About This Site
Narcissism exists on a continuum, ranging from healthy to pathological. People with Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) have pathological narcissism, and they’re a different breed from the rest of the population. They destroy the lives and minds of their victims, using complicated manipulation techniques, mind games, sabotage, and other types of abuse.
Narcissists do these things without remorse, and while pretending to have the victim’s best interests at heart. Most victims don’t know they were targeted by a narcissist until it’s too late. By that time, their lives are turned upside down. Their self-esteem, support network, reputation, and finances are destroyed, through no fault of their own.
The best way to protect yourself from these predators is with knowledge. Narcissists follow distinct patterns in their relationships. Their behaviors, characteristics, and manipulation techniques are recognizable if you know what to look for. If you don’t know what you’re dealing with, you can’t protect yourself.
On this website, you can learn the warning signs that someone is a narcissist, the different types, their behavior patterns, and how they brainwash victims. There’s information to help you understand their motives, manipulation techniques, and how they think. You’ll find posts about the destruction narcissists bring to people’s lives, the ways victims continue to suffer long after the relationship ends, and the importance of the No Contact rule.
