Narcissists are extremely predictable. Once they have been uncovered or confronted, they will cower in the distance until enough time has passed for them to dodge accountability. When backed into a corner this personality type will gaslight, deflect, or lie by omission to escape the corner, and find a new place to hide. Usually in the arms of another. Narcissistic personalities are like the Bluebeard archetype. In the story of Bluebeard, he wears a bright blue beard to mask the dark and deceitful person behind it.
#However, Bluebeard’s lover also wears a mask. Whenever I would confront my lover about something that made me uncomfortable, I often realized I was projecting my own issues onto him. He was off running around doing lord knows what, but I was also sitting home doing nothing on my own volition (free will). I was hiding behind the chains of his boundaries, but I naïvely chose to be there. Wasting countless hours psychoanalyzing his issues, only for the cycle to continuously repeat itself.
Energy cannot be created or destroyed it can only be transferred. Spiritually speaking, the energy omitted from a Bluebeard/Narcissistic archetype exists to create balance between good and evil. Although my lover and I had immense Bluebeard/Narcissistic qualities in our relationship, does not mean either of us were evil. We were two humans who were swept up in spiritual warfare and subconsciously making choices that fed the evil side.
I once heard, “it should be you and your partner versus the problem rather than you versus your partner.” I brought this philosophy into the relationship and implored that we get on the same team. Only instead of working together to stay together, we needed to work together to stay apart.
