"If you respond to being lied to by being upset, that's not an overreaction..." Cosign! Remember if you lie, hell hath no fury like a woman who has been betrayed + stealthily plots her revenge...one day when you least expect it. ;)
Narcissists Lie - "Your not trusting the narcissist will be turned around to paint the picture of YOU being insecure. You will be accused of being “jealous” / insecure / damaged / broken. All things you’re not – but things the narcissist is. You will begin to believe that you are insecure for not trusting them. You in turn, stop trusting yourself and your own perceptions and rely on someone who is lying to you."
"I can’t control your behavior; nor do I want that burden… but I will not apologize for refusing to be disrespected, to be lied to, or to be mistreated. I have standards; step up or step out." - Steve Maraboli parents are ruthless!
