Quotes on Narcissism & The Narcissistic Personality Disorder

"Narcissists enjoy your pain. The more you show the narcissist your tears the more grandiose they will feel. If you really want to make the narcissist feel all powerful, simply let him break you." ~Tigress Luv

"Whether with a narcissist a week, a month, a year, a decade, or a half of a century, one thing is for sure...one day you will wake up to the revelation that it was all just a figment of your imagination." ~Tigress Luv

"The narcissist lives in his own, self-created parallel universe. In this world he is the Almighty Gatekeeper. To the unsuspecting and trusting, the narcissist can expertly charm them into this kingdom only to dethrone them in the blink of an eye, stripping them of their souls and casting their left-over, bleached bones to the demons of his hell. Tread lightly in his world as this feeding fuels his power and satisfies his ego-hungry cravings; the narcissist's ego is never satiated." ~Tigress Luv

"Ironically, if the narcissist sees that you don't love him anymore he will then be intent on making you hate him. Either way, he will feel powerful in his complete control over you. The one thing that narcissists can't stand is apathy - towards him." ~Tigress Luv

"Forget the food, the way to a narcissist's heart is with your tears; narcissist feed on your pain." ~Tigress Luv

The Narcissist and His Spun Reality


Article by Tigress Luv, The Breakup Guru and brought to you by The Counterfeit Heart: Living With, Loving and Leaving the Narcissistic Man

The narcissist can spin his own reality as easily as a Wheel of Fortune contestant can spin the lucky wheel. He is a master at psychological 'abduction' and he can distort your thinking into illogical randomness that may make you feel like you are 'losing it'.

He can that rationalize 'his' reality and make you feel even more confused. He can make you feel bewildered and befuddled all while making himself look calm, cool, collective and rational. This, in itself, is a form of abuse.

It's all part of the narcissist's 'devaluation cycle'.

The problem is many of us are still thinking that the 'fake' person we met in the beginning is 'real' and we keep waiting for this wonderful person to reemerge. It is this person that we fall in love with, and we haven't the ability to see that this person never truly existed. He was a figment of our imagination - an actor in a play - a semblance of a real man. The man that we believe we love isn't real...the 'real' man that stands before us - belittling us and devaluing us - is the man he truly is. The other man was just a fallacy.

Once you become in a 'real' relationship with a narcissist the 'devaluation cycle' starts. You will go from 'wonderful 'to 'despicable' almost overnight. He will insult you, make you feel unattractive, incapable, and unpopular. He will tell you that you are a failure and that people don't like you. He will pick you apart, dissecting you to find faults and flaws and point these imperfections out to you. Oftentimes, he projects his own shortcomings on to you, accusing you of doing or being the very same exact thing that he is.

Unfortunately, even the wisest of women can unsuspectingly be caught up in the 'devaluation cycle' without even realizing it. This is because they are either in denial, or still believing that the man that stands before them is the 'same' man they met, and not realizing that the man they met was simply a fabricated facade meant to charm her and lure her in.

It's a sad fact that by the time we realize what is happening we have already suffered much damage. Healing from this traumatic experience can take years, and recovery is slow. Narcissistic abuse is one of the hardest abuses to overcome. To make recovery even more difficult, most of our friends only see the 'fake' side of the narcissist and can not relate to us, or understand with compassion and support, the trauma we have suffered through with the narcissist. This cuts off our support group, and makes recovery from a narcissist also one of the loneliest and most isolated roads you will travel.
