see how long you’ve been around because past Narcissists have made me so (deservingly) paranoid that if you just started up on there only like a month ago, or so, I’d be concerned that you were someone ‘he’ sent to check up on me. But, you appear sincere, and have also been on Quora quite a while.

    Sorry for my suspicions, but the last one played a real number on me, and every now and then, I find myself still reeling from it. They really mess with one’s head. Of course, part of my confusion is just my own brand of Super Power that I was born with.
