From what I have found I do not agree with the premise here that opposites attract, or an Empath would align with a Narcissist it is a major leap to a wrong conclusion. A Victim aligns with a Narcissist not an Empath and I will explain how from my point of view.
For a start everyone has issues, hurts, rejection and abandonment wounds from their life. These are created at the moment our own mind makes a decision about what just happened. Good / bad, cruel, nasty, harsh, deliberate, mean, hurtful, stressful, traumatic etc. It is that moment of categorising that can impact upon a person for the rest of their lives in some cases. Here is an example of how one event can have two very different outcomes.
Child ‘A’ has an ice cream and Child ‘B’ doesn’t. Child ‘B’ wanted an ice cream too and felt sad and stressed, so they pushed the Child ‘A’ over and took their ice cream. There are plenty of screams and tears and their parents rushed to separate the children and they gave the ice cream back to the child who was pushed over.
The parent of Child ‘A’ says “Aww, that wasn’t fair, that mean child pushed you over and now your ice cream is ruined, aww, you poor little thing. That child was a bully.” And they were comforted after their ordeal.
The next time they see that Child ‘B’ in the park, they feel stressed and nervous so the parent takes their child away so no bad situations can happen again. But in that moment the child does not get a chance to see what could develop. Maybe Child ‘B” was going to apologise, buy them an ice cream or try to make things right? These factors they will never know by avoiding them.
Now Child ‘B’ could have been asked “Why did you do that?” and Child ‘B’ said “That I really wanted an ice cream, and they wouldn’t share and they teased me and then I felt hurt and angry so I pushed them over, and took their ice cream.”
If their parent said “Well it was wrong they teased you and they were mean for not sharing and that you were right for standing up for yourself and taking their ice cream, they might learn to share from now on.
At this point both children could be feeling wronged. Both children could feel that things weren’t fair but the decisions they made at that time could have shaped their behaviour from that moment.
So this story is presented to show that the behaviour of the Victim and the Narcissist began at the same point. When they both felt that things weren’t fair but chose different ways to express themselves and get their needs met. So the easiest target for a Narcissist is someone who behaves with a Victim energy circuit. In fact the Narcissist has no ability to manipulate a person who does not behave in that way, they would tell them where to go.
The Victim, requires a partner or boss who is available to exploit their good nature. The victim will always know this is what’s happening but will be often powerless to change and move on. Love and fear are magnetic. The whole story comes back to Like attracts Like….even if their way of expressing themselves looks completely different.
