Twisting the truth is a lie. Narcissists are MASTER Liars and will put their "spin" (lies) onto whatever story works in THEIR FAVOR...expecially when waging their toxic, sick, destructive SMEAR campaigns against their "target".
Sociopaths are thrilled to gain the pity from others and declare themselves victims. With full and unwavering support from their unsuspecting group of patsies, they're able to nurture a dangerous sense of self-empowerment, delusions and entitlement. REAL victims don’t even identify with victimhood until physical and emotional symptoms begin manifesting in their lives as they refuse to believe that their anxiety, addiction/depression/loss of hope is a result of being a victim of abuse,
"malignant narcissism." This is a condition in which people lack scruples and do not relate to others in an honest, healthy manner. Manipulation, deceit and treachery are what we'll experience if we become involved. They are skilled manipulators and highly charming. They know just what makes us tick and they'll try every trick in the book to pull us back into the relationship when we want out. That's because everything to them is a game they desperately want to win.
You don't say...So let me get this right, you can cause destruction anywhere you go, blame, blame, blame, never take any responsibility for your actions, manipulate, lie, spread lies, rumors, and filth all over town about someone but its not ok when someone speaks the truth about you and tries to defend themselves?! Actually its perfectly OK keep talking abusers usually want you silent, and we don't do silence anymore, we have done it far to long! - Narc-ology
