Then comes projection:
Narcissists love to project. A good example is when a narcissist tells you that someone has been mean to them and spreading lies, you’ll then know for sure, that it is in fact the narcissist who has done this, not the person they are talking about.
Another example is they will claim their loved one has been cheating on them, you can bet the truth is the narcissist is the one who has been playing away.
Just know whatever the narcissist is saying to you about the other person, is exactly what the narcissist is doing.
The first seed of being the victim has been planted and now they will continue to feed the lies, so the seed may grow. You will hear things such as, “Look what they have done to me, all I did is love them” or “I’m the good person here, why are they doing this” as examples.
