In the narcissist’s life, never overlook the fact that he or she views your relationship with him or her as similar to a “plug and play” electronic device.
In your relationship with the narcissist, the narcissist views you as someone whose sole purpose is to perform for him or her without requiring any real input/upkeep/or engagement on the narcissist’s part.
The narcissists “plugs” you in and you are expected to “play” or perform for him or her based on the narcissist’s needs.
Otherwise, you will be forgotten.
Ever wonder how a narcissist moves on so quickly after a relationship ends?
Simple- they moved on and found a new device to plug and play.
And that new device, I guarantee you, will be performing the exact some function as you did in the narcissist’s life.
THe narcissist never changes, they simply move on and find different devices with which to play.
