But the narcissist’s false kindness does not come without a cost.
It’s also important to identify what the narcissist wants from you. This could be anything including money, housework, caring for the kids, or any obligations the narcissist feels are beneath them and must be cast upon someone less-than.
In other cases, the narcissist may just want a proverbial punching bag to blame for their problems or unleash their emotional (and sometimes physical) abuse.
But responding to their false kindness and compassion by returning the favor won’t get you anything but further abuse.
