Recovering from dating a sociopath
I have been seeing lots of posts on Facebook about people giving in to others who take advantage of them.
Examples are loaning money that is not returned, doing favors for others that are not in the end, helpful, continuing toxic relationships because of guilt about being “cold hearted”.
The only problem is he won’t call me his girlfriend.
I’ve tried bringing it up and when I do he almost makes me feel guilty about it and says things like ‘what we have is so special, why do we have to label it?
I told him I would give him space while he figured things out but he said he couldn’t ask me to do that.
I asked if there was a chance for us once he got things sorted and he said he isn’t sure if he sees a future. I remember, years ago, when I was extremely unhappy with my job and a few other areas of my life.
Can you please shed some light on what’s going on here?It is like two pieces of the puzzle coming together. If you have one parent who is narcissistic you are likely to become either codependent or narcissistic yourself.If you have two narcissistic parents the same holds true.They push blame off on others and are unable to see their own part in wrong doing.It is easy to see how codependents and narcissists get hooked up. It is found that there are familial links to this interaction.
