9. “No, I’m better than them.”
A very effective way in which narcissists capture their victims is to make them believe that they will never find someone better than them. They will speak ill about everyone around you, forcing you to feel they are the best catch.
10. “No, honey, I promise, that’s the last time!”
At times when narcissists realize that they have screwed up really bad, they hand out fake promises to convince you to stay with them. They’ll promise to never do it again, only to break them eventually, many more times. Once you accept their apology they’ll feel you’ll forgive them every time.
11. “She was so abusive, my ex! A horrible person!”
The narcissist always projects himself as the ultimate victim and tells you everything about their trauma and pathetic past so that you treat them with the utmost care and love. Their “traumatic” life provides them a free way to be horrible human beings all the time and thus compelling you to treat them kindly no matter what so that you don’t come off as insensitive.
12. “Don’t worry about this, it’s fine!”
Narcissists feel that rules don’t apply to them and thus they expect you to clean up after them in case things go wrong. They will force you to think that it’s your duty anyway and make you do it.
13. “Not my fault. That’s on you.”
A narcissist will never take responsibility for his actions and you’ll always be the one at fault for any of his mistakes. So even if he abuses or treats you badly, he’ll justify it as your mistake and not his. They’ll manipulate you into thinking that you’re at fault and make you apologize.
14. “I’m doing this because I care for you.”
This is a very common lie that a narcissist or even an abuser says to give a false sense of comfort to their victims. They pretend to care about your well being when in reality they simply don’t. So when you hear this, understand that it’s a trick to impress you and to capture your attention.
15. “If you leave, I’ll die.”
They emotionally blackmail you to stay with them because they know you can’t deal with that pain. He won’t die and even if he does, it’s not on you.
