5 Dark Truths Behind the Dreaded “Discard”
Anyone who knows anything about the phases of a relationship with a narcissistic individual understands, all too well, the dreaded “Discard” stage.
If you’re just learning about narcissistic traits, the ‘discard phase’ is where you seemingly fall from grace in the narcissist’s eyes and they begin telling you all that’s supposedly “wrong” with you, why you’re not good relationship material, and where they begin playing the field or returning to one of their Exes (sometimes both).
For someone who’s deeply in love with the narcissist by this point, the discard can feel utterly devastating. So much so that it often destroys lives, literally.
Many people who feel they’ve been discarded truly believe that the narcissist will never give them the time of day again…indeed, that the narcissist can barely stand to be in the same room with them or even the sight of them.
To add insult to injury, they believe they’ll never see the narcissist again.
And in some cases, the narcissist does leave…never to be heard from again.
But that’s not what usually happens. If you are in the process of a seeming discard, then follow closely, because the truth is, most discards are not what they initially seem.
