Today I talk about cheating narcissists, the reasons behind cheating, and what it is that narcissists pursue by doing it. We also cover narcissists’ strong protective parts, how codependents in a relationship trigger cheating behaviours, and the difference between healthy and narcissistic abusive relationships.
What You Will Learn In This Episode:
- The reasons behind your partner’s cheating
- The role of self-soothing in cheating behaviours
- What happens when two wounded younger parts meet in a relationship
- How cheating can satisfy the need for narcissistic supply
- Why we need to be mindful and empathetic with those who choose to stay in a cheating relationship
When we are cheated on, we tend to think it is our fault, that we are not good enough, not worthy. But when a narcissistic partner cheats on us, it’s not about us, but about their wounded younger parts, and their need to feel that sense of grandiosity.
