Narcissistic Mind Games

The Logical Heart Knows Best

Manipulative people are emotionally immature and have a fragile sense of identity. If you try to hold them accountable for their abusive behavior, they will defend themselves because they can’t admit they may be wrong, or that they have faults.

When you address problems with them, they will play mind games with you and bring up the past, antagonizing and attacking you, so they put you on the defensive and you lose track of the issue you were trying to solve. It’s chaotic and exasperating.

Eventually, you realize you’re not getting anywhere and it’s making things worse, so they wiggle out of accountability, leaving it unresolved. Frustrated, you try everything possible to reason with them, but it does nothing but leave you exhausted, battered, and defeated.

These manipulative personalities rarely change, and it hurts you to keep trying. Educating yourself and getting help from support groups and counseling/therapy can save you. What really helps is going low contact or no contact if possible. ♡

I didn’t know it was them and not me. Now I know the truth. I want to help you realize the truth, too. You don’t have to walk on eggshells anymore. It’s never been you. It’s not your fault. There’s nothing wrong with you.

I wish I would have had help to figure it out sooner. That’s why I started The Logical Heart Knows Best. I want to help others like me to figure out it’s them and not you. I can help you figure it out too ♡
