I have picked out a number of sentences, because they all relate to me. It really is as if I was reading something written from my own experiences. "They may cut you off from sex, money, food, affection or emotional love." "You feel like, if you just keep helping them with what they need, then someday they will give you a beautiful life." "Every time you want to say “no” to them, it has a consequence. Not a normal consequence. A painful, frightening consequence. If you say “no” they will threaten to commit suicide, threaten to break up with you. tell you their business will fail because of you and then neither of you will have any future." "Then something about the story will not add up. When you question them about this, you will be met with blame-shifting. The blame for any wrongdoing will land in your plate."

This is so true. My (ex) husband used to act like I was a 'trophy wife' in front of his work colleagues - something I really disliked. "With you at his side, the narcissist looked presentable, successful, smart, worthy, or desirable. You were the trophy wife (or husband), the hard worker, the clear thinker, the kind friend. You helped the narcissist present his superior image to the world. Others thought more highly of him because of you." ~ Grace For My Heart
