If you are an empath, then you are a narcissist. Just as the sun and moon, day and night, male and female- divine order is greatly ruled by the law of polarity. This law states that everything has two “poles”: good and evil or love and hate. Just like North and South, the law of polarity states everything has an opposite. However, yin and yang teach us that although the opposite parts are separate, they are equal. What exists within one, must exist within the other to create balance.
In psychology, narcissism is listed as a personality order. Like dissociative disorder or bipolar disorder, which are highly reported in empaths. A personality disorder is a mask that has been created over years based on the perception and experiences of the individual. For example, both narcissist and empath core issues lie in fear of abandonment, and each have developed behaviors that protect them from this greatest fear. These masks have similar qualities that feed off one another to stay alive.
Simply put, both narcissist and empath can read others. It is how they choose to use this information that differs the individuals. This concept can even be seen in student and teacher. If you are a student, you essentially become a teacher. In empath-narcissist relationships, the student/empath often surpasses the teacher/narcissist in many ways. Not only mastering the art of empathy but also mastering the art of narcissism. This is where free will comes into play.
In love, I acted as a victimized siren who was deserving of retribution and retaliation. Still unknowing of the power of my words, I had written a story in which I was good, and my lover was evil. Ironically, creating this narrative with another human being as my oppressor transformed my supposed superhero story into the backstory on how to create a villain. I was determined to change this narrative, so I began digging even deeper into narcissism.
