Is My Ex a Narcissist?
Is My Ex A Narcissist?
Before you start labeling your ex with characterizations like psychopath, sociopath, borderline personality, and yes, the most popular among our female clients, narcissist, you should realize that you may be in a situation where your ex just doesn’t care right now. It’s like eating rat poison and expecting the rat to die.
All these labels may be applicable to your ex, but either way, the act of hurling names publicly can also hurt your chances to reconcile in more ways than one. If your ex is under the heavy influence of hatred, bitterness, and scorn, there is little you can do until they remove themselves from the influence of others and your own negative attitude.
When your ex is not responding under the most reasonable requests to communicate, your ex is either still under the influence of serious negativity from others and will not budge without time to truly sort out their thoughts by themselves, or they just might be a narcissist.
Truly being a narcissist or sociopath in the most extreme cases we typically coach strong no contact and sometimes extended no contact rules. After a certain amount of time, if your ex is still not responding and ignoring you altogether then we strongly encourage our clients to move on and accept that the relationship was not meant to be.
It is the saddest of predicaments, but unfortunately is a real scenario. Because each relationship is unique, if you need further help to discern the difference between an ex that simply wants space and if your ex is a true narcissist give us a call.
Remember, just because your ex is showing no feelings toward you today doesn’t mean they are a narcissist. They can still care about you, just not at the moment.
