The Hidden Betrayal

Why being friends with the Narcissist is never a healthy choice Let’s face it, spending quality time with a friend can truly save the day.  A good meal, valued conversation about the intimate details of a never-ending saga, or even the discussion of a life experience in which you can authentically speak your truth.   There’s something about being able to openly share your most precious thoughts with a friend who will value your thoughts, cherish your life’s experiences and honor your relationship.    A Narcissist is not friendship material Once you become completely fed up with the narcissist and his shenanigans and you decide to leave the relationship, he will try to convince you to be friends.  What’s important to know is that the narcissist could care less about titles.  They don’t care if you are their girlfriend, wife, associate, or friend as long as they have access to destroy various areas of your life.  The let’s just be friends “scam” is a last-ditch effort to remain in your life so they can further …

The narcissist has absolutely no problem bringing the joy of Christmas to a halt and redirecting all attention onto themselves.  That’s what the Grinch-like behavior is all about, stealing your joy and gaining your attention.  The narcissist hates to see anyone truly happy because it reminds them of their misery which is unbearable.  So in order to get relief from their own miserable selves, the narcissist will project their misery …
