The truth would destroy a Narcissist!
What is the one thing a Narcissist does not want other people to know? The truth. More specifically, Narcissists do not want the truth about them to be known – or that they are insecure, malicious, and devious people with a toxic agenda. Beyond being embarrassed by the truth of their behaviors and thoughts, they have a deathly fear of being exposed and REJECTED for who and what they are. This is because they constantly use lies, manipulation, and distortion to control other people and get what they want and THAT does catch up with. If people were to know about their true nature, they would want nothing to do with the Narcissist and they would NOT be able to obtain their precious supply to survive. The Narcissist is very aware of this and that is why they HAVE to build up their defenses with backstabbing, triangulation, and smearing people Let’s just say they are always prepared for the inevitable. Similarly, their whole grand façade is just part of their defensive pretense or a cloak to hide their darkness. What seemed to be the great friend, the love of our life, a close family member, etc., is really just a disguise they wear to con each and every target.
