Before we fully recover it's a tricky time for us when we still feel the emotional pull, and it's the time when we need gentle but firm parenting from ourselves to bring us back to the reality of the situation.
A recovery from narcissistic sociopath relationship abuse. Using guilt trips to control and manipulate their victim. Playing on their emotions. Putting their "spin" on the truth to confuse and manipulate. This behavior is abusive!
The only way to stop them is to cut them out of the equation of your life. It can make the narcissist angry. That evil narc is beneath the level of contempt. Void of understanding and empathy. They just don't care who they step on and hurt in the process.
