3 Ways You Can Tell A Narcissist Is Trying To Manipulate You And How To Respond

SHARE

When you think about all the types of wicked people who do us more damage than benefit by being in our life, (the ones who contaminate our world with their toxic venom), narcissists are the top of the worst, most toxic people of all.

You could say that the range of narcissism is a full-colored spectrum. And people who possess narcissistic traits, belong to one or the other side of the spectrum,  without being clinically diagnosed with an actual medical disorder.

You can classify them as arrogant, self-centered, manipulative and extremely devoid of empathy and compassion.

Narcissists have mastered the art of getting into people’s minds and controlling their world to the point of destroying them to the very core and leaving a trail of wreckage behind them. They are merciless in their quest for power, so they’ll stop at nothing when it comes to their own benefits.

If you ever had the unfortunate chance to be a part of their life, they probably managed to successfully manipulate you without you being aware of it at first.

However, to prevent this from happening ever again, you need to learn their strategy and the ways they operate. Here are 3 sure ways you can tell a narcissist is trying to manipulate you:

1. Narcissists have a special sense that helps them see other people’s vulnerabilities

Think of it as their 6th sense. Manipulative people are the masters at detecting people’s vulnerability by firstly getting deep under their skin. You won’t be able to feel them, up until the moment they stick a knife in your heart. And they rip your soul open.

One of their easiest catch is emotionally insecure people who are waiting for someone to rescue them from this cruel world. And this where the narcissist is set to attack.

They arrive disguised in the thing you’ve desired the most, that divine, pure-hearted person who you’ve been waiting for your entire life.

They will later merciless use their manipulation tricks on you, and in a blink of an eye, you’ll be trapped in their world without a way out.

It’s most likely you’ve been in a relationship with a narcissistic person, so the most painless way to get out is to cut them off completely by focusing on yourself and your recovery only.

Have the courage to make the step and get the hell out of that toxic relationship. Don’t lose hope. The best is yet to come.

2. No matter how hard you try, you will never be able to please a narcissistic person

Narcissists hold the power of making you feel like you’re never good enough for them, no matter how hard you try. You do anything they demand, and you keep asking for their approval, but there is only disappointment. Every time.

This is the perfect way for them to control you, because as time passes you grow codependent to them.  You begin to feel like you are a classic failure and you don’t even deserve them.

This method is by far the best way for them to exploit your being because whatever they ask from you, you’ll be more than willing to give it to them even if it involves you sacrificing yourself.

Break the never-ending cycle by standing up for yourself. You will not allow them to treat you like a slave. You won’t let them make you feel worthless. You deserve all the beauty in this world.

Now, march out there and take your power back!

3. And once they successfully isolate you from your family and close friends, they will punish you by using the silent treatment

After a certain period in which the narcissist will manage to seduce you with their kind words and fake, angelic personality, they’ll turn into a disastrous creature you’ve never thought existed.

They will start to blame you and the people in your life for every relationship difficulty between you two. The next step will be estranging you from your family and isolating you from your friends, just so they can easily abuse you.

Once you’re left all alone by yourself, they will criticize you and stop talking to you. The silent treatment will be extremely sadistic and damaging for your being, and since you’ll be all alone, they will have the biggest opportunity to defeat you.

This is the moment where you need to detach from them. They won’t let you escape that easy, but you shouldn’t surrender. Get out of there no matter how painful it is. Time will help you heal your wounds, and you’ll be fine. Just be strong, and never give up.

Somewhere out there, behind the horizon, the sun is about to shine for you, again.
