A huge step in your recovery is forgiving yourself. Forgive when you didn't see those early red flags, forgive when you got that gut feeling and ignored it, and forgive yourself for wasting your love, kindness, trust, compassion and very soul on Evil. - Mary A. Faher/THE CEMENT BENCH
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."
