J Vandeweghe's Emotional and Narcissistic Abuse: The Complete Survival Guide to Understanding Narcissism, Escaping the Narcissist in a Toxic Relationship Forever, and Your Road to Recovery
Do you feel like you're no longer the person you used to be? Do you feel like all your beautiful traits have been stripped away? Are you struggling to distinguish what is real and what is not...? Chances are you've been strategically trauma bonded to a Narcissist for quite some time, living in a false reality.The casual tossing-around of the word "narcissist" has led many people to falsely believe that a narcissist is simply someone who has an inflated sense of confidence and perhaps a slightly inflated ego, too. Unfortunately, the dictionary reinforces this belief with its description of a narcissist, stating that they are "a person who has an excessive Interest
in or admiration of themselves." This is more likely to be the definition of someone who is arrogant and not someone who is narcissistic. The reality of a narcissist is much darker than that. Narcissists do tend to think incredibly highly of themselves, but the reality of who they are and what they do is extremely intricate and well-played. Narcissism is an intricate, well-constructed series of traits wrapped up in one mental illness that is extremely damaging to all who cross the paths of a narcissist, especially their lovers. Some people are known to possess narcissistic-like qualities, but this is entirely different from what a true narcissist is. A true narcissist is a master at lying, phenomenal at deception, and incredibly talented at curating codependent victims. They are powerful. Because a narcissist is generally slow and consistent in their approach, they are masters at tearing down other people to the point that the other person develops an addiction to the narcissist. The narcissist is not just in love with getting attention; they are completely addicted to it. That is the basis for their entire mental illness. It is what drives them and what results in them masterfully playing out all of their puppeteering behaviors.
