Posted in Parental Alienation & Narcissistic Personality Disorder

There are three components to triangulation:

Victim: This label describes an individual who carries an attitude, in some situations (if not all), of “poor me.” While there are cases in which the person is the victim (due to how they are being treated by others), the triangle describes a person who creates a triangle in such a way that they become the “victim.”
Persecutor: This label describes an individual who attacks the others who are participants in the triangle.
Rescuer: This is a person either within the created triangle or outside of the triangle that acts as a rescuer or someone who is the “saving grace.”
Someone who engages in pathological lying and trouble-making often re-enacts the triangle

I believe in truth, honesty, karma and integrity! KEEPING IT REAL - No one likes someone who lies and lives a different life on social media than they do in real life. ≧◔◡◔≦
