The Covert Narcissist’s Hooks:  Flattery, Fantasy and Poor Me Syndrome

Narcissistic Abuse Fallout: Learning to Trust Again

Ending a long-term relationship with a controlling person will lead to a sense of freedom, but it’s a pleasure that can’t always be enjoyed right away – there are many layers of conditioning to remove and a long-lost identity to find.  Recovering co-dependents are often saddled with debilitating trust issues

Keeping people ‘in the dark’ (withholding information deliberately) is one of the narcissist’s favourite tactics, because when others are second-guessing themselves or their reality, they become easier to control and manipulate.  Confusion and doubt distract the chosen target and limit their chance of ever finding out who they’re dealing with

Emotional Neglect and Narcissistic Abuse – A Recovery of Self: Healing through Acceptance
