In brief: Challenging

Since a narcissist feels that the world revolves around themselves, it can be tedious to be with such a person for prolonged periods.
Since it's a personality trait, it isn't likely something you will be able to change. If there are other aspects of the relationship that make it worth your while, carry-on. Otherwise, consider alternatives.

In brief: Narcissism

This is incredibly difficult, if not impossible, depending on symptom severity.
One can find oneself worn down by the narcissist's put-downs, slights, self-aggrandizement, entitlement and how the narcissist objectifies them.
