Narcissistic relationships are formed when one or both partners struggle with a narcissistic personality.

Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) is defined by The Mayo Clinic as “a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance and a deep need for admiration.

Often, a condescending remark will help them to reestablish their superior image.

Condescending is a common dynamic in narcissistic relationships.

Often narcissistic people were also neglected, as their parents were so focused on themselves that they could not attune to their child or meet their child’s emotional needs.

The child was only useful to these parents when they were serving a purpose for them.
