A narcissist is back and forth with feeling emotion for another. They want to make one feel as if they want attention and then when they get it- they push it away. This is on the account that they do not want to admit or show that they indeed do need someone. It is common for somebody with this condition to love for someone to feel sorry for them- will not admit this or have a hard time admitting this. When it comes time to look at their thinking critically- they will shut down. Counseling could be the answer, but the person must for sure want the help.

Should you ignore your narcissist when he is abusive?

Yes, you should ignore him or anybody who is abusive. The truth is: nobody is perfect and sometimes we need people to teach us a lesson. Ignoring him is the best thing you could do for him and for YOU. If he really loves you, he will eventually realize he made a mistake but this would only happen if you ignore him long enough, and this means, ignoring his first attempts to contact you, it is hard but at the end it is worth it. Good luck =)

What is the primary motive of the abuser in an abusive relationship?

For the most part, those that show abusive behavior are reflectant of how they were treated during their childhood.

Did I pushed my husband to cheat twice because I am an abusive wife?

Probably, if he's not happy at home he'll go somewhere else and who would be happy with an abusive wife??ANSWERNo regardless of the dynamics of the relationship you have with your husband - he is responsible for his own behavior. If you are abusive and you want to stay with him, get help. If you are not abusive you need to decide if you want to be with this person who would not only cheat but blame you for his own bad behavior. It's a lot to think about.

Is there any way to get back an emotionally abusive narcissist who was once in your life but has 'discarded' you from theirs?

Be disrespectful to yourself and shower hm/her with exaggerated respect. Humiliate yourself and worship the narcissist. Be his/her loyal slave. You have the choice to either respect the narcissist or yourself, because you can't respect both of you at the same time. Choose wisely. Please don't do yourself a disservice by trying to get a narcissist back into your life. You answered your own question...they dicarded you from theirs...just as they will continue to do with either you or others. You are worth much more than that. That person will not respect you or give you the love you deserve. Why would you want to re-introduce an abusive narcissist into your life? Count your blessings for having gotten rid of him!

Is persistent childish behavior abusive?

very behavior - including infantile behavior - is abusive if it bothers you, you asked the perpetrator to stop, and he won't. Childish behavior is usually an attempt to avoid responsibility, accountability, and, above all, intimacy. "Abuse" is when the behavior is causing harm to another person, whether it be physical or mental abuse. If this childish behavior is harming someone, then it may be considered abuse. If they are simply being selfish, you may not like it but it probably isn't really harming you.

Can get an answer from an abuser if you ask them reason for their abusive nature?

No, because if they are still being abusive, they see the world from another perspective. If you are expecting that this will happen or that you can convince someone that they are abusive, chances are that you won't see it happen. About all you can do is to call them on their behavior, saying how it makes you feel. A good book is Patricia Evan's The Abusive Relationship.

Get Out Now! Don't worry about him, he is an adult, and narcissist have an uncanny way of surviving. They, eventually, just adopt another personality and pretend the previous life did not exist. Read all you can about Narcissism and how scarry it is. Read how manipulative narcissists are and how they will try to fool you if they feel you are going to abandon them (until they want to abandon you!). Read how in danger - emotionally - you really are. Read how every commentary written about people (and even by people who ARE narcissists) who stay with narcissists are told "GET AWAY." Then, do it!

Will a narcissist in beginning dating move fast and act charming and flattering?

Yes- a narcissist will become everything that you want him to be. He will be super sweet and want to give you the sun moon and stars. He will buy you gifts and wine and dine you. When he knows he has you hooked he will then let the mask slip and start to be verbally/emotionally abusive. In my case I really don't think he realized how much damage he was doing. Whenever you are with a person whose behavior is clearly not aceptable for a relationship and they give you a hard time about confronting them, 9 out of ten times, you're with a narcissist! RUN don't walk to the nearest therapist and find out why you have let this person in your life!!
