A narcissist will suck you dry, and when you finally realize what’s been going on and stand up to the narcissist in your life, they will pull out every emotion you ever shared with them, twist and spin it and fling it back at you with deadly accuracy. When they see their mirror has gained strength, thus providing the mirror the means of seeing the narcissist for what it truly is, they will move in for the emotional kill.
I hate to say this but they even exist in Second Life. Someone like me who has been through this before should know the signs.
Of course, they are so good that you get fooled and manipulated by them and when you try to make a run for it, they attack.
My first defense I learned was to remember that they will NEVER change. It is that simple they do NOT change. If you know a narcissist, and you have sublimated yourself to that individual’s monstrously sick manipulation, you are martyring yourself.
If you don’t stop the madness now, you may find yourself dealing with a massive case of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Trust me on that one, too. PTSD can result from recurring, consistent emotional abuse. Couple that with the physical abuse that some experience when with a narcissist and you’ll wind up with a full-blown case of PTSD.
You will not break me!!!
I will hope and pray for those who are still under your spell. May they find an escape fast and soon.
