An empath feels empathy on a much larger scale. This image appealed to me on the topic of equality because empathy is fundamental in relation to recognizing people from all walks of life as being entitled to equal rights.
Narcs smell empathetic people like a shark smells BLOOD. They know time and again what goodies they get when they push the buttons of an empathetic person. Tons of supply. Intoxicating supply. They've never felt so "adored". Narcs view your empathy as an entitled freebie. They know it's your undoing. That you'll easily take on the blame and shame of their unlovable core. They see it as a golden opportunity to exploit you. - After Narcissistic Abuse - There is Light, Life & Love
Manipulative people latch on to empathetic targets and exploit their innate qualities. They find people who are easy-going, gentle and kind - who avoid conflict and seek to make others happy. The Problem: They reciprocate none of these things.
