This blog post explores reasons why it’s hard for an empath to read narcissists and evil people.
This might be the one question running through your mind as an empath.
You’ve heard many relationship stories about Empaths and Narcissists or evil people that can never end well, right?
It’s full of drama, trickery, deceit, manipulation, but they can’t seem to let go of each other.
One side thinks they can heal the other, and the other side thinks they can still gain much by staying together.
If you happen to have that kind of problem, there’s a chance that you’re a person with one of those personalities.
It also means that the other person possesses the opposite personality to you.
So, to understand more about these opposing personalities, let’s first find out why It’s so hard for an empath to read a narcissist.
The answer is easy.
Empaths have conflicting personalities with Narcissists.
An empath is someone highly sensitive to other people’s emotions. This allows them to feel what others feel.
On the other hand, a narcissist is someone with a very high sense of self-importance.
In short, they’re people that love themselves more than others.
Also, they can’t accept any criticism because they think they’re better than others.
Most of them also doesn’t care about others feeling.
The Reasons Why It’s Hard for An Empath To Read Narcissists And Evil People
1. Differences in their personalities.
This is one of the major reasons why it’s hard for an empath to read narcissists and evil people.
To read or understand other people, you have to have similar characteristics or experiences you can relate to.
So, when you try to understand people’s behavior, you use your life experience or behavior patterns as a yardstick to measure behavior.
This way, it becomes easy to understand other people’s behavior because you share similar experiences.
Based on this analysis, you can see why it’s hard for empaths to read narcissists and evil people.
This is because they don’t have similar experiences to relate each other’s behavior to.
Simply put, an empath can not put him/herself in a narcissist’s position to understand why a narcissist behaves the way he/she does.
Therefore, when an empath uses himself as a reference to read and understand a narcissist, it wouldn’t work.
This is simply because there are too many differences between these two personalities.
Hence, an empath will always have difficulty understanding narcissists or evil people.
2. Differences in their Perspectives; Why It’s Hard for An Empath To Read Narcissists And Evil People
Another reason why it’s hard for an empath to read narcissists and evil people is the way they think.
An empath shows concern about other people’s emotions, and a narcissist is not.
More so, an empath’s action is governed by selflessness and compassion.
On the other hand, a narcissist is governed by self-love and self-importance with almost no empathy for others.
This is because it is an empaths nature to care about other people, and this attention is what narcissists thrive on.
These perspectives govern their relationship with others.
Overall, it’s difficult for them to understand each other because of the conflicting perspectives between empath and narcissists.
Thereby making it difficult for an empath to understand narcissists or evil people.
There’ll always be problems when there is a relationship between Empath and Narcissist.
As I said, it’s full of drama, trickery, deceit, and manipulation.
This is because of their conflicting personalities.
Mostly, the Empath will receive the most damage caused by this kind of relationship.
So, as an empath in this kind of relationship, you’ll have to make a painful decision to let go of your narcissistic partner, especially if there are always misunderstandings.
This is to prevent yourself from getting hurt over and over again.
