One of the most frustrating things about our narcissistic family members is they see nothing wrong with the mass destruction they leave in their wake. They have no interest in changing, and do not appear to suffer from, or recognize, their complete lack of empathy. This is exactly what allows them to continue on as the vile person they are.
In fact, the more they abuse, the more divorced from empathy they become. The more divorced from empathy they become, the crueler they grow to be. For this reason, they will continually up the anti on the heartless ways in which they treat you.
If you can recognize this and understand that people like this do exists in the family system, you won’t be so hard on yourself when you choosing to remove them from your life.
If you have removed them, they earned it.
