      • One can only hope. I honestly don’t know. The darkness is so all prevailing that at times I question if anything will penetrate it. I will NOT give up hope, though, Persia. And I WILL continue to focus on what which is Beautiful and share that with the world. Even that gets discouraging for you would not believe how often I hear, “When will we see MORE?” Really? Why not looking at what I have posted. Here again, I will not give into the defeat! ❤

      • Powerful words. Very true. I do get disheartened by what I see, and do try to concentrate on the good. But it is really hard at times. Hope and faith are definitely what we need to hold on to.

      • Persia, I of anyone know how hard it is. Believe me. I find myself in sobs at times, just so overcome with all the darkness that I seem to constantly stand up against and push back. The days that I feel LOVE is every day and the days I get a relief from this “stand”, I am truly grateful! If I kept my eyes on all the horrors of this world, I would not keep my sanity. I would be so sunk in fear, that fear would eat me alive. SO many people are being eaten by fear, and by all that is Holy, I will not!! Stay strong, stay forcused on those things and people you Love, and create from your Heart. BE Blessed!!! ❤

  1. The facts about emotional manipulator S are so true. Definition of a narcissist. It can often be a slow burning flame that you ignore until your world catches on fire and you have to escape. It’s good to share sadness and triumphs with others. There’s always hope.

  2. You described Narcissistic behavior!!! I studied it last year!! I understood Passive Aggressive Behavior because I was Psychiatric Nurse. But Narcissism is not a diagnosis that we actually treated. Understanding that opened my eyes to people in my life!!! A true Narcissist will keep coming to harm you no matter how far away you are!!! Kind of like a snake!!! I have found no way to handle them but eliminate them from my life!!! Thank you for this article!!!

    • Thank you for your comment.
      It really does open your eyes. You realise that people who have been around you for years, are actually just like this, but you have no choice to let them fall away. If you don’t it really is damaging for you. More often than not, it’s the ones you least expect it to be too.
      I guess there is no way to handle them, but to go ‘no contact’. However, it should not let you not to want to share your story. Tell it anyway.

  3. Out of all the criteria or descriptions of the person with this issue- the most bone chilling symptom is the ability to actually insert themselves into the extreme pain of other people’s situations and collect sympathy as if they were even affected. For example the loud blubbering person in the front row at a funeral, who.doesmt even really the deceased – but grabs the chance to get 30 minutes of attention. Scary ..

  4. Run! They will do all they can to destroy what is good in you! I am almost 60 yrs old and stayed with one like this; a bipolar-passive agressive, narcissist. In my ignorance I felt If I only loved him enough, built up his self esteem, I could “fix” him. But in his twisted mind he didn’t need fixing, I did! (By the time I was through, I did need help!) Like an ass, I stayed with him many years, and please! believe me when I tell you that they are masters at deception. Having nothing inside, they watch what other people do and mimic humanity well; make no mistake, they are like sharks that can smell a drop of blood a mile away and they will zero in on those with low self esteem, and those who show any kind of “weakness,” like compassion and kindness. They must be cut from your life completely, no contact of any kind, don’t read their messages, don’t accept calls, nothing! Sorry so long but if this helps even 1 person it’s worth it!

    • Joan, I am sorry. I understand why you thought you could ‘fix’ him – I thought the same too. I wish there was something I could do to make your situation better.

  5. Persia, I just had to remove a person from my life that fits every one of your facts from my life. What is sad is that it also means that her two awesome kids are out of my life as well. But I was ending up doubting myself and it has taken much too much work getting to a point of self-love to have her break it down. Thanks for this post. I really validates that I made the right decision.

    • It is for the better, but it is such a shame the innocent gets dragged into all of this. Unfortunately, what we will sometimes find is that sacrifices will need to be made. On this occasion, it is severing ties with this person’s children. Love and hugs.

  6. Reblogged this on and commented:
    I think we all come in contact with emotional manipulators, it is just whether or not we let them worm their way into our lives.
