About the Book

Most people do not realize they are in a narcissistic relationship only to find out that everything they thought about their relationship is really a lie. The hardest thing is to look over your life whether it was a long-term relationship or a short-lived relationship and to find out that the person you thought cared did not have the capacity to do so because of a personality disorder. A personality disorder well hidden under charm and charisma yet destructive to themselves and anyone involved. It hurts to find out that you were only an object/tool to accomplish their own personal goals until you were depleted of the resources needed for their personal gain. This book allows you to take a look at seeds planted throughout life and the thought process that has led so many people into this type of abusive relationship. This book is an honest look at real experiences, the emotional damage and the reality of the lack of awareness within our society of how these individuals operate and leave a trail of destruction everywhere they go.
