In this article, we’ll explore whether or not a narcissist ever misses the person they abused.
It’s important to note that narcissist is different, and there is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. However, based on the characteristics of the disorder, it is unlikely that a narcissist will ever truly miss the person they abused.
Narcissists have a strong sense of entitlement and a constant need for admiration and attention. They may view their partner as an extension of themselves, rather than as an individual with their own thoughts, feelings, and desires. When a narcissist abuses their partner, it is often a way to maintain control and power over them, rather than a display of love or affection.
In many cases, a narcissist may feel a sense of satisfaction or even pleasure from abusing their partner. They may enjoy the feeling of power and control they have over them, and may not see any reason to stop the abuse.
Even if a narcissist does end the relationship, it is unlikely that they will truly miss their partner. Narcissists are often able to move on quickly from relationships, and may not feel any real emotional attachment to their former partner. They may view their ex-partner as weak or inferior, and may feel little to no remorse for the abuse they inflicted.
However, it’s important to remember that everyone is capable of change, and it is possible for a narcissist to seek help and work on improving their behavior. If you are in a relationship with a narcissist and are experiencing abuse, it’s important to seek help and support from a qualified mental health professional. They can provide guidance and resources to help you leave the relationship safely and heal from the trauma of the abuse.
While every narcissist is different, it is unlikely that a narcissist will ever truly miss the person they abused. Narcissists have a strong sense of entitlement and a need for power and control, and may view their partner as an extension of themselves rather than as an individual. If you are experiencing abuse from a narcissist, it’s important to seek help and support from a qualified mental health professional.
