Creeping normality - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Creeping normality - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Gradually trees became fewer, smaller, and less important. By the time the last fruit-bearing adult palm tree was cut, palms had long since ceased to be of economic significance. That left only smaller and smaller palm saplings to clear each year, along with other bushes and treelets.

Creeping normality refers to the way a major change can be accepted as the normal situation if it happens slowly, in unnoticed increments, when it would be regarded as objectionable if it took place in a single step or short period. Examples would be a change in job responsibilities or a change in a medical condition.

The Manipulator's 6 Steps to Idealization | Narcissistic Personality Disorder | Scoop.it
The idealization phase in a psychopathic relationship will be unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. You will be swept off of your feet, lost in a passionate fantasy with someone who excites you on every level: emotionally, spiritually, and sexually. He will be the first thing on your mind when you wake up in the morning, waiting for his cheerful, funny texts to start your day. You will quickly find yourself planning a future with him—forgetting about the dull realities of life. None of that m

5 Differences Between a TRUE VICTIM & FALSE VICTIM of Narcissistic Abuse

5 Differences Between a TRUE VICTIM & FALSE VICTIM of Narcissistic Abuse | Narcissistic Personality Disorder | Scoop.it

It’s NOT EASY using the V word.

 

Personally, I don’t LIKE it. It’s not a word I’ve used to describe myself through very many situations in my life, because I am the kind of person who takes responsibility for things that happen to me. While, I certainly had choices and consequences (thus responsibility) in my relationship with a narcissist as an adult – it is the only experience I think the V label accurately describes and depicts.

 

I was caught unaware. I was told things that weren’t true. By relying on those things, I made decisions that put me in harms way. I was sold a bill of goods and promises by a person who was well aware that they had no intention of ever delivering on those promises nor being capable of being a GOOD PERSON towards me, so that he could use me for things that benefited ONLY one person in what was supposed to be a “relationship”: THE NARCISSIST.

 

This being said, I don’t throw this word “Victim” around LIGHTLY. I think that the topic of FALSE VICTIM claims by narcissists should be evaluated with a more discerning eye when considering the damage and injustice done by a narcissist to the lives that their false allegations destroy.

 

Let’s examine the traits of a well-trained pathological liar, a narcissist; with a history of duping others and manipulating to avoid responsibility vs a credible, honest, albeit “emotional” target of the narcissist.

Nathalie Aynie's insight:

"The lengths you go to for your abuser are not typical behaviors. They are the puppet masters and they have no loyalty to any one. They will cut loose your strings if you can not act out their plans, they will twist you into knots you can not escape from, they will move you in directions you normally would run from. They will tie you to them with indescribable insecurities and fears, memories that you can not erase."
