Are You Living With a Narcissist? How Narcissism Affect Relationships & Signs You're With a Narcissist

Q. "How can narcissism affect life and relationships?"

Narcissists have difficulty loving their partners due to a lack of truly loving themselves. Their partner is often not viewed as a separate person; instead, their purpose is to fill the narcissist's needs. A narcissistic partner enjoys manipulation and will not be fully committed in the long term. Narcissists' lack of empathy makes their partners feel like they are an accessory, unimportant and lonely.

Q. "What are some signs of narcissism or that you are in a relationship with a narcissist?"

If your partner is overly obsessed with themselves, needs constant attention, always believes they are correct, excessively sensitive to criticism and has a superiority complex, you are most likely in a relationship with a narcissist. A narcissist will take over the conversation and proceed to extol their virtues. They have little interest in what their partner is saying or doing unless it directly pertains to them. They will also try to exert control over your life, perhaps separating you from friends or loved ones to gain more power over you.

When I met Dr. Okojie, my life changed. He use his spell to bring back our lost love and for the past six months now, me and Steve have been living happily together. At first, I didn't believe in Dr. Okojie spell but I had to give a try because I really love Steve and don't want to lose him. WhatsApp him: +39 351 028 2398
