Why Do Empath Crave Narcissists?

by Silena Le Beau 4 months ago in heartbreak
Report Story

The toxic rollercoaster relationship between an Empath and a Narcissist!

We started out as friends

Then one day we took that relationship further

It was great at first I swear

But when it was bad it got ugly

I used to laugh and smile in public

And cry behind closed doors, thinking why me

But I couldn't hide the truth from my loved ones

They knew I was putting on a front and saving face

It was eating me up inside

How can I be with someone who makes me feel

All these things that love isn't supposed to be

I try to walk away then feel guilty for wanting to leave

But I need to free myself for my own sanity

One day, I finally get the courage and I hear

"You never did anything for me and you will be nothing"

Despite all my efforts and the empathy and compassion I had

To entertain his broken, traumatized soul

Thats when I learned I made the right choice by leaving

A narcissist.
