Confrontation is a broad term used by many a Passive-Aggressive Personality to encompass all their partner’s misery brought about as a reaction to this abuser’s disrespectful and demeaning statements and/or underhanded behaviors.
The serpent will retract its fangs and take on the victim role while deflecting blame back onto their prey, claiming that confrontation repels him/her. Thus, when conveying injured feelings, the target looks like the unstable, argumentative partner who enjoys starting fights.
In time, the barrage of belittling insults and degrading actions from the Passive Aggressor will become even more hidden beneath a dismal haze of guilt and self-questioning suffered by the accused.
Since Narcissists consider genuine emotions a handicap, they manipulate other’s vulnerabilities to their advantage, always winning as they take full control of relationships.
Without nostalgic memories or tender thoughts over time-invested, these cold-blooded figures slither away with no warning- while filling their tummies with rats, cockroaches, and bats- when inconvenienced by their partner’s confrontations (AKA: battered feelings).
* My goal is to validate the bizarre ironies that exist in Narcissistic Abuse to help ease the loneliness and confusion that many men/women endure as recipients of these personalities.
