What is Narcissistic Abuse?
The word “narcissists” has become a buzzword over the past several years. While the conversations about narcissists are taking place, many people still don’t fully comprehend it.
A person with Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) is not merely one who likes to talk about themselves non-stop and take endless selfies. They are disordered individuals who are under a strong demonic delusion. Masters of manipulation and disguise, they wreak havoc in the lives of those with whom they cross paths including their children. Anyone raised by, married to, dated, worked with, or worshiped with one has undoubtedly experienced or witnessed some of their toxic behavior. No, your love, self-sacrifice, and self-sabotage will not save them from themselves and it certainly will not make them change their ways.
Narcissistic abuse generally starts subtly and gradually worsens over time and frequently follows a cycle of love- bombing, devaluation, and discard. The abuse is emotional, psychological, and spiritual, and it may also be financial, sexual, physical.
Narcissists use abusive tactics to mask who they are, and they have a toolbox full of manipulative tactics. Proverbs 18:21, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit." Verbal abuse is one of their favorite methods of abuse. They gaslight, project, put-downs, accuse and criticize their victims, and make unreasonable demands, threaten, and name-call. Their words are venom-laced curses that exhaust, dehumanize and demoralize.
