She was a Monster

As I mentioned in my comment, I was riveted to the screen as I read this.
The single best gift you can give a friend who is sharing a similar story with you, is your belief. The fact is, Narcissist Abuse and how it is manifested by these predators will challenge your belief. It did mine, and my story is Charles’ with some variation. Even now, I am subjected to anything from benign disbelief and incredulity to flat-out blame and accusation.
Please read this exceptionally informative piece. Narcissist sociopaths present fairly equally in both genders but the stories of male victims are much fewer than female. It’s important to set aside our notions about victims of abuse in all instances and to encourage our sons and daughters to speak, tell and not be cowed by people who are simply not well-informed enough to believe. My sincere appreciation to Madeline for allowing me to reblog.
