The Responsibility of Familiy Members Who Know
If you are a member of a narcissist's immediate family, what are your responsibilities to other potential victims?
Some things to think about.
In some jobs, a narcissist can do an awful lot of damage. For example, as a teacher or a police officer, or President-for-Life.
In nearly any job, a narcissist will trash the character and job performance of their betters. That lifelong trail of destruction in a narcissist's wake is populated mostly with lives he or she ruined outside their immediate family. They get people fired. And even blackballed. They create such awful rumors that the victim ends up a divorced pariah, whom no one wants anything to do with.
And they climb.
Is it your responsibility to make it your business to know what they're doing at work?
And if they do climb to top by tearing others down, can you justly reap the rewards of their ill-got gain?
In fact, this is the actual context of the remark Jesus of Nazareth made when he said that lewd conduct was a special case, calling for separation/divorce despite Jewish law.
Many brothers, sisters, and spouses of narcissists think the narcissist won't do it to them - that he or she won't destroy THEIR whole life and career. When the narcissist then does, they wish they hadn't looked the other way while he did it to others.
