Chickens all come home to roost. The people they took for granted simply ain’t there any longer and these were the ones who had the narcissists back. The same friends, partners or colleagues who continually went out of their way for their narcissistic acquaintance only to be used, shafted or ditched when a better offer came along.
Narcissists don’t do loyalty well at all which of course is at odds with the complete rubbish they speak. Fine, well & good from their perspective when they can get away with it as always another gullible soul ready to fill their shoes but age has that nasty habit of creeping up on us faster than we realise. You cant keep duping people forever expecting there to be little to no consequence to your actions.
The great friends who stood by them moved on a while back. Friends who were replaced very rarely return. Why should they? Its payback time.
Those ex colleagues working for rival firms or who gained promotion will have done their utmost to ensure the the word gets out there. Narcissists make great employees to start but a few years in companies cant wait to get shot of.
Most importantly the great partners who stood by through thick and thin moved on a while back and likely much happier and contented now there’s someone normal in their life as opposed to an aging prima donna.
In the end no one from their past wants anything to do with them. If their lucky there may still be a sibling that takes pity but that’s not to say contact wont be anything other than arms length.
Narcissists need attention, preferably adulation but the greatest fear of all is being alone. Irony being that past behaviours ensure that this is exactly what happens to them and quicker than most.
Suggest read chapter ‘The Aging narcissist’ in book entitled:
‘Prepare to be tortured. The price you will pay for dating a narcissist’.
