Empaths have such pure hearts, which often means they are hopeless romantics and therefore explains why they often find themselves in relationships with narcissists, who do nothing other than break their spirit. They are so compassionate that not even the most blatant of red flags are enough to stop them from falling in love for people who are utterly toxic for them. The bottom line is that empaths love with every fiber in their bodies and believe that people can change for the better. Whilst their positivity goes a way in restoring our faith in humanity, it is also ironically their biggest weakness and exposes them to a whole world of pain. Most of them will eventually however realize that they are victims are leave their abusive partner, although that’s not to say that they are prepared for what to expect next...

5 Things a narcissist will do to an empath when they decide to leave them

Are you really sure it’s the end?

1) Guilt trip them

People with this personality disorder know exactly how to pull on our heartstrings and drum up sympathy. They won’t hold back the tears and will spend hours pouring their hearts out about how they simply can’t live without their ex. That’s correct, narcissists certainly have a talent for analyzing personalities and know exactly how to get a sensitive empath on side.

2) Threaten them

When these folks get angry and anticipate the control they have over someone slipping away, they’ll do anything to retain it, even if it means stooping very low and making their victims feel unsafe.

3) They'll spread rumors

Once their victim has decided that things are well and truly over, a narcissist will make it their mission to make them look bad. In certain cases, they will even go as far as trying to paint themselves as the victim in the situation. They'll do anything to sabotage their exes...

4) Call them hundreds of times a day

An empath can expect their phone to be bombarded with messages and voicemails, begging them to change their minds, and asking for one last chance. Narcissists won’t give up their playthings easily and will go to any lengths to avoid changing the power balance.

5) They’ll find another partner and will post it all over social media

I say partner, but I really mean victim… When a narcissist feels that their relationship is definitively over, they’ll soon find someone else to replace their ex. Although they never really have true feelings for anyone they date, they need to feel powerful, and able to call the shots. Ultimately, their desire for power makes remaining single less appealing for them.

Editor’s opinion - Stay strong!

Whatever devious tactics your ex uses against you, you need to stand strong, and look towards the future. As an empath, you may feel bad for your ex partner, but don’t let this impact your mindset. You need to follow your instincts, and above all preserve your mental health, which means getting as far away as possible from your harmful ex.
