Narcissists have fragile egos that destroy others.
Take for example Elon Musk.
His first ex-wife Justine wrote about her fairytale love affair with Elon back in 2010. http://www.marieclaire.com/sex-love/advice/a5380/millionaire-starter-wife/
Their story was a typical fairytale. She fell for his ability to pay for lots of books, then married him, and soon had lots of children.
But they also had a tragedy. Their son passed away from SIDS at 10 weeks old.
It was during this time that Justine said Elon became cold and unloving.
Maybe Justine thought it was his fragile ego dealing with the death of their son? But, in reality it was his narcissism.
Narcissist’s don’t have empathy. They surround themselves with trophy wives and think they are more special than anyone else in the world. The rules only apply to them.
Narcissist’s spend a large amount of attention in the beginning of a relationship but soon show their true narcissist qualities and disappear. When things got mundane or as Justine said when “she wasn’t blonde enough for him” ..the narcissist finds another partner.
They aren’t fragile at all.
Sadly, Justine never had a chance.
Because surviving a narcissistic relationship is impossible. Especially with Elon Musk.
The fairytale eventually ended.
