It’s Not You
Narcissists can blame everyone else for problems. They genuinely believe that they can never do anything wrong and turn away any facts, even if you can prove them. It’s not in their brain waves to connect the mistakes they made to themselves.
Even if you had a part in the mistake, it’s not your fault. It was a team effort, and your boss should take some responsibility, but they won’t. Instead, they will blame everyone who is in front of them or whom they worked with. They will come up with dozens of reasons why everyone else did a poor job, and they did the best they could’ve done under the circumstances. This action can mentally and emotionally break you down, especially when you’re faced with this often, so it’s crucial that you remember it’s not you. You’re not to blame for anything but your mistakes. At the same time, you need to learn from your mistakes and move on, even when your boss won’t do this.
