• Show that you are moving on and living your best life without them.
You know what’s better than making a narcissist regret leaving you? Living your best life without them. Go out, have fun, and show the world how amazing you can be even when they’re not around.
• Ignore their attempts to contact or manipulate you.
Narcissists thrive on attention and control. By ignoring their attempts to contact or manipulate you, you take away their power over you. It may feel hard at first but trust me; it will get easier with time.
• Focus on self-improvement and personal growth.
The best revenge is becoming the best version of yourself possible! Take up new hobbies, learn new skills, travel—whatever makes YOU happy!
• Surround yourself with supportive friends and family who uplift you.
When dealing with a narcissistic ex-partner, having a support system is crucial. Make sure to surround yourself with people who love and care about you unconditionally.
• Don’t engage in any negative behavior or communication towards the narcissist.
As tempting as it may be to lash out at your ex for hurting you, resist the urge! Negative behavior only gives them more ammunition against us.
• Build a strong sense of confidence and self-worth independent of their validation.
Remember: You don’t need anyone else’s approval or validation to know that YOU are awesome!
• Remember that their leaving was ultimately their loss, not yours.
It might hurt right now because breakups suck—but remember this: They lost someone who loved them genuinely while we gained freedom from toxicity!
• Avoid seeking revenge or trying to make them jealous; it will only backfire
Trying to make someone jealous never ends well (trust me). Instead focus all that energy into building an incredible future for yourself – one where they’ll wish they were still by our side
• Allow yourself time to heal before attempting any form of interaction again.
Don’t rush yourself into anything you’re not ready for. Take all the time you need to heal and process your emotions before considering any interaction with them again.
• Show them that you are not dependent on them for your happiness or well-being.
The best way to show a narcissist what they missed out on is by being genuinely happy without them! So go ahead, live your life like it’s golden!
• Be successful in your career and personal life, which will make them feel like they missed out.
Nothing stings more than seeing someone who was once beneath us now flourishing while we remain stagnant. So let’s become our own version of success!
• Don’t try to seek their validation or approval anymore; focus on yourself instead
We don’t have space in our lives for people who can only give conditional love. Focus on loving ourselves first – the rest will fall into place eventually
• Make sure that you have a strong support system so that you don’t feel alone during this time
When dealing with something as tough as breaking up with a narcissistic partner, having friends and family around makes all the difference.
• Remember that narcissists crave attention and admiration, so by ignoring them, you’re taking away what they want most from you.
Narcissists feed off attention like vampires do blood—so starve ’em of it! By ignoring their attempts at contact or manipulation, we take away their power over us.
• If the narcissist tries to come back into your life be cautious about letting them back in without setting clear boundaries first
If an ex-narcissist comes crawling back after leaving us high-and-dry previously? Proceed with caution—and lots of self-love (and maybe pepper spray).
