Those who have been hurt by a narcissist that appears to “get away with it” can really struggle with bitterness and a deep desire for “justice” to be done. This often results in a continued obsession with the narcissist and what he/she has done – and a corresponding inability to “move on”.
One aspect of coming to a point of peace in what happened to you at the hands of the narcissist, is understanding clearly that in the end narcissists “don’t get away with it”. As narcissists are pros at shifting blame, covering up, lying their way out of things, making you think it was your fault, etc. they may appear to get away with it. Especially as they just flippantly move on to their next target. But it says,
Romans 12:19 – Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord...
Deuteronomy 32:35 – “Vengeance is Mine, and retribution, In due time their foot will slip;”
16 When I pondered to understand this,
It was troublesome in my sight
17 Until I came into the sanctuary of God;
Then I perceived their end.
18 Surely You set them in slippery places;
You cast them down to destruction.
19 How they are destroyed in a moment!
They are utterly swept away by sudden terrors!
20 Like a dream when one awakes,
O Lord, when aroused, You will despise their form.
