Whether or not to give up on a narcissist is a personal decision that depends on a variety of factors, including the severity of the narcissism, the impact on your well-being, and your own personal boundaries and values.
In some cases, it may be necessary to end a relationship with a narcissist if their behavior is harmful, abusive, or destructive to your well-being. This may involve setting clear boundaries and communicating them clearly, seeking support from a therapist or support group, and prioritizing your own self-care and well-being.
In other cases, working with a therapist who is experienced in treating individuals with narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) can be a helpful tool. While it can be challenging to work with someone with NPD, therapy can help individuals with this condition learn coping skills, develop more positive self-perceptions, and improve their relationships with others.
Ultimately, the decision of whether to give up on a narcissist is a personal one that only you can make. It is important to prioritize your own well-being and seek support as needed.
