When a narcissist won’t leave you alone

• The narcissist may continue to contact the individual through various means, such as phone calls, text messages, or social media.

– This is because they cannot bear the thought of not having someone to shower with their self-love and adoration. They will try every possible way to stay in touch.

• They may use manipulation tactics to try and convince the person to stay in contact with them.

– Gaslighting? Check! Love bombing? Double check! Narcissists are experts at manipulating people into doing what they want.

• Narcissists often struggle with accepting rejection and may refuse to let go of a relationship even after it has ended.

– To a narcissist, rejection is like kryptonite. It shatters their ego into tiny pieces that they can’t glue back together without someone else’s help.

• In some cases, the narcissist may become aggressive or threatening towards the individual if they feel their control over them slipping away.

– When all else fails, some narcissists turn violent. It’s important for individuals dealing with this kind of behavior from a persistent ex-partner to take necessary precautions for their own safety.

• It is important for individuals dealing with a persistent narcissist to set clear boundaries and stick to them consistently.

– Boundaries are like garlic bread when dealing with vampires – you gotta have ’em! Be firm about your limits and don’t allow anyone (even an egomaniac) cross those lines.

• Seeking support from friends, family members, or professionals can also be helpful in navigating this situation.

– You know who always has good advice? Your momma! And maybe also your therapist. Don’t hesitate reaching out for help when you need it most!

• The narcissist may try guilt-tripping the individual into staying in contact by making them feel responsible for their emotional well-being

– “Oh nooo I’m so lonely without you!” *cue fake tears* Don’t fall for this emotional blackmail! You are not responsible for anyone else’s happiness.

• They may also use flattery or compliments as a way of keeping the person engaged with them.

– “You’re so pretty/smart/funny/awesome, I can’t live without you!” Give me a break. If they were really that great, why did you leave in the first place?

• Narcissists often have an inflated sense of self-importance and believe they are entitled to attention and admiration from others

– It’s like they think their poop doesn’t stink. News flash: it does!

• In some cases, the narcissist may resort to stalking behavior or other forms of harassment if they feel ignored or rejected by the individual.

– This is where things get scary. Keep evidence of any harassing behavior (emails, texts, voicemails) and report it to authorities if necessary.

• It is important for individuals dealing with a persistent narcissist to prioritize their own safety and well-being above all else.

– Your health and safety should always come first! Take care of yourself before worrying about someone who only thinks about themselves.

• Seeking legal assistance or involving law enforcement may be necessary in extreme cases where the individual feels threatened or unsafe.

– Sometimes even garlic bread isn’t enough. If your ex-partner becomes violent or threatening towards you, don’t hesitate seeking help from professionals who know how to deal with these situations effectively.
