So please be careful who you expose, some toxic people can be extremely dangerous. Their fake reputation is their life.”~ (Toxic Narcissist Quotes)

Toxic Narcissist Quotes

They refuse to take a good look at themselves because the feedback would not flatter them, and narcissists must always appear good, even to themselves. They are incapable of looking inward and learning from experience, and instead opt to live in a state of denial.

The only thing the narcissist will be doing is stewing in hatred for you and pity for themselves.”

They are always looking for methods to win or get one up. Everything is manipulation. There will never be any real interaction or communication, that will result in fairness and real resolution. That is not the way their mind functions. Don’t play their games.”

Narcissist Abuse Quotes

Narcissist Abuse Quotes

#118 “People would always say, “I would never let anyone treat me like that.” They don’t realize abuse is not always physical or outright verbal. Some abuse is more insidious and starts out slow, with continuous small indiscretions, until they program you to accept their bad behavior. It’s punishing you with emotional distance and making you feel unworthy, it’s slowly ignoring your wants and needs, making you feel unloved or unimportant. It’s a progressive manipulation, where you ultimately find yourself, wondering how you ever got into that position.”

#120 “A narcissist isn’t horrible and abusive 100% of the time. If they were, it would be easy to recognize the abuse, prove it to other people, and make a clean break with the support of your friends and community. They are horrible and abusive 80% of the time. What do they do with the other 20%? They try and convince you the 80% isn’t happening.”~ (Female Narcissist Quotes)

#121 “Eventually, a narcissist will treat you like you are his or her arch-enemy. Why? Because to the narcissist, everything is a war. They dwell in a psychologically inflamed, triggered, paranoid state, filled with constantly imagined slights. Fighting battles that don’t even exist outside of their chaotic minds. Because a narcissist’s intentions towards others are so exploitative and morally bankrupt, they suspect everyone else must be secretly corrupt too.”

#122 “Narcissistic abuse: I think the only ones who could understand this type of abuse is other people who have gone through it. Because if it didn’t happen to me, I would have never accurately understood it. It feels earth-shattering when the mask comes off, and they are so cold, so cruel, almost gruesome at times. It is so difficult to accept that none of it was real. You feel traumatized and really shaken up. It’s like waking up from a bad dream to a nightmare. Especially if you dealt with a covert narcissist, who appeared to be so good and humble, even kind and compassionate, only to find the devil at the other end of the mask. It’s so difficult getting used to the depth of their cruelty, and their ice-cold hearts. The shock doesn’t wear off easily. At least it didn’t for me.”

#123 “The narcissist cannot save you from the narcissist. During an abusive relationship, we develop a dependency on the narcissist. We develop a pattern of going to the narcissist to comfort us from the same pain they caused. This is extremely toxic. The narcissist cannot save you from the toxicity, damage, and repetitive cycle of abuse. They cannot fix what they have broken. Only you can.”

#129 “They never want to discuss what triggered you. Just how you reacted.”

#130 “The narcissist paints a picture of themselves as being the victim or innocent in all aspects. They will be offended by the truth. But what is done in the dark will come to light. Time has a way of showing people’s true colors.”

#131 “To my narcissist, you looked at me as a tool and used me as just that. You didn’t care for me: all you wanted from me was the adoration and attention that you crave. I just want you to know that you didn’t break me. My spirit may have been hurt, but since leaving you behind, it has once again bloomed and flourished. In spite of all your attempts to degrade and destroy me, you failed. I stand here today in defiance of you and everything you did to me.”~ (Female Narcissist Quotes)

#132 “A narcissist thinks they have the right to mistreat and hurt you, but you don’t have the right to react or stand up for yourself. They are allowed to criticize, voice all their opinions, and be rude, cruel, and insensitive, but how dare you point out their bad behaviors, or say anything back to them? Their behaviors suddenly become all your fault and you are “crazy”, “a drama queen” and a “horrible” person for standing up for yourself and not accepting and tolerating their crap. They never blame themselves or see their own horrific behavior.”

Parenting Narcissist Quotes

Parenting Narcissist Quotes

#136 “The narcissistic family system is topsy-turvy. Provoking behavior is not seen as the problematic crazy-making behavior that it truly is – whereas standing up for yourself, or becoming distressed by the narcissist’s crazy-making behavior is viewed as the behavior of a troubled person who can’t let things go.”

#137 “Both narcissists and empaths suffered from early childhood trauma. The empaths took that pain and became more compassionate, not wanting others to suffer the same fate they did, while the narcissist got angry and decided to take their anger out on the world. Vowing to put themselves first. Empaths were strong enough not to let trauma destroy their goodness, while narcissists were weak and let the trauma overcome them.”

#138 “Narcissists make terrible parents. They lack the basic empathy and selfless nature that loving parenting requires. They have no problem meeting their own needs first before their children’s needs and feel completely justified in their actions, narcissists create valid resentment in their children and later on in life, wonder why they have no authentic relationship with their adult children. Chronic selfishness and parenting do not go together.”

#139 “The adult children of narcissists who realize that their parent(s) is a narcissist often make a decision not to have contact with that parent. This seems very harsh to those who do not understand narcissism but makes perfect sense when you consider that those with malignant narcissism do not change, and further contact with them simply gives them an opportunity to continue manipulating and abusing their children.”

#141 “You are portrayed to family members in the most negative light possible. The narcissist goes out of their way to destroy your credibility by telling anyone who will listen how bad you are. This serves two purposes. It proactively aligns people on their side should you try to seek outside support, and it unifies a choir of people to echo and reinforce their strategy to make you believe you are bad and worthless.”

#142 “The narcissistic parent has no conscience and no feelings for others, especially their own children. The only thing that matters is their own selfish ego: coercing, manipulating, causing chaos, and damaging lives everywhere they go.”~ (Narcissistic Quotes)

#143 “Nobody plays the parental alienation card quicker than the abusive parent who’s lost control over the survivor’s mind.”

#144 “Narcissistic parents tend to be so self-absorbed, they equip their children with very few [to no] life skills. No emotional coping skills, no “common sense” skills, and no interpersonal relationship skills. They teach their children that you either control or be controlled, and that appearances are much more important than reality.”

#145 “Narcissists have secret lives. They lie effortlessly. They are two-faced appearing with a perfect public image that most people believe. In the shadows, when no one is looking, they do tremendous damage to families, including their children.”

#146 “Narcissist Father: He knew what he was doing. He just didn’t care who got hurt. Even if it meant his own child would be used to hurt someone. Revenge was more on his mind, not what was best for his child.”
