Signs of a Karmic Relationship with a Narcissist

In this post, we go over signs of a karmic relationship with a narcissist.

Karmic Relationship with a Narcissist

No one wants to be in a karmic relationship, but the truth is that almost everyone has been in one at some point in their lives.

Because the partners are not equal in this matter, this type of relationship is nothing more than a life lesson that must be learned the hard way.

One is always the one in charge and manipulating the situation, while the other goes above and beyond to make things work.

I know it can be difficult to tell if you’re in this type of relationship or if you’ve just met your soul mate, so here are some signs to look for.

Signs of a Karmic Relationship with a Narcissist

1. Your partner controls you

When your partner has complete control over all aspects of your life, this is one of the most common signs of a karmic relationship.

You could both be in trouble if he wants to know where you are and who you are with at all times.

Relationships are built on mutual trust and support, and if you’re not getting those things, it’s time to move on.

2. Your partner is smothering you

I know a lot of women who are willing to overlook this type of behavior, but it’s something you shouldn’t overlook if you want to have a happy relationship.

If you believe your partner is smothering you and telling you what you can and can’t do, you’re unlikely to get what you require from them.

Both partners should be able to spend their free time with their families and friends, but if someone is preventing you from doing so, it is not worth being a part of your life.

3. Your partner changes you even if you don’t want to.

Do you ever have the impression that your man is simply telling you what you should do? Instead of telling you he’s making a decision for your benefit, you catch him making one?

If you answered yes, you should be concerned because you are in a toxic relationship that can cause you more harm than you think.

You are a free-willed individual who makes all of your own decisions.

You are not a puppet that can be used however you want. You are a person who must fight for your rights in order to live the life you desire.

4. Your partner is acting badly towards you

Bad behavior from one partner towards the other is one of the signs of a karmic relationship.

You should consider leaving your man if you notice him acting in ways he isn’t supposed to.

You don’t deserve to be treated this way, especially since you love him and go out of your way to show him you care.

Never accept someone who isn’t a good match for you.

Take whatever bad luck you’ve had as a lesson, but never stay with someone who brings out the worst in you.

5. Your partner makes you dependent on him

The dominant partner in a karmic relationship will exert control over the other and make them reliant on them.

He’ll use every trick in the book to win this game, and he’ll feel no remorse.

They are unique individuals who are only familiar with this method of operation. So, if you see such signs, flee as quickly as you can.

6. Your partner makes you feel like you’re the crazy one.

If your partner always wins arguments, he’s probably good at convincing you to believe things you don’t want to believe.

If every fight makes you feel bad and like you’re losing your self-esteem, believe me when I say you have no reason to stay with him.

A person like this is simply someone who has been sent to you to teach you a lesson and assist you in your spiritual growth.

But he’s not someone you’d want to spend the rest of your life with.

7. Your partner convinces you that he is the one.

No one has to persuade you if something or someone is genuine. When you’re with him, you’ll feel it naturally, and you’ll feel inner peace.

But something is seriously wrong if the men you’re dating are constantly trying to persuade you that they’re the one and making your life a living hell.

And you must get rid of him as soon as possible, because it will be too late later.

8. Your partner drives you crazy

If you feel like your relationship isn’t as good and healthy as it was when you first started dating, you’re probably in a karmic relationship. It means it isn’t and never will be good for you.

It means you’re living and sleeping with someone who makes you feel bad about yourself and doesn’t love you enough.

He doesn’t like you at all because of all the nonsense he does to you. So it’s up to you whether you want to put up with it or get rid of it right away.

9. You feel like you’ve known your partner forever.

It’s a sure sign of a karmic relationship if you feel like you’ve known your partner for a long time.

You have the distinct impression that you’ve just met your soul mate, your twin flame, and that you were born to be together.

When he looks at you, you get the feeling that you’ve seen those eyes before and that he’s someone special in your life.

But it’s just your mind playing tricks on you, convincing you that it’s the right choice for you, which it isn’t.

10. You regularly think about ending the relationship

When you’re in this relationship, you feel like you’re going to end it after every fight – and let’s face it, you’ll fight all the time because you’re not on the same page.

You’ll both want things that the other person can’t give you, and you won’t be able to find inner peace as a result.

11. Your partner’s needs are more important than your own.

If your partner acts as if he is the most important person in the whole world and you have no value, you are in a so-called karmic relationship.

A real relationship is a mix of meeting the needs of both partners and working to make them equal, but if that’s something your guy doesn’t accept, then you need to move on.

He’s not the right one for you, and he never will be.

12. You easily get jealous.

Even if you are not a naturally jealous person, in a karmic relationship you will turn into someone you never thought you would be.

This will happen because your partner will do things that will ruin your self-esteem and make you feel insecure about your worth.

You will constantly feel like he is leaving you for someone better and that you are not meeting all of his needs.
