10 Powerful Narcissist Quotes That Will Hit You in the Feels

Sharing is caring!

You know I write an awful lot about healing from the past and forgiving others and all that kind of good stuff. I also write a lot of articles on quotes and this one is no different. I thought today I would marry the two topics, healing and quotes and share with you 10 powerful narcissist quotes that will shake you up, wake you up and remind you why you left or why you should leave!

Dealing with a narcissist

Oy. How many of you have had many sleepless nights because of your narcissist husband, wife, boyfriend or girlfriend? I’ve had my fair share that’s for sure. I can remember nights going to bed sick to my stomach and wishing the world would just end and take me out of my misery.

It’s no fun. At all.

I knew without a shadow of a doubt that no matter what I said or did, nothing was going to change. My narcissistic boyfriend was not going to change. If I wanted to be happy and live a relatively normal-ish life I had two choices:

  • leave him, or
  • ignore him and put up with it

You already know which one I chose. I left him and no it wasn’t easy. I had nothing to my name. Not even two cents to rub together but I knew if I ever wanted to be happy this was what I had to do. Dealing with a narcissist is a battle and a fight you will never win. And you will never be happy.

Narcissistic behavior hurts everyone

For many of us, the signs aren’t so clear. I know personally that I just thought narcissistic behavior was simply because of the way they were raised and they didn’t know any better. Like they didn’t have better role models to nurture them and help them grow into loving kind human beings.

I didn’t even know that narcissistic behavior was a thing. It wasn’t until much later on in life that one of my sister’s informed me that we were raised by a narcissistic mother. I had no clue. I just thought she was a product of her upbringing.

This behavior is damaging to everyone even the narcissist, though they don’t think it does. I feel that independent of the fact that these people in our lives are narcissists I honestly don’t believe they are happy. I think they are very sad and broken people operating on an extreme defense mechanism level.

Narcissistic abuse is no joke

If you or someone you know is dealing with a narcissist please do them or yourself a favour and learn either how to deal with them or find the courage to leave. The long term effects of narcissistic abuse can go on for years. I feel I have finally healed from all the narcissists in my life but every now and then a trigger comes up and whammo!

I’m curled up in a ball crying again. I hope one day this eventually ends. So many, too many, of us don’t heal or don’t even know we’re in a relationship with a narcissist.

If you’re not sure if you are dealing with someone who has narcissistic personality disorder, this blog I wrote awhile back might help you understand them a bit more. You really should read it if you are unsure. It explains a lot!

Narcissist Quotes

Without further ado, I will now share 10 powerful and intense narcissist quotes that will certainly hit you hard in the feels.

Narcissists try to destroy your life with lies because they know theirs can be destroyed with the truth.

They will do anything in their power to make your life a living hell, even lie. Remember you deserve so much more than that. Find your voice and speak your own truth.

Narcissists are masters of pathologizing your emotions. They convince you that your emotional reactions to the abuse are the problem, rather than the abuse itself. ~Shahida Arabi

They will tell you it’s all in your head and that you are the problem. They will tell you that you are overreacting. Don’t buy into any of it. The abuse is the problem, not you.

The narcissist doesn’t want your love, they don’t know what love is. They want your admiration and obedience as a player in their fake make believe world.

They have no idea how to love. Maybe because they were never given the love we all deserve growing up. They thrive on having their ego fed and by you playing their game, it gets fed. Don’t play their game.

Narcissists don’t change because they don’t want to change. They want to keep on using and abusing because it gets them the attention they so desperately crave. ~Anne McCrea

They are attention seekers. Remember that! As long as they keep getting the attention they crave and desire they will never change. Why would they?

16 narcissist quotes

 If you don’t heal what hurt you, you will bleed all over those who didn’t cut you. 

Please don’t forget to share these narcissist quotes!

This quote actually works both ways. The narcissist will bleed all over you because he/she hasn’t healed. The other way this quote about narcissists can be read is that you need to heal from your ex narcissistic partner or you will bleed over the next person.

Truth is like surgery. It hurts but it cures. A lie is like a pain killer. It gives instant relief but has side effects forever.

Read that one many times if you have to. A lie is a lie is a lie and you will feel the pain from that lie forever. Part of narcissistic personality disorder is lying, a lot, all the time. Notice the signs, get out.

A narcissist will manipulate everyone around you to betray you. This is not a reflection of who you are but more of a reflection of the narcissist powers of manipulation and the integrity of other people.

You know there’s a quote that goes something like this: live your life in such a way that if anyone spoke badly of you, no one would believe them. Your true friend and the people who matter and care won’t believe the narcissist’s lies. If they do, you don’t need these people in your life.

A narcissist doesn’t care how he makes you feel as long as he provokes an emotion from you it makes him feel superior and powerful. But one day you will look at him and feel nothing.

One day you will get to the point where you feel nothing, you finally see right through him and you make the decision to go. I hope you find the courage and strength to do that sooner than later.

These narcissist quotes may not be great to read but I share them with you now to open your eyes to the truth behind narcissism.

10 narcissist quotes

They will suck the life right out of you. Many of them know and see your spark, your beauty and how much people adore and love you. This will make them insanely jealous and they won’t have any of that. You know what I mean.

And the last narcissist quotes I want to share is this one:

The only way to win with a toxic person is not to play.

Just don’t. It’s so not worth it and you will lose every time. You will lose lots of things. Things like:

  • self worth
  • self esteem
  • self confidence
  • self respect
  • self love

Is it worth it? Heck no! If you are in a toxic narcissistic relationship right now and too afraid to leave try to find someone to talk to or who can help you. Too many of us never leave and live in misery day in and day out. Remember that’s not why we are here.

We are here to live in joy. We deserve love and to be happy. Whatever you are going through or dealing with, know you don’t have to. I know leaving is scary and hard but it’s not impossible. When I decided to leave my narcissistic boyfriend my whole world opened up to amazing opportunities and miracles.

Trust that this will happen for you too. I hope these narcissist quotes hit you in the feels like they were meant to do. Not hurt you, but wake you up.
