Q: My best friend is dating a narcissist and I told her I thought he was one and to read this site. She seemed to see the light, but I don’t think she can truly except it. Their fights seem to be getting worse and I fear he will become physically violent with her, what can I do other than stand back and watch him destroy her?
A: You are indeed a good friend for pointing out the information and having her read it. As the old adage goes, “you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink “. You cannot change her mind- only she can do that. You can, however, support her when she is going through the fights with him and let her know that you fear for her safety. Make sure she has a safety plan if things do become violent. It is hard in these situations to sit back and just support her, but sometimes that is all you can do. If you try to force the issue she is most likely going to start avoiding you and then you won’t be there to support her.
