It is quite twisted but for him or her to turn you into a loyal subject, a narcissist will try to change you according to their ability to exploit you.
They never show you their true colors right in the beginning, they or they studied you so that they can mirror your desires and fears. They learn your behaviors — understand your flaws so that he or they can manipulate you without realizing it.
When you start dissecting a narcissist facade personality, you feel disappointed as if you have been scammed.
You also feel robbed of your identity and humanity.
A narcissist is always pressing your buttons so that you react to him or her. Therefore, they have triggers or words they use to push your buttons.
He or she is incapable of feeling healthy emotions like a normal person and so they want you to always feel out of sorts so that you are not happier than him or her.
If they are constantly unhappy, it will be their goal to make your life hell as well — even though you are naturally a happy person, being around a narcissist is deeply depressing.
If a narcissist successfully puts a dent into your psyche, the effect lingers on whether you are together or not.
You are always in your mind trying to figure out why a narcissist’s truths are inconsistent. You are always trying to connect the dots to understand his or her behaviors. You feel like you are going crazy.
Once you escape a narcissist’s grip, you start to realize that you were in an emotional, psychological, and mental prison.
The beauty of being a narcissist’s prisoner is that you also have the keys to your freedom but he or she convinces you that there is no escaping through how they treat you and devalue you.
By the time you realize that you can escape, he or she has robbed you of your sanity, self-esteem, and inner joy.
This simple book is for you the victim of narcissism who needs to break free from your cage.
