Q & A – I have been told that my partner is a Narcissist – what can I do?

If you have been told that your partner may have narcissistic personality disorder (NPD), there are several steps you can take to protect your own well-being and seek support.

  1. Educate yourself: Learn more about NPD and how it can affect relationships. This can help you understand your partner’s behavior and make informed decisions about your next steps.
  2. Set boundaries: If your partner’s behavior is affecting your well-being, it is important to set clear boundaries and communicate them clearly. This may involve limiting contact or ending the relationship altogether.
  3. Seek support: Narcissistic behavior can be emotionally draining and can take a toll on your mental health. Consider seeking support from a therapist, support group, or trusted friend or family member.
  4. Take care of yourself: It is important to prioritize your own well-being and take care of yourself. This may involve engaging in self-care activities, seeking out hobbies and interests that bring you joy, and making time for your own needs.
  5. Consider couples therapy: If you are in a relationship with someone who may have NPD and you wish to work on the relationship, couples therapy can be a helpful tool. However, it is important to find a therapist who is experienced in working with individuals with NPD and can provide support for both you and your partner.

Ultimately, the decision of whether to stay in a relationship with someone who may have NPD is a personal one that only you can make. It is important to prioritize your own well-being and seek support as needed.
