Flying Monkey, Narcissist, Or Another Victim?

Quora Answers: Do Flying Monkeys Pretend To Take Your Side?
She Admits He’s Abusive And Complains About Him. Then She Turns Around And Shows Me Posts About How Much He Loves His New GF.

Flying monkeys will definitely pretend to take your side when they’re trying to manipulate you on behalf of the Narcissist.

However, I’m not so sure that’s the case here. Two possible scenarios come to mind.

One is that she’s also a Narcissist, and is enjoying herself at your expense.

It could be a version of the mean-sweet cycle in toxic romantic relationships. She pretends to be a sympathetic friend one minute.

Then she intentionally causes you pain by showing you posts about his new girlfriend.

Think of the devaluation and gaslighting techniques of the Narcissist.

Another possibility is that she’s having an affair with him.

I don’t know the nature of your friendship with this person. Is she a long-time friend to you?

Has she displayed this type of behavior before?

If you were friends and it is an affair, she may be having mixed feelings.

One minute, she could be dealing with guilt that comes with betrayal.

The next minute, she may be jealous because the Narcissist is triangulating the two of you.

If she’s a victim of the Narcissist as well, she would certainly have unstable emotions.

This is the kind of cruelty Narcissists find so entertaining.

He gets to feel powerful while continuing to cause you misery.

Quora Answers: What Are The Long-Term Effects Of Narcissistic Abuse?

Long-term exposure to Narcissistic Abuse can wreak havoc on victims long after leaving their abusers.

Along with the devastating effects of PTSD and C-PTSD, survivors are left with permanent changes to their brains.

In other words, repeated emotional trauma, over time, causes brain damage.

It shrinks the hippocampus and enlarges the amygdala.

The hippocampus is the part of your brain in charge of memory and learning.

The amygdala controls emotions like love, hate, fear, grief, guilt, shame, and envy.

It’s also responsible for heart rate, breathing, and the fight-or-flight mechanism.

Living in a constant state of fear causes the brain to produce more of a hormone called cortisol.

The hippocampus becomes impaired, while the amygdala is stimulated.

This results in victims focusing more on the negative emotions that they’re feeling.

At the same time, their ability to absorb new information is restricted.

Years after a toxic relationship has ended, painful memories can be triggered by subliminal hints, such as smells, sounds, and pictures.

Because the amygdala remembers the stressful events, victims are subjected to an unwanted walk down memory lane.

Changes in personality are another effect of Narcissistic Abuse.

Victims are left with eroded self-esteem, a lack of self-confidence, and an inability to make sound decisions.

Self-doubt and self-recriminations become a way of life, and inner joy and peace remain elusive.

It would be difficult to list all of the long-term effects of Narcissistic Abuse.

Some things just cannot be explained with words.

Quora Answers: INFJ Relationships

Do INFJ’s Seem Needy Or Clingy In Romantic Relationships?

There are times when I feel really needy or clingy, but I try not to show it.

For some reason, it’s not easy for me to reveal certain vulnerabilities and weaknesses.

Instead, I have a tendency to expect my fiancé to just know what I need and give me the comfort I desire.

That’s obviously not an easy feat. Yet, I get discouraged if he doesn’t read my mind.

To make matters worse, if he’s unable to recognize my neediness, I start to distance myself emotionally.

What follows is not pleasant for me, but most especially not for him.

I get really bitchy and take my unhappiness out on him.

Through no fault of his own, he gets punished for the sins of every Narcissist who ever abused me.

Totally unfair, I know.

I’m happy to say he’s learned to recognize what’s happening and knows how to calm me down.

He’s aware of the scars that were caused by years of Narcissistic Abuse and is quick to forgive my temporary insanity.

Afterwards, I feel embarrassed and terribly guilty for my behavior and apologize profusely.

Ironically, it’s at this point that I am the clingiest.

I’m just no longer afraid to show it.

Quora Answers: The Narcissistic Landlord

What Are The Red Flags Of A Narcissistic Landlord?

Narcissistic landlords will invade your privacy at will. This includes entering your living quarters without your knowledge or consent.

Although this is illegal, the narc sees absolutely nothing wrong with it.

He’ll also have no qualms about pilfering your belongings if he fancies something for himself.

As is true of all Narcissists, smear campaigns and senseless gossip will be a regular occurrence.

He’ll entertain himself by creating drama and chaos for unsuspecting neighbors who would otherwise co-exist peacefully.

These landlords will be unlikely to properly maintain the rental units, and may even refuse to make necessary repairs.

They’re well known to manipulate tenants into paying for the costs themselves.

They make assurances that the expenses will be reimbursed or deducted from the next month’s rent.

This never happens, of course, and if confronted, the narc will flatly deny ever making such an agreement.

He’ll keep up with your comings-and-goings, and take note of your visitors’ habits, as well.

If he sees an opportunity to instigate turmoil with this particular knowledge, all the better.

Sometimes narc landlords damage their own rental properties in order to collect insurance money.

One couple I know lost all their possessions after a fire of unknown origin destroyed their duplex.

To add insult to injury, they were considered suspects and subjected to a lengthy arson investigation.

The landlord had an abnormally high occurrence of similar fires at several of his properties, though he was never charged with a crime.

The voyeuristic parasites may have hidden video cameras and/or recording devices so they can spy on your most private and intimate moments.

Probably the most common red flag is the multiple attempts to gain sexual favors from anyone they deem to be exploitable.

Narcissistic landlords love to prey on vulnerable tenants and will harass them mercilessly.

This is by no means a complete list of red flags. But hopefully, it’ll give you an idea of how despicable these vermin can be.

How Evil And Vengeful Is A Covert Malignant Narcissist To Their Victim?

Quora Answers: Why Do They Seem So Innocent And Charming To Everyone Else?

They’re the equivalent of Satan in human form, if that tells you anything.

They gleefully create a living hell for their victims.

The false innocence and charm they portray to others is a result of years of practice at honing their manipulation techniques.

Plus, lying and deceiving comes easily to them.

They’re proud of their ability to fool people and view it as a natural talent.

Malignant Narcissists are violent, sadistic monsters with no morals, integrity, or conscience.

I was married to one for almost eighteen years.

He tried to kill me on several occasions and was especially skilled at gaslighting and sabotage.

He was physically, mentally, verbally, and emotionally abusive.

He’s a compulsive liar, cheater, thief, and sexual deviant.

Malignant Narcissists are often called psychopaths and sociopaths.

They are the scourge of humankind. Nothing in existence is worse.

What’s The Value Of A Relationship With A Narcissist?

Quora Answers: I’m In A Long-Distance Relationship And I Think She’s A Narcissist. How Do I Stop Myself From Contacting Her?

I’m going to assume you’ve correctly identified her as a narcissist.

With that in mind, maybe you should look at it from the perspective of value.

What do you value most in life? What really matters to you?

What are you not willing to live without? What are you willing to give up?

Do you value your physical and mental health? What about your self-confidence and self-esteem?

Do you want to keep your sanity and sense of humor?

Do you cherish your family and friends?

Maybe you take pride in having a good reputation and excellent credit.

Or maybe you just bought your first home.

Did you work hard to build a successful business or career? I doubt you’d want to throw it all away.

Perhaps you have a new car that you really love?

Do you have children who adore you, and whom you treasure more than life itself?

The people, places, and things you value most are what you’re most likely to lose with a narcissist in your life.

Plan to give up everything you hold dear.

Or plan to give up the narcissist. It’s a choice only you can make.
