Grifter, a nice word for a sneaky, snakey, deceitful, swindler.
Wanna change the world? Heal yourself and create healthy relationships. Yep. It’s that simple. 🤍
Narcissists take extreme, life threatening situations others struggle with and make a mockery of them by feigning being the victim. They will make empty suicide threats, make false claims of being the victim of domestic violence, or fake a serious, life threatening illness all for the sake of attention, manipulation, and control. It’s a slap in the face to those who struggle with the real problems of depression, abuse, or serious illness.
Narcissists are experts at showing one face to the world and a completely different one to their victims. This is often why others have such a difficult time believing the narcissist is as diabolical as they are. Don’t let a soft “quiet” exterior fool you. Coverts are wonderful at looking shy, quiet, or sweet to those they wish to manipulate.
I’ve spent several days deciding how to best caption this to make my point. And to put it simply, when one lies to him or herself consistently one also begins to believe his or her own lies. The lies are grandiose in nature due to the pathology of narcissism which requires the self aggrandizing and “specialness”. Additionally, the lie is born out of insecurity within the pathogen and is disguised as confidence. Just another part of the lie. However, unlike the victim of another who gaslights them, the narcissist is simultaneously the perpetrator and the victim of their own self delusion and lies.
Always moving the goal post mean never knowing where to put forth your efforts and understanding no matter what you’ll never score.
