The empath was doing some inner child work and the meditation she was listening too said to imagine yourself as a two-year-old child and image the narcissist around the same age.
Then imagine the inner child goes over to the little narcissist and hugs him and plays with him. And then after a while, the inner child was supposed to fill him with her love energy and say goodbye. So the empath decided to give it a try.
From a distant, the inner child could see the little narcissist in the sandbox hammering away on an unidentifiable object.
The inner child looked up at the adult version of herself for approval. She said go-ahead you do whatever feels right.
The two-year-old inner child felt love and compassion for the little narcissist.
With tears in the two-year-old inner child’s eyes, she approached the little narcissist.
Then she saw what the little narcissist was hammering on and she was appalled by his behavior.
She yelled, No! Then she snatched her heart out of the little narcissist’s hands.
She said, that is my heart and you don’t get to play with my heart.
Then she quickly ran as fast as she could back to the adult version of herself. As she ran she accidentally kicked sand into the little narcissist’s eyes. Her adult self gave her a hug and told her she was proud of her.
And the little narcissist did what narcissists do best. He had a conniption fit.
