The relationship between an empath and a narcissist is perhaps the most toxic bond between two individuals.
On one hand are narcissists.
All of them share this one common trait. They are emotionally hurt. The behavior of a narcissist derives from struggling with an emotional trauma usually experienced through their childhood. Behind the cover of a pretty selfish individual, lies a heart which has been through a lot of pain and emotionally difficult moments. That is why the narcissist is in need of constant validation from others. These people want others to praise them by telling them they are incredible and amazing. And no better person than an empath could do this.
