Victim Reaction to Abuse by Narcissists and Psychopaths | HealthyPlace

A form of self-delusion, refusing to believe that some diseases are untreatable. Malignant optimists see signs of hope in every fluctuation, read meanings and patterns into every random occurrence, utterance, or slip. These Pollyanna defences are varieties of magical thinking.

“If only he tried hard enough”, “If he only really wanted to heal”, “If only we find the right therapy”, “If only his defences were down”, “There must be something good and worthwhile under the hideous facade”, “No one can be that evil and destructive”, “He must have meant it differently” “God, or a higher being, or the spirit, or the soul is the solution and the answer to my prayers”.

From my book, “Malignant Self Love – Narcissism Revisited”:
