Narcissist & Psychopath Awareness Campaign
There is a silent epidemic happening right under our noses: the epidemic of narcissistic abuse. People are experiencing it in their homes and in the workplace. They may not understand what is happening. They may feel they are going crazy. Even if they could prove the abuse they are suffering, they fear they will not be believed, and their lives are being ruined. By learning to recognize narcissistic abuse, we can stop it from happening to ourselves, our loved ones and our co-workers.
Narcissists look like everyone else. They may be good looking and may seem charming, glib and friendly. They are not. Beneath their false exterior, a monster is waiting. Narcissists are childish, manipulative and cruel. They believe they are entitled to whatever they want, whether they have earned it or not - and they will do whatever it takes to get it. If they don't get it, they will react with rage or cold, silent hatred. They will spread lies about you to your family, friends, coworkers, even your children. They will tell people you are crazy, that you are abusive, that you are manipulative, that you are a liar, that you are sexually promiscuous, anything to destroy your reputation. They will try to get you fired, arrested, ostracized and disowned. The purpose of these narcissistic lies is literally to destroy you and anything good that you have.
Anyone can become the target of a narcissist if they possess things the narcissist envies. This could be material things, talents, friends, a family... Narcissists cannot stand to see other people happy and will work hard to ruin it, even if the person they are ruining is their parent, child, sibling, friend or spouse. They will use projection and other crazy-making behaviors to cloud the truth to the point that the victim can no longer even remember what it is.
If a loved one or co-worker constantly blames you for things that are in no way your fault, if they deny guilt even when caught red-handed, if they change their stance or opinion on something just to oppose yours (even when you are trying to agree with them), if you are constantly off-balance because one day something is OK but the next day it isn't - to the point that you can never do anything right, if they are constantly accusing you of saying, feeling and doing things that you don't, if you feel like nothing is ever good enough for them, if they lie about you to other people... you are dealing with a narcissist.
Once you understand that, things can change. There is help. You can learn what to do to stop it. There are millions suffering in silence because they don't know what they are dealing with or how to get out of it. So many victims of horrible abuse are being that told the problem is them. What narcissists fear most is being exposed for the abusers and liars they really are. They depend on the fact that their abuse is so outrageous, people will not believe the victim. Shine a light on their darkness and share this with everyone you know. Spread the awareness. Stop the smear campaign.
