"I can’t control your behavior; nor do I want that burden… but I will not apologize for refusing to be disrespected, to be lied to, or to be mistreated. I have standards; step up or step out." - Steve Maraboli parents are ruthless!
Narcissists Lie - "Your not trusting the narcissist will be turned around to paint the picture of YOU being insecure. You will be accused of being “jealous” / insecure / damaged / broken. All things you’re not – but things the narcissist is. You will begin to believe that you are insecure for not trusting them. You in turn, stop trusting yourself and your own perceptions and rely on someone who is lying to you."
Lies and manipulation. Everything was based on a lie from the get-go.....yet I'm the one who's wrong and was out of line? Sorry I don't just sit back and watch someone lie to me and accept them with open arms....too strong and smart for that.
The prime example of why I don't trust people and stick to myself. I have very little friends, and the fact that a person could LIE about such a thing like this angers me. I've been thru a lot over the last few years that I'm still dealing with and the fact that a person could lie about a thing that so close to home with me, really hurts my heart. Watch who you trust, honest people aren't so honest these days.
