Pathological narcissists: The #1 weird reason why you keep getting involved with them - The mysterious forces of chemistry and attraction draw narcissists and codependents together. Angie Atkinson talks narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) and its effect on long-term relationships - plus, she digs deep into the details of codependency recovery. The attachment style you developed very early in life is responsible for a lot of your current behaviors. Your particular attachment style leads to codependency, which attracts narcissists and leads you to compulsive caregiving and being a "fixer" who finds value in people-pleasing and taking care of the needs of others as you ignore your own. No matter how much they care, no matter how much they need you and depend on you, these relationships are not healthy or happy on any level - the other person is simply selfish and reckless. This mysterious development is exactly why your subconscious brain is wired to seek out validation, which makes you susceptible to becoming narcissistic supply. narcissists are drawn to you just as much as you're drawn to them - and neither of you can really do anything about it! -Your attachment style leads to codependency -The need to please others stems from a lack of security within yourself -Codependent people are drawn to narcissists just as vice versa Discover.
