Narcissists are a perplexing, painful topic. They are me-oriented people who do not hesitate to harm someone in order to elevate themselves. Worse, they lie and confuse their victims by misrepresenting facts and intentions.
There's one specific sort of personality on which narcissists prey most often and with special vigor: Empaths.
Empaths are highly intuitive people with finely tuned sensitivities to the people and environment about them. Giving, altruistic, and sometimes naive, empaths can be helpful to a fault: theirs. They give too much, wearing themselves out. Empaths need to focus on boundaries, limits that protect their inner and outer health.
Narcissists tend to abuse the giving nature of empathic people, taking advantage of their time, focus, and energy. Sometimes they steal items or damage reputations, too. It's an expression of the narcissist's manipulative "Me, me, me" mindset.
Want to end the problem, or at least to minimize it?
The book is filled with proven strategies for protecting yourself from unusually selfish people, narcissists included, even if you're not an empath.
As Dr. Orloff writes in her book-related blog, "In my book The Empath’s Survival Guide I discuss that empaths must strike a balance of energy going out and energy coming in. Sensitive people have such big hearts that they often err on the side of giving too much to friends, family, spouses, and children. This wears you out.
I've reviewed Dr. Orloff's books for years, and recommend them highly.
If a narcissist is bothering you, read The Empath’s Survival Guide.
