What Will A Narcissist Do or Think If They Just Can’t Break You?

What Will A Narcissist Do or Think If They Just Can’t Break You? what will a narcissist do or think if they just can’t break you?

Today, we’ll address the question: “What goes through a narcissist’s mind when they can’t break you?” When a narcissist is unable to break your will, their responses and thoughts can be quite diverse, influenced by the specific circumstances you find yourself in. In the following sections, we’ll explore a range of potential reactions and behaviors that may emerge from a narcissist when their attempts at manipulation prove unsuccessful.

Frustration and Angry

You see, narcissists find their sense of importance in having power and control over others. When they encounter someone who refuses to bend to their will, it can be incredibly frustrating and infuriating for them. This frustration stems from the fact that they perceive a loss of their authority and their inability to shape the situation as they see fit. In such situations, they may respond by becoming confrontational, using derogatory language to undermine the person who’s resisting them.

Intensified manipulation tactics

When you’re dealing with a narcissist, you might notice them becoming more intense in their manipulation tactics as they try to regain control. They could use strategies like gaslighting, guilt-tripping, or portraying themselves as victims. Their aim is to shake your self-confidence and weaken your ability to resist their influence.


They’ll use a range of techniques to see if they can break you or make you lower your boundaries. Their main goal is to devalue you, making you feel worthless, in order to get you to do what they want.

Seek Alternative Sources of Supply

When things get really tough or when they can’t control you as they’d like, they often resort to discarding you or moving on to find new people who can provide them with the attention and admiration they need. This is because narcissists constantly seek validation and control from others. When they feel they can’t get what they want from you, they may abruptly end the relationship or distance themselves from you. Their aim is to find fresh targets who they believe will fulfill their needs for attention and admiration, essentially starting the cycle of manipulation again. They will seek out individuals who are vulnerable to their manipulative tactics in order to satisfy their needs.


In a world filled with all kinds of people, it’s crucial to remember that your boundaries serve as your armor and shield against manipulation and control. When push comes to shove, and you find yourself backed into a corner by a manipulator, it becomes a true test of your ability to uphold your boundaries and prioritize your well-being. In these challenging moments, resist the temptation to be easily swayed by their deceitful games. Instead, steadfastly prioritize your safety, mental health, and emotional well-being.

While it might be challenging, maintaining your boundaries is your lifeline to maintaining a healthier, more empowered, and happier life. You deserve relationships built on respect, trust, and reciprocity, and your boundaries are the key to achieving just that. So, stand your ground and continue to prioritize your well-being, even when faced with the most challenging of circumstances. You’ve got this, and you’re worth it.
