Horror stories abound, cautionary tales which everyone should be aware of, about the Vindictive Narcissist.
- Years spent in legal chivvying, answering motion after motion, false accusations, thousands upon thousands of dollars paid to attorneys, bankrupting a former spouse emotionally and financially, with no end in sight. It’s a game of winner-take-all.
- Even worse, years of custodial battles, back and forth to court, rife with abusive and manipulative tactics, children hurt and their lives disrupted, with litigation and upset becoming part of the fabric of their lives.
- The adult daughter or son who finally confronts a narcissistic parent, sick and tired of being manipulated and marginalized, and becomes the unwitting victim of vicious gossip and innuendo, ostracized by family and friends alike, labeled a crazy person or unstable. Sometimes, that parent isn’t content to just wreak social damage but seeks to involve spouses, offspring, and employers in the fray. It is a highly personal vendetta.
