The Narcissist. We all know one.

What if you weren't wrong, you weren't reading into things, or taking things the wrong way? Maybe you see things accurately and hlways have. You're not crazy or too sensitive. The things you saw happen really did. If this sounds familiar to you, you might be dealing with a narcissist or at least abusive behavior. Both have adverse effects that can negatively impact your life in many ways.


It's unfortunate that someone can only feel balance and ok with themselves when they feel superior and power over another.


Power. The love of power and their displays of power, and the objects that give them power. That would be the human that gives them power.


I hate to use the victim sometimes because it takes a persons power away. The reality is you do have power. However, I don't want to minimize the hell you could be living in, or the depth of wounds and trauma you have as a result of the relationship. Don't give it up. We make excuses for their behavior, or maybe we are constantly talked into staying with them because our friends talk us into it. After all, they're being manipulated too. Sometimes, you just don't see the toxicity and abuse, maybe you don't even realize how much they weigh you down until your depressed and forced to smile for the show.


"Then you realize just how toxic relationships with these individuals can be."
