Hey Love Welcome Back
I’m continuing with the book for this month.
Continuing on with my last post, the author spoke about how how the victim usually goes into flight or fight mode when dealing with a narcissist. It is different for everyone. I remember not really being myself and the way I reacted to my narcissists surprised me. I never want to see that side again.
To those who are new, I suggest you read the first post that I have linked below.
The author goes through the stages (phases) that the victim goes through. And its so scary how close it is to the stages of death.
Phase 1: Awareness
Phase 2 : Awareness of Manipulation while it’s happening
Phase 3: Developing a plan response to manipulative behavior
- 1. the action of manipulating something in a skillful manner.” the format allows fast picture manipulation”
- 2. the action of manipulating someone in a clever or unscrupulous way.” there was no deliberate manipulation of visitors’ emotions”
Sometimes, you aren’t even aware you are being manipulated. I didn’t realize I was until my friends had an intervention that I desperately needed.
The author says a narcissist will try to keep their victim emotionally hostage. They will do whatever it takes to keep ahold of your emotions. It really sucks. They feel like they own you and will do whatever it takes to make you think the same way.
Here’s a secret as much as many narcissists say they don’t like drama, they do beloved.
If a person
wants to solve a conflict they will
My narcissist would alway find a way to make everything my fault or say “I don’t want to argue”
Anytime I wanted to have an adult conversation, he would but a stop to it.
Blossom into a New You!
We will continue on the next post!
