being in recovery is badass! something that i have always kept to myself because i thought i was ok so i didnt need to talk about it...then i had a serious relapse because i ignored the warning signs, but thankfully the road to recovery is always there.
Minimization, trivialization, discounting. FAVORITE Tools of the narcissist. (they work very hard w/ these tools to discredit any signs of their cruel, selfish, abusive behavior. Especially when they fear the true personality/behavior will be revealed))
