• Narcissists may leave for good if they find a new source of narcissistic supply.
When it comes to narcissists, their need for attention and admiration can never be quenched. If they come across someone who seems like an easy target or is more willing to feed their ego than the current victim, then there’s a high chance that they’ll ditch the old one without thinking twice.
• A narcissist leaving for good depends on their level of attachment to the current victim and how much control they have over them.
Narcissists love having power over others, so if they feel like their grip on you is slipping away or you’re no longer serving any purpose in boosting their self-esteem, then consider yourself outta here! However, if you manage to break free from their grasp before this happens, then kudos to you!
• If the victim becomes too difficult or unresponsive, the narcissist may choose to leave for good.
Narcissists thrive on being in control. So when things don’t go according to plan with their victims (i.e., not responding as expected), some might take this as a sign of weakness and move onto greener pastures.
• However, some narcissists never truly leave and will continue to manipulate and harass their victims even after ending the relationship.
Some people just can’t let go – especially when it comes down to getting what they want. Even though these types of individuals are toxic AF (and we all know it), sometimes we still fall prey due our own vulnerabilities.
• The likelihood of a narcissist leaving for good also depends on whether there are any legal consequences or restraining orders involved.
Let’s face it: nobody wants legal trouble…well except maybe lawyers? Anyway- When a restraining order gets slapped against them by authorities; most likely your ex-narc won’t stick around long enough until he/she figures out how many hours community service would entail.
• Narcissists may leave for good if they feel like they have exhausted all opportunities to gain control and power over their victim.
Narcissists are constantly looking for ways to assert dominance. If you’ve managed to cut off every avenue of manipulation, then there’s a good chance that the narcissist will move onto someone else who is more susceptible.
• A narcissist leaving for good is more likely if the victim has a strong support system and can resist manipulation tactics.
Having friends or family members who understand what you’re going through can make all the difference when dealing with a break up from a toxic partner. When it comes down to it, having people in your corner not only helps boost your self-esteem but also makes it harder for any future attempts at contact by said ex-narc (who we hope stays away).
• However, some narcissists will never leave because they enjoy the sense of power and control that comes with having a victim.
Some people just love being on top – literally! The feeling of knowing that someone depends solely on them gives these types of individuals an ego-boost like no other. So even though this might sound crazy AF; don’t be surprised if your ex-narc tries to come back into your life once again!
• If the narcissist finds another source of supply, there’s a high chance that they’ll leave for good without looking back at their previous victims.
When one door closes…another one opens? For narcisstic personalities; finding new prey means forgetting about old ones entirely as soon as possible. This could mean deleting contacts/social media accounts/emails etc., so keep an eye out!
• In rare cases, a narcissist may realize their behavior is harmful and seek professional help leading them genuinely change and leave for good as part of their healing process
Believe it or not: sometimes miracles do happen! It’s very rare but occasionally narcs do see the error of their ways and seek professional help. If this happens, then there’s a good chance that they’ll leave for good as part of their healing process (and hopefully won’t come back to wreak havoc on your life again).
