Why Narcissists Suck the Life Out of You

"No matter what good traits your narcissistic brother, partner or parent might have, the nature of narcissistic interactions goes deep to your core by violating your boundaries and manipulating you to the point of exhaustion. When I've been in close contact with the narcissists in my life I have literally felt like so much has been taken from me on an emotional level that I have nothing left to give. In fact, there's nothing left to give to myself, either. The narcissist doesn't care though. All their attention is directed outwards and they feed off others' reactions. It's an insatiable appetite which can never be satisfied."
