Narcissists Blame You for Their Cheating & Betrayal: Here’s Why

Written by Angela Atkinson


Narcissist Cheating: Why the Narcissist Blames You for Their Cheating and Betrayal – Here’s the truth. When a narcissist is caught cheating on you or otherwise betraying you in your relationship, they will almost never take responsibility for the betrayal. In fact, one of the most common ways they refuse responsibility is to weakly apologize (if at all) and then immediately begin to point out everything they think is wrong with YOU in the relationship.

“This is not my fault; it’s a symptom of the problems in our relationship.”

And I am here to tell you that this is NOT the truth. You are not the problem here. In fact, this is a known manipulation tactic that narcissists will sometimes employ to shift blame when they do things like cheat on you or otherwise betray you.

Things you need to understand if you are codependent with a cheater: They are not sorry they betrayed you. The only thing they MIGHT be sorry about is that you found out and now they have to deal with your feelings, which they will quickly turn back on you in order to remove blame for their behavior.
