The Toxic #Narcissist Cycle of Abuse: 5 Stages Thread
Stage 1:
Love Bombing & Lying:
Your #abuser lies to you from the start, convincing them-self/selves & YOU that you are liked, included, adored, loved & respected. Your #boundaries are respected & you are overly welcomed
In this phase, you will put on their ‘glasses’, be overmedicated on their empty promises, #future faking, deception & lies 👉🏻 all leading to fake #hopeism. They make you wear their glasses whereby you ‘view’ them as from #heaven & ‘saving you’, being ‘right’ or on the right side

I didn’t recognise the earliest signs of control- like him telling me I don’t need to drink coffee because it wasn’t good for me.

I mistook that as a sign that he cared.

I didn’t recognise it as a red flag when he told me he wasn’t close to his kids and felt closer to mine and loved them so much more.

I only saw that he thought my kids were amazing- not that he was disparaging of his.
