Narcissists are a varied lot, though they all seem to get some kind of high from gas-lighting people.
I escaped my fiance last December. I escaped my best friend in January of this year.
Both are narcissists.
This tells me I have a pattern. There is something I do that attracts them.
I have managed to get fully away from my ex best friend. I am mostly away from my ex fiance.
However, I’m starting to see signs of another narcissist in my life.
They will antagonize me while hiding it behind jokes or making it seem that their way is logical and moral.
When I anger them, they punish me by ignoring me. After a day or so, they return as if nothing happened.
Meanwhile, I’m all anxious and upset.
They try to make me feel better by telling me not to be upset.
Really? Does that EVER work?
They apologize for some minor thing they did, but ignore the big things.
I’m not positive they are a narcissist. I will leave, if I verify they are. I’m not going through that again. Period.
I’m almost to the point where it doesn’t matter if they are or not. I don’t deserve to be treated this way.
Here’s my question:
How do you tell the difference between when someone is just messing up and when they are playing you?
It’s only been two and a half months, so is that enough time to figure it out?
Until next time…
