Narcissists have a way of hurting us so badly that it pushes us to the point of seeking revenge. However, that begs the question, what is the best way to get revenge against a narcissist?
Well to be completely honest, cutting ties is the best way to get even with them. Continuing to engage with a narcissist once you’ve identified him or her will only cause you more pain whether you are trying to get even or not. After suffering at the hand of the narcissist we are not in a place where getting revenge is realistically possible. Nine times out of ten we are still suffering ourselves.
Don’t get me wrong, you might want to finally get the last word or even one-up them but in the end that is not going to be worth your time. While you should not pity the narcissist, you need to understand that they already are operating on a level that cannot be helped. Even if you get even it’s not going to make a difference in their mind and they will just keep coming back at you.
The best way to get revenge is to continue on and live your life without having to deal with them. In order to do this, you must recover yourself, mind, body and soul. By removing yourself from the life of the narcissist and refusing to supply him or her with the attention that they ‘need’ is the ultimate revenge. While in your mind it may seem minor it has much more of an impact than you realize.
While sometimes we are forced to continue to interact with the narcissist be it through work or otherwise we don’t have to let them have power over us. Keeping an emotional distance and removing their control over what you do and how you feel will make a huge difference. Through taking your power back you are getting revenge. Don’t waste your time trying to tear them down, use your energy on something that will benefit you in the long run. You deserve so much more than you realize.
