5 Dark Truths Behind the Dreaded “Discard”
How do you know if the Narcissist’s discarding of you
is permanent or temporary?
There is no way to know for sure. If the narcissist in question is a grudge-holder, then you probably won’t hear from them for a long time, if ever.
The grudge-holding, disappearing narcissist is not the most common scenario, though. And it’s hard to tell if your Ex falls into this category as they may fall off the grid for weeks, months, or even years, making it seem that the discard is permanent, and that’s why it’s so unpredictable.
The more common outcome is that the narcissist will triangulate, eventually want to be friends (with benefits), and offer a false confession that they’ve made the worst mistake of their lives.
And if you take them back, it will be the worst mistake of yours. Whether the discard is “permanent or temporary” should be up to you, not them. Their motives are intrinsically unstable. You need to determine if you are willing to be someone’s emotional punching bag and second choice for the rest of your life or if you believe you deserve better.
