Definition of my mother: Malignant narcissists, like true bullies, abuse their power simply because they can. They can talk endlessly about taking responsibility, but they never genuinely face up to and become accountable for their actions.
A narcissist paints a picture of themselves as being the victim or innocent in all aspects. They will be offended by the truth. But what is done in the dark will come to light. Time has a way of showing people true colors.
