Living in the Shadows

October 5, 2015

‘”In 1933… Germany introduced the “Malicious Practices Act“… over 10,000 victims were arrested, many of them just disappeared, after being reported by their neighbour.”‘

“The Malicious Practices Act was a desperate measure introduced to rid the German state of its ‘oppressors’ and ‘enemies’.

Narcissists isolate their victims and often commandeer the relationships we have in our support system to garner the sympathy of our friends and family before we even have the chance to crawl for help, mustering the words, “They abused me”.
