Narcissistic abuse is one of the most pervasive forms of abuse. There really isn’t much worse and this condition is increasingly spreading throughout our society.
The increasing use of illegal drugs, abuse and the general social breakdown occurring world wide is a major cause.
A person with Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) will emotionally damage their families. This damage can last more than a life time, it will also affect the next 3 or 4 generations.
Many children of NPD elect to not perpetuate the craziness another generation by not having children. NPD can also be passed down through the generations. Great grandma had NPD and one of the great grand children also is afflicted with NPD.
NPDs are very good actors and actresses. They can feign love or whatever they need to get what they want. They tend to attract empaths or people that really want to help them. These make wonderful victims, especially the type that can keep turning the cheek.
Nobody believes you when you talk about the narcissistic abuse. The endless bragging, how everybody loves him/her or how great they are and being told you are lucky to have them because nobody else would have you.
A narcissist will leave you totally devastated with absolutely no self esteem or self worth and then laugh about it.
Narcissists have no conscience nor remorse, they are sociopaths. They take sadistic pleasure in tormenting others, yet they can act innocently as if they don't know what they are doing.
Do not underestimate their intelligence, they will lie and cheat. They make a living at getting attention and if the attention is pleasant or not, it makes no difference to them. They need the attention in order to feel alive.
You will NEVER get a sincere apology or closure of any sort. They will simply move on to the next victim while your world is left in ruins and smoldering ashes.
