One of the most challenging aspects of an unhealthy relationship is to let go of the obsession to prove your self worth to those who do not seem to appreciate you.  This obsession is what the cluster B personality (narcissist) is counting on in order to obtain fuel.  The more a person attempts to please the narcissist, the more fuel the cluster B personality can gain in the relationship.  Cluster B personalities usually have many unrealistic expectations of those around him or her.  These unrealistic expectations can cause anxiety, frustration and overall emotional stress as one obsesses over how to please the narcissist. Many have lost a strong sense of self as a result.  The cluster B personality is notorious for verbal abuse.  Therefore, due to repeated personal verbal attacks of the characteristics of others; individuals can find it very difficult to maintain a strong self image while engaging in unhealthy relationships.  It is often found that after one experiences such abuse, some form of constructive support is necessary in order to reclaim their strong self image and identity.
