Death Ride –

Though carousels capture our attention with their musical and colorful, slow spinning array of beautifully painted horses, there is one kind of merry-go-round that, once we board, will end up being the longest death ride of our lives.

Like the lovely, whimsical displays that bring back sentimental memories of all things wholesome and endearing, the Narcissist’s carousel will capture our attention via its magnetic, unearthly charm.

Being aware of the Red Flags of this particular death ride is immensely important in preserving our lives and sanity. These Dark Hearts’ beautiful, enchanting carousels are merely a façade which mask an underlying ride of madness.

Narcissists’ performances are purposely appealing, so that we will be fully captivated, and thereby, lured into choosing their death ride over any other.

Narcissists will speak just the right words in their musical tones, and captivate us in their soothing sentiments of phrases such as “I feel like I’ve known you, forever”, or “You understand me like no one else ever has.” It will all seem like a surreal fairy tale anticipated to have an endearing, happily ever after ending.

As we eagerly make our way to these pseudo, fun rides,we never imagine in our wildest of dreams, that we are stepping on the platform of a joyride filled with danger.

As the rhythmic merry-go-round begins its gently hypnotic spin, our attraction to its loveliness only increases due to the candy-sweetness of it all; thus, we become completely distracted from the Red Flags, no matter how brightly some might be actually waving in our gleeful faces, warning us to the evil world that we are being slowly eased into, until it is too late to leave with the same giddy ease in which we entered.

The spellbinding spin of this death ride creates a deeply embedded confusion and immense uncertainty within us, which is so disorienting, that it is most probable that when we even attempt to make our exit, in our vulnerable and weakened state, we will take an awkwardly, unstable fall, and have a rough time getting back up, again, if ever at all.

From now on, let’s make sure we listen to our gut-instinct (our intuition), warning us that we are nearing the wrong joyride.

We can begin by educating ourselves of what these subtle signs of Narcissists’ Dark Hearts actually consist of, since they are not the normal, common-sense signs that we expect from overt, toxic behavior.

After all, Narcissists and Sociopathic Personalities successfully make it their life’s mission to trick and fool us into the illusion that it is their ride, above all others, which will give us the most amazing time of all!

Maybe we should just skip the madness of these carousel rides, all together, and go to the Haunted House. At least there, we know what to expect.

“Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.“

  1. Good, well thought out post Nika. Yes, never again do I wish to go on one of those toxic rides!

    Makes me kinda dizzy and queasy just thinking about it.

    Those of us with addictions, trauma bonding, and cognitive dissonance do seem to have a much more difficult time getting off the ride, and I hate this.

    1. Yes, and we tend to repeat the patterns of our childhood, Tigerchelle, Michelle P.

      I just hope if I ever get dizzy, again, I will miss the toilet, and aim for the Narcissist’s lap when I vomit. This way, I can share the “love”.

        Haha, so funny!

        I hate the fact that I’ve repeated patterns over and over. It makes me hate myself.

        But Narcs are completely stuck in the same loops with the same defence mechanisms. Not able to change. At least I can improve over time. They can’t.

        I am thankful I am this side of the spectrum.
