I am a self-help junkie, former advocate for victims of domestic violence, current psychiatric RN, as well as being a recovering victim of Narcissistic abuse.

My goal is to educate, empower, and inspire other abuse victims in understanding more about what happened to them (and how to prevent it from happening again), as well as how to go on and rebuild an amazing life.

Even though I have had a lot of "in the trenches" experience with highly manipulative people of all kinds, I consider myself to be a student of Narcissism, mindset, motivation, healing, and life in general, and am by no means an expert on any of these topics.

It's for these reasons, that when you are reading my information that I encourage you to hold to what helps, and let the rest go.

  1. Triangulation is a fun game for the narcopath and an effective “divide and conquer” technique. It rewards with a satisfying sense of being smarter than and superior to others, especially the unwitting targets playing the parts they have been assigned. Stirring up animosity between others is also used to rally supporters and to divert attention away from the devious scheming the narcopath is engaged in.

    Triangulation is used in all social contexts, including the workplace and among interest groups and friends. Abusers discover their manipulative abilities in childhood and refine these conniving skills over a lifetime, making it most difficult to catch them in the act.

  2. I think this was probably the last straw that put me over the edge knowing that my husband is a covert narc. After I found out about my “Mr. Perfect’s” secret online creepy life, I told him that we might need to take some time apart and get counseling. He said to me that he thought he could “move back in with his ex-wife to save money!” He thinks so low of his ex that he said he could probably not even pay her to live there! How manipulative! He had never used triangulation before and that was a real eye opener for me. I really wanted to stick up for his ex at that point (nothing I ever thought I would do!). I told him to leave her alone! He’s already hurt her and me enough. How sleazy to think he can worm himself back into her life and take advantage of her like that. Sadly, he’s probably right, she would likely take him back too. Sickening.

  3. Some of these people do get backlash from their despicable behavior. I have witnessed it, even if it takes awhile…what goes around comes around.

    Do not forget Karma, a very powerful force that hits the ‘baddies’ in the behind and leaves them wondering how things went so wrong. And many of these types of individuals seldom (if ever) learn from their mistakes…

    And one bad thing after another happens to them.

  4. I realized my husband was narcissist after I kicked him out after our son accused him of abuse, and my son was cutting and attempting suicide. He is very covert. Once I made it known I was through, he divorced me and remarried 2 months later. Now it has been 3 1/2 years and he got 2 of my sons away from me and now my youngest, my daughter, wants to go live with him. Will this continue until he “has everything from me”? He did drain our checking account while we were separated and I did lose the house, which I had got in the divorce.
