Narcissus was a Greek hunter who was known for his beauty and his disdain for those who love him. He was so self-involved that the Greek goddess Nemesis, a deity responsible for vengeance against those succumbed to arrogance, caused him to fall in love with a reflection of himself. He stared at his own reflection until he died.
A Narcissist is a selfish, self-absorbed and arrogant individual who craves admiration and attention. They use their physical beauty and natural charm to manipulate others into fulfilling their desires. These desires are usually superficial and short term. A Narcissist cannot hold a relationship for very long, perhaps a few months, before they are bored and will seek attention elsewhere.
A Narcissist knows he or she is a jerk and just doesn’t care as long as they are admired. They don’t care about you and don’t really like you, after all, there is only room for one person in their heart, and that spot is already taken by their own outrageous self-love. So what do you say to a Narcissist who is trying to manipulate you into serving their needs?
She is water; powerful enough to drown you, soft enough to cleans you and deep enough to save you…
Verbal, emotional and psychological abusers have you so off balance it can take years to get out of the relationship.
…and no matter how well things may be going at the moment, they can quickly change, due to the trigger.
I still don’t know who sent it…
In many cases the narcissist often has an ex-partner (or several) who they will claim is mentally ill in some way and who may have become dependent on alcohol or drugs (therefore, in the narcissist’s opinion, it’s all their fault). This is commonly the result of being subject to narcissistic abuse over a long period of time. In extreme cases, this alien behavior can go as far as to develop into full blown psychological murder. Narcissists are experts at using very cleverly plotted, calculated, emotional, mental and verbal abuse, guilt and sympathy to manipulate and exploit the people around them. In covertly narcissistic relationships this is usually solely the narcissist’s partner (victim) and in a lot of cases the covertly narcissistic behaviour gradually becomes more and more overt over the years.
Narcissists naturally use hypnotic forms of communication to very cleverly disguise abuse within embedded verbal commands and they use subliminal persuasion tactics, undermining the perception of their victim(s). Seeing as they have been practicing this hypnotic art since they were a child they become experts in it and have what is commonly described as a super human capacity for manipulation. So much so, that narcissists can use other people as pawns and can use them to carry out their manipulative tactics and deceit on their behalf without the pawns even being aware of what’s really happening (abuse by proxy), it is as though the narcissist’s subconscious mind is their conscious mind.
