Today we’re talking about the parasitic narcissist. It’s a fact that a parasitic narcissist wants everything you’ve got. The “lazy” narcissist will refuse to get a job and will do everything in their power to get you to pay for everything. They won’t stop until they’ve taken all you’ve got to give, and then some. A parasitic narcissist will suck you dry – financially, emotionally and otherwise.
What is a parasitic narcissist?
This is the type of person who refuses to get a decent job or to support him/herself and who believes that you (and the world) owe them something. This kind of person tends to have NPD (narcissistic personality disorder) or at least to be considered a toxic narcissist. They have a tendency to be attracted to empaths, and like all narcissists, will be highly prone to gaslighting and manipulation of their closest sources of narcissistic supply.
In this video, I’ll expand on the definition of a parasitic narcissist and explain exactly what you can expect from one. Plus, I’ll offer tips on how you might deal with a parasite narcissist.
