Three Little Empaths

3 LITTLEEMPATHS

Once upon a time, there were three little empaths who lived with a Wise Old Empath. The Wise Old Empath felt that more good needed to be done in the world, so she sent the three little empaths out in to the world and besides she wanted to be able to binge watch boxsets of Baking With Goodness without interruption. As she waved good bye to the three little empaths she called out,

“Go into the world my little empaths and spread your goodness all around, but please watch out for the narcissists. They are not easy to spot and make sure you all build a good home on the foundation of no contact. There is only one architect you should look for, he is called Hurt God.”

“We will!” chorused the three little empaths as they headed off into the world. The three little empaths soon set about commencing their good works and it was not long before pods of gay blind whales were being saved, a GoFundMe account was up and running for Oppressed Men with Beards and of Diminished Stature and  Crochet ‘Cos U Care Clubs sprang up across the land.

Yet, there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth as each of the three little empaths fell foul to the lure of The Narcissist. After Glorious Golden Periods and Devilish Devaluations, the three little empaths each made an escape bid.

The first little empath was scurrying along the yellow brick road seeking to escape her narcissist as she remembered the words of the Wise Old Empath.

“I need to build a house founded on no contact. W.O.E told me to find Hurt God but that sounds like such hard work and I was hoping to bake some Gullible Tarts this afternoon, oh what am I to do?”

Just then a woman rounded the yellow brick road.

“Hello first little empath, did I hear you need to build a House of No Contact?” she asked.

“Yes, yes I do, who are you?” asked the first little empath.

“I am Hysterical Tirade, I know about no contact,” replied the woman.

“You do?” asked the first little empath with enthusiasm, “I was told to use the architect Hurt God, but that sounds like hard work finding him.”

“Oh, it is and he is not a pleasant man, you do not want to use his work. My work is really just a personal rant about the narcissist that ensnared me, but don’t let that distract you from how brilliant my advice is. Here take this book.”

“Oh, thank you so much, now I can build my House of No Contact and do some baking.” And the first little empath used the book provided by Hysterical Tirade to build a House of No Contact on the spot where she was stood.

Not much later, as the first little empath was rolling the pastry for the Gullible Tarts she heard a familiar voice.

“Little emp, little emp, let me come in!”

It was an ogre of a Lesser Narcissist!

“Shove it douchebag!” shouted the first little empath defiantly.

“Then I will shout and I will scream and I will make a huge din so I can ensure I hoover you straight back in!” cried the Lesser Narcissist.

The first little empath smiled for she was in a House of No Contact but then she paused as she felt a cold hand of dread about her throat.

“Er, how did you find me?” she asked.

“Ha ha,” laughed the Lesser Narcissist, “look next door.”

The first little empath looked out of the window and saw across the garden was the man she knew as Lou Tenant waving back at her with a sardonic grin.

“Damn!” cursed the first little empath, “Hysterical Tirade’s Guide to the House of No Contact said nothing about building next to the House of Lou Tenant.”

“What a shame,” smiled the Lesser Narcissist as he strolled up behind the first little empath, slung her over his shoulder and set off back to Narc Town, leaving the First House of No Contact to crumble behind them.

 

The second little empath was hurrying along the road paved with gold seeking to escape her narcissist as she remembered the words of the Wise Old Empath.

“I need to build a house founded on no contact. W.O.E told me to find Hurt God but that sounds like such hard work and I was hoping to knit some Hats of Eternal Hope this afternoon, oh what am I to do?”

Just then a man rounded a corner of the road paved with gold.

“Hello second little empath, did I hear you need to build a House of No Contact?” he asked as he adjusted his vest and gave a smile.

“Yes, yes I do, who are you?” asked the second little empath.

“I am Smooth Amateur, I know about no contact,” replied the man.

“You do?” asked the second little empath with enthusiasm, “I was told to use the architect Hurt God, but that sounds like hard work finding him.”

“Oh, it is and he is a psychopath you know so he is a pathological liar, you do not want to use his work. My work is really just a collection of some fairly good ideas to essentially make me look like a hero whilst not really conveying the reality, but don’t let that distract you from how brilliant my advice is. Here take this book.”

“Oh, thank you so much, now I can build my House of No Contact and do some knitting.” And the second little empath used the book provided by Smooth Amateur to build a House of No Contact on the spot where she was stood.

Not much later, as the second little empath was knitting busily in her parlour she heard a familiar voice.

“Little emp, little emp, let me come in!”

It was a cowardly Mid-Range Narcissist!

“Beat it loser!” shouted the second little empath defiantly.

“Then I will plead and I will cajole and I will smear you with sin, so I can ensure I hoover you straight back in!” cried the Mid-Range Narcissist.

The second little empath smiled for she was in a House of No Contact but then she paused as she felt a cold hand of dread about her throat.

“Wait how did you know I would be here?” she asked

“You’ve been plastering yourself all over BaseFuck, Twatter, NarcMagnet and Plenty of Narcs, you gave plenty of detail about what you are doing and where and you did not block me,” smiled the Mid Range Narcissist with an oily grin.

“Damn!” cursed the second little empath, “Smooth Amateur’s Guide to the House of No Contact said nothing about staying off social media and blocking you.”

“What a shame,” smiled the Mid-Range Narcissist, “but it’s not all bad, after all, you should be looking after me now,” as he strolled up behind the second little empath, took her by the hand and set off back to Narc Town, leaving the Second House of No Contact to crumble behind them.

 

The third little empath was scurrying along the road to hell paved with good intentions seeking to escape her narcissist as she remembered the words of the Wise Old Empath.

“I need to build a house founded on no contact. W.O.E told me to find Hurt God and by the lack of hairs on my smooth chinny chinny chin chin I will find this mysterious Hurt God” she declared with resolve.

So the third little empath walked the road to hell paved with good intentions and was repeatedly offered books, videos and seminars on how to build the Ultimate House of No Contact by many people. She ignored various providers, such as Miss Unsupported Bonkers Theory, Unduly Esoteric Explanation Man, Hopelessly Rambling Victim, Mr Nice But Narc, Miss Tie Twenty Crystals Around Your Forehead and other well-meaning but ultimately ineffective purveyors of advice.

The third little empath grew weary and as the sun began to set, she feared that she would not be able to build a House of No Contact on Hurt God’s foundation before her narcissist caught up with her.

Just then the third empath turned a corner of the road and there was a tall, slim man who immediately exuded an air of malevolent menace. She could not see his features against the brightness of the sinking sun but the darkness which flowed from him made her feel wary and unsettled.

“Hello third little empath, did I hear you need to build a House of No Contact?” he asked in a voice which was authoritative and beguiling.

“Yes, yes I do, but I should not talk to strangers and certainly not ones as magnetic as you,” said the third little empath.

“Very sensible,” laughed the mysterious stranger and the third little empath was both aroused and repulsed, “but you need not worry, you are but a tertiary source and I have more proximate empaths to toy with. Here, take this, it will serve you excellent well,” and with that the stranger pressed a book into the shaking hands of the third little empath before he strode away whistling “A Hunting We Will Go” to himself.

The third little empath looked at the book and saw the title “Hurt God’s Ultimate House of No Contact” and she promptly fainted.

Some time later the third little empath came to and recalled her brief encounter with Hurt God. She saw the book still nearby and snatched it up and immediately set about digesting its content.

Even more time later, the third little empath was settling down to watch an episode of ‘Narcland’s Got Empaths’ when there was chime from her mobile phone. She saw a notification from her NarcCam and opened up the application. She watched transfixed as she saw a shadowy figure moving towards a house, caught on a concealed NarcCam.

“Goodness, it is the Greater Narcissist!” declared the third little empath. She sat in her comfortable armchair and watched remotely as the figure strolled with complete confidence up to a well-appointed house.

“He has come to hoover me!” announced the third little empath. The camera had sound and vision and she could hear the Greater Narcissist saying smoothly,

“Little emp, little emp, let me come in.”

“No way buster,” said the third little empath.

The Greater strode up the steps on to the porch in full view of the camera and turned and looked straight into the lens. He gave a radiant smile and said,

“Oh don’t be like that, I’ve come to repair the rift, I’ll hoover you with an expensive gift,” and then he extended a manicured forefinger and pressed the door bell.

Suddenly a trapdoor opened and the Greater dropped out of sight.

“Let’s see how a period of fuel free isolation suits you Mr Narcissist,” said the third little empath. She set down her ‘phone and picked up the television remote control. The third little empath patted the book that rested on the arm of her chair.

“Great work Hurts God, thanks to you I set up a robust House of No Contact and created a diversionary house with a false trail which the narcissist went to instead and now he is reflecting on what on earth has just happened from within a sealed drum of isolation.”

Just then a text arrived on the third little empath’s phone and she gave a short gasp.

“HG approves,” read the text.

    1. Hello SX, I started writing as a child. My first published book was seduction, although I had others completed before that.

      7+
      1. Hello HG! Thank you for your answer. I have some questions ( as usual):
        1.How old were you when you start writing?
        2.Have you kept some of your writings from your childhood? It would be very interesting to read them!
        3. What did you write about as a child?
        4. How has your writing developed over time( different ages): different topics,different styles?
        5.What role does your writing play for you?
        6. Which needs does your writing fulfil for you?
        7. Which other books not related to Narcissism have you written? What are these books about? Have you published them?

      2. You are welcome.

        1. I starting writing stories as soon as I could construct sentences.
        2. Yes.
        3. Various subjects but there was an emphasis on the terrible.
        4. It depends on what I am writing about.
        5. It allows me to articulate and educate.
        6. See 5.
        7. Various. No I have not. Some are police procedurals, some erotica, some thriller.

      3. And one last question:
        8. Have you considered writing an autobiography ( as part of your legacy?) That would be most interesting….

        0
      4. Is that part of your Grand Design towards MatriNarc or separate just for yourself to get out your memoir?

      5. Good for you HG! I hope you have much success with both! I already know that you will!! 🍺To you my great teacher!!

        Any chance of reading your writings as a child? “Unlikely”
        And your unpublished books?”Possibly”
        Emphasis on the terrible? Even as a child? “Yes”

    Speaking of Miss Unsupported Bonkers Theory, does this make any sense to you? “Narcissism is, in a metaphorical sense, one half of what sociopathy is. Even clinical narcissists are able to feel most emotions as strongly as anyone else does, from guilt and sadness to desperate love and passion. The narcissist is alienating his relationships on account of his lack of empathy with others, and is feeling confused, abandoned, and lonely. He misses the people he loves and is ill-equipped to get them back.”

    This makes no sense to me from my personal experience but you are the resident narcissist here and I figured I would run it by you.

      I don’t care if you redact my comment but the quote sounds like a load of bull shit and I would really like to know what you think so I can contact the writer with a correction. I have already, politely, corrected Simon Barron-Cohen regarding narcissism and the Science of Evil.

      1. Hello K,

        My observations are in brackets.

        “Narcissism is, in a metaphorical sense, one half of what sociopathy is. (Not entirely sure what is meant by this, but if it means that a sociopath is a narcissist, then I agree).

        Even clinical narcissists are able to feel most emotions as strongly as anyone else does, (only certain emotions and some will be felt stronger than others)
        from guilt and sadness to desperate love and passion. (incorrect)

        The narcissist is alienating his relationships on account of his lack of empathy with others, (part of the reason) and is feeling confused, abandoned, and lonely.(I do not feel any of those things although some of our kind might)
        He misses the people he loves and is ill-equipped to get them back.” (not at all – we may well miss the fuel and some of our kind may be ill-equipped to recover that fuel, but other sources will present themselves)

      1. Lessers?
        I know greaters can, though I would suspect given the lack of impulse control and tendency for violence in lessers that they’d be possible. In my humble….what do you think HG?

        Are the midrangers the trickiest to spot if you have not been Tudorized?

        0
      2. Lessers are the easiest to spot. Brag a lot, have a high opinion of themselves, their abilities and achievements, have a ‘if you don’t like it, fuck you’ approach and always believe they are right because, well they are right, often they will not even try to construct any semblance of an argument but just tell someone to ‘fuck off’ and carry on as normal. They can be quite comical in some respect as they stray into caricature territory at times, their total lack of awareness is both staggering and entertaining at times (save when they are behaving in a threatening manner/hitting and beating etc).

        Greaters are difficult to spot because of the ability to mimic and fit in, however their sheer charisma and magnetism, the confidence, the power flowing from us etc, does mean that once you understand these are indicative factors of the greater, you spot us more readily.

        Mid-Rangers are the trickiest to spot, yes, this is because they are less boastful, they often appear as kind and caring, they try to maintain the façade of being a ‘good’ person, they are adept at currying favour and gently smearing other people, so sometimes they just appear as ‘rather sensitive’ or ‘a little obsessive about what people think’.

        7+
      3. Thank you! Great guide! The thing that helps me identify a mid quickly is their story on introduction. Normally they’ve been wronged. Their ex hurt them, took all their money, is bleeding them dry through alimony. Their kids don’t love them. They carry themselves in a defeated manner (pathetic, IMO) saying they did everything and only wanted love in return. And all this information is offered up before you even order appetizers. If violins and Kleenex pop out on a first date, then I know I’ve hit Mid range jackpot.

      4. This is so true , mine did it within an hour of meeting him , when I now think back on it. The sob story of all he ever wanted was to settle down and all his exes were psychos . They really are more or less Cookie Cutter.

      5. HG, so only Greater or Elites can be Psycopaths? Is there one of your articles that expands on the Narcs as psychopaths? Thank you!

        If I decided to start dating I shall keep a box of tissues just in case his story is impressive, maybe cry a few tears, give some sympathy as I back away slowly. The run…..

        Oh I would and leave. I have done that before, had a message telling me the next day they didn’t think things would work out. I was just like, you don’t say.
        Next time they can pay, the last time I paid for my meal then left.

  10. Haha! I just adore these Narcy tales!! I was just blocking the Narcs on “Plenty of Narcs’ last night. I recognize some of them so easily now Hurt God 🙂

  11. A funny spin on an unfunny topic. Douchebag made me laugh loud enough that the neighbor dog barked. Congrats. I identify with Hysterical Tirade and am guilty of ranting. Unlike HT, I would refer the emp to HG. My advice isn’t brilliant bc I’m not a narcissist.

    I don’t block. It gives him power, plus it isn’t my thing to block people. My issue.

    It is too bad that in non blog life you and Wise Old Empath couldn’t get along. Like MLA, I wondered if that was a hat tip to Indy due to the baking interests. She is wise; however, she isn’t old.

    You are a moderrn day Grimm.

    You made me laugh out loud three times yesterday. 🙂

    I know you will not post it to prevent further smearing and bullying.

  15. HG, you are the fucking man!!!! This story is one of my favorites of your work. I am definitely sharing this. My favorite parts are (since I dealt with a Mid-Range Narc and experienced these types of “therapists” and life coaches:

    …“You’ve been plastering yourself all over BaseFuck, Twatter, NarcMagnet and Plenty of Narcs, you gave plenty of detail about what you are doing and where and you did not block me,” smiled the Mid Range Narcissist with an oily grin…”

    Then you hit us with:

    “…the third little empath was both aroused and repulsed, “but you need not worry, you are but a tertiary source and I have more proximate empaths to toy with. Here, take this, it will serve you excellent well,” and with that the stranger pressed a book into the shaking hands of the third little empath before he strode away whistling “A Hunting We Will Go” to himself.”

    OMG, HG, your writing!!!, lol. And to drive it home:

    “…Suddenly a trapdoor opened and the Greater dropped out of sight….“Let’s see how a period of fuel free isolation suits you Mr Narcissist,”…“Great work Hurts God, thanks to you I set up a robust House of No Contact and created a diversionary house with a false trail which the narcissist went to…”

    “a text arrived on the third little empath’s phone and she gave a short gasp…“HG approves,” read the text.”

    I had to reread and quote you on this one. Made me feel like I was watching The Beast in my fav Syfy show The Magicians.

    HG, you are the muthafuckin’ man, I love this!!! P.S. thanks for helping me heal, and for helping me to identify what I needed to fix about myself that attracted this predator. I am doing a lot of self work, and learning to love the face in the mirror and not cringe when people call me pretty or beautiful. My narc killed something in me that makes me hate compliments about myself and that is a first time ever for that, but I am working on finding myself again. It’s been a year now, but I know I’m better because of you and the support I find here, on YouTube, and in your books. Again, THANK YOU! I sing your praises to anyone who will listen.

    1. Thank you NOA, I am most pleased you enjoyed this piece of my writing. I certainly relished writing it also and there is a lot more of this type of work (as well as the informative/preventative/revealing works) to come. I also appreciate you sharing the work and spreading the word.

  17. Soooo talented!! I absolutely love reading stories that you write. You have a very good ability to draw a person into the story as if they were there or part of it.

    This line was my favorite… I cracked up! haha

      HG has given you the knowledge now you need to accept what is true, your narcissist is knocking the question is are you going to leave the door cracked open with what ifs or seal it shut with I now know? I am under the understanding you are to met up with him soon. I do understand the need or want to see something you didn’t, it is the what if’s that can keep one hooked.

        We all walk a path of discovery and this is yours, we also each use the knowledge given on that path to make the choices we see best for us.

  21. LOL! Brilliant. Thank you for making me laugh several times! 😂Especially since I just had a mini melt down over The Devastation of the Illusion. Knife. Heart. And all that. N2 I would not piss on if he were on fire. But N1… he will require a consult. Or an exorcism.

    Now I want to see if I can figure out who some of your “characters” are. I’m still struggling but, I have to say, finding your site has been so much more helpful than any others I had come across. And you are definitely more entertaining at times! Some comments suggested you have other stories such as this? I must not have come across them yet. Is there an index of blog post titles somewhere?

    1. Thank you IJ. This is the best site bar none. There are similar tales to this one and I am currently working on a book of additional tales. You can look through the archives for other titles.

      Use the search function to enjoy these also:

      The princess and the hurt
      Jack and the pedestal
      Goldinarc and the 3 empaths
      Rumplenarcskin
      The dwarves and the shoemaker

      Thats off the top of my head so best to check the archives, but that will get you started.
      Enjoy!

      I highly recommend doing the consultation to help with the exorcism. You will not be disappointed.

      1. Thank you NA! I will look these up! I’m planning on it (Consult). I just wanted to get a better grasp of all of this first, as the realization of what I was dealing with kind of knocked me on my ass. I’m still a little numb and not wanting to believe it. Now that I have found answers to some of my basic Narc 101 questions, I can make my consult more meaningful. I appreciate the input and archive titles!

        HG your “hopped on her unicorn of hope and love” line in Geyser Empath seriously had me laughing too. I definitely know that type of empath. I definitely am not that one. Maybe I used to be long, long ago. Is there a “Jaded Empath”???

        0
      2. NA so true!! It was the consults that finally gave me the freedom that I was looking for! It was a little frightening at first however HG was so professional and kind it didn’t take me long to feel comfortable and use the knowledge he was giving me.

  22. Best story ever! I took your advice, from every vehicle — books, blog, and audio — and applied it to my life.

    Today I’m the 3rd lil empath! Tthanks to you, I believe I will find true love and be able to distinguish it from narc “love” for the first time in my life!

    Thanks to you, I don’t lead with my empathic side. I’m careful and watchful, sussing out Narcissistic tendencies in people.

    Forever grateful, Hurt God. 😍

    Humbly, No. 3.

  23. This was wonderful, HG, I loved it!
    Lately you seem to be particularly inspired; I hope that life is treating you well and continues to do so if these are the results!
