Top Tips to Enable a Narcissist

Narcissism is a personality disorder characterised by a deep need for excessive attention and admiration, a lack of empathy for others, and an inflated sense of self-importance. Such relationships are typically unhealthy and toxic. However, to play the devil’s advocate, let’s explore how one could enable a narcissist:

Always Put Their Needs First

The narcissist sees themselves as the center of the universe. To enable this, always put their needs before yours. Your wants, dreams, and aspirations should take a backseat to their desires.

Give Unlimited Admiration

Narcissists thrive on admiration. Make sure to provide a constant supply of praise, compliments, and attention. Never let them question their superiority.

Never Confront or Challenge

Never point out a narcissist’s flaws or mistakes. They should always be right, and your role is to support this illusion at all times.

Endlessly Tolerate

Narcissists will often cross boundaries. As an enabler, you should tolerate this behavior without expressing discomfort or discontent.

Take the Blame

If there’s a problem, assume it’s your fault. Narcissists rarely accept blame, so it’s best for you to shoulder all responsibility to keep the peace.

Ignore Your Feelings

Your emotions should never disrupt the narcissist’s world. Always keep your feelings to yourself, especially if they involve the narcissist’s behavior.

Keep the Status Quo

To enable a narcissist, avoid any suggestions of therapy or change. They are perfect in their eyes, and any suggestion to the contrary could disrupt the status quo.
