Narcissists are absolutely jealous of others’ success.
That’s why they go to such great lengths to sabotage the lives of anyone they deem to be more successful than themselves.
Whether it’s their spouse, co-worker, friend, or own children, a narcissist despises happiness in others.
They can’t be happy themselves. And they certainly don’t want anyone else to be.
My Malignant Narc ex-husband resented me for my successes and achievements.
And also for any talent or capabilities I had that he didn’t.
He couldn’t stand the fact that I excel at speed-reading. He would literally snatch books from my hands and rip the pages out.
He demanded things from me that were next to impossible to achieve.
And when I somehow managed to beat the odds, he set the bar even higher.
Far from being happy that I accomplished something that had been destined to fail, he hated me for it.
His pathological envy was all-consuming and very toxic.
All narcissists are this way, of course.
If you’re in a relationship with a narcissist, work with one, or have the misfortune to be the child of a narcissist, I highly recommend never telling them of any successes or accomplishments you may achieve.
It will only fuel the jealous fire that burns in them.
And they will stop at nothing to take it from you.
HowLong Will It Be Before A Narcissist Tries To Get You Back In Their Lives?
There’s no formula that can prove definitively when, or if, a narcissist will try to get someone back in their lives.
Despite not having certain human emotions, narcissists are still human beings. With different preferences and objectives.
People are unpredictable, and every situation is different.
Generally speaking, if a narcissist has discarded you, and believes there is no further financial or monetary gain to be had, it’s quite possible that he’ll never return.
It’s also possible that the narc will get bored with his current sources of supply and revisit you for another dance between the sheets.
But he won’t stay.
Instead of trying to figure out a time frame for the narcissist’s possible return, your efforts would be better spent educating yourself on all the reasons why you shouldn’t give him one more second of your life.
