Why?

Aimless and with intent, wandering through the dark and fragrant world of Los Angeles; purposefully going public to embarrass my family and friends.

    Thank you for your knowledge and generosity in sharing your
    experiences with narcissists. In my last relationship, I couldn’t
    quite put my finger on it but there was something not quite right,
    something too good to be true. He was cunning in his wooing and
    manipulations. He studied me and morphed into the man of my dreams,
    always ‘on’ and with a ‘false front’ – even portraying himself as
    the super nice guy and the hero. Whenever I requested truth,
    honesty, or vulnerability, he disappeared. And why was I so
    attached? Aware of his shallowness and his methods and yet I
    couldn’t detach. It was an unequal relationship bound by
    intermittent reward, which is stronger and more addictive than any
    other kind of reinforcement. I was hooked. I excused. I
    rationalized. Thank you. Your writings have been illuminating and
    cathartic, and I am deeply grateful.

    • I find narcissism and denial incredibly fascinating and disturbing all at once. But it isn’t as hard as we think to unmask a narcissist. All one has to do is disagree with them and voila! the mask is gone. I’m glad my ramblings have helped you in some way.

        Ah yes, but this one was so cunning, so manipulative that with the discipline of the athlete he once was, he never showed the narc rage. In my presence, he played the nice guy….the hero….the guy everybody loves. But I discovered that when I wasn’t around, he was a different person and actually bullied and used sarcasm. So subtle and so caustic….
