From time to time, I will have guest bloggers post topics on Narcissistic or Emotional Abuse. Below is one such guest blog post. Have you experienced word salad with a Narc? Comment below. And as always, I appreciate you sharing your stories with me.
Have you ever wondered why certain things in an abusive relationship happened when they do? Or wonder why there are so many ups and downs, like a rollercoaster ride?
Have you ever heard the quote "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned"? It originated from a 1697 play by William Congreve. Well, the same can be said about a Narcissist.....Hell hath no fury like a Narc you dare to disagree with or point out they're wrong.
If you've ever been on the receiving end of a Narc's tirades, you know how deep it can hurt you. Accusations, blame, rage - they are all just on the surface. It's really not you. If you listen closely, you will hear confessions!
If it's one thing about Narcs that you need to know, it is that they never give you a real apology. If they give you one at all. They will sometimes "apologize" but it is mostly to shut you up. I always felt so insulted whenever my NX would give me these fake apologies.
Gaslighting is one of the most insidious forms of emotional abuse there is. Why? Because it is the Narcissist abuser's desire to drive you crazy. But why is it so dangerous? The term "gaslight" came from the 1944 movie starring Charles Boyer and Ingrid Bergman, which was based on the 1938 stage play of the same name. Boyer's character would purposely dim the gas lights in the home and then pretend not to know about it when Bergman's character asked about it. The main purpose is to make the victims feel like they are losing their mind. So how would that apply to you? Read on.
A Narcissistic abuser will use whatever tactics they must to gain the upper hand. There are so many abuse tactics and techniques, but when you break down a Narc's abuse into its simplest form, it is all about power and control. The Narc needs to feel all powerful and better than you.
Mirroring was briefly mentioned in my previous post, Knowledge is Power. I mentioned how Narcissists will pass themselves off as the perfect mate. How does the Narc achieve this? Read on!
There's so many topics to choose from when beginning a blog on this subject. So why am I choosing this one? Because you, my readers, need to know that arming yourselves with knowledge is the number one way to protecting yourselves from the Narc's verbal and emotional (and sometimes, physical) assaults.
