‘A wolf in sheep’s clothing’ is a phrase that dates back to both the Bible and Aesop’s Fables. It is a cautionary tale of someone who appears harmless but is actually quite dangerous.

If you interfere with their world…with their hunt…with their win — you will fare far worse.

The narcissist will still behave badly. They have no other choice. It is instinctual to them because they lack empathy.

Because to provoke the absolute worst in a narcissist, you must ‘in their eyes’ wrong them. The narcissist lives in their own perception of reality. They do not live in actual reality. This can be explained by their lack of empathy. No one else exists in their hemisphere. Thus, an individual who suffers from narcissistic personality disorder will stop at nothing to destroy someone they believe did them wrong. Someone who dared to mess with their world.

No one leaves the narcissist. How dare they? No one interrupts the narcissist's world…their hunt…their win. Only the narcissists will determine how life plays out.

But it can take years for a narcissist who feels like someone else won (by leaving) to stop the bullying and abuse.

They will torture the person who left them in a manner befitting only a narcissist.

Especially since the majority of the shepherds, aka, the world will never have the ability to see the wolf under the sheep’s clothing. The narcissist will remain a harmless and charming animal in their eyes. Only increasing the danger among the flock.

Because if you interfere with their world…with their hunt…with their win — you will fare far worse.
