Victim Blaming In Narcissistic Abuse –
To those who are on the sidelines, declaring there is a willing interaction played out between the Sociopath and the victim, whereas both take their part, here are a few factors to consider:
1). We are talking about a Sociopath! (These are evil personalities who torture and brutalize animals, young children, babies, and the most innocent. They do not lose a wink of sleep over their horrifying deeds, ever);
2). These predators wear convincing masks, pretending to be that which they are not, to hook and ensnare the unsuspecting (which is their mission in life);
3). Already groomed (sometimes from as early as childhood), leaves the victim vulnerable;
4). The victim takes part in this interaction for the predators’ (feigned) all-consuming love.
Victim Blaming In Narcissistic Abuse
Narcissists envelope defenseless, pre-groomed targets, thus taking their part of this dance with the sole purpose of injuring the victim.
Yet, as in the well-known cliche, it takes two to tango, victim-blaming is nothing new. The Sociopath is convincing and charming, and people do not wish to believe evil exists.
It is much more comforting to imagine the victim is exaggerating, or too emotional, than to consider someone could be so diabolical beneath a mask of kindness.
The mesmerized prey glamorizes this interaction because of the proposed offering of a much-needed love (sometimes because of severe childhood neglect). However, the Sociopath is taking part (or, taking the lead), to carry out that which these kind take on as their breath of life– the victim’s destruction.
Again, the principal point standing out in this supposed partnership are the intentions of each partner.
Heal me, O the LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for you are my praise.
