This! #Preach It's even more difficult to recognize red flags when you've grown up in toxic environments where what most people consider red flags are your norm. There were a couple things that were the "aha" moments for me. Today for some reason I'm unusually grateful for my own personal journey. I was very lucky that I wasn't any more intertwined in my past relationship because I can't even imagine how much more difficult it would be to leave when there are children involved. Not only…
Narcissistic "gaslighting". Purposely changing the facts of a situation, so that their victim starts to question what they heard in the first place. This is all done very methodically and intentionally to confuse you to the point that you begin to question your own sanity! See the red flags for what they truly are. Your gut telling you to RUN AWAY! NOW!!
Red Flag #10. You find yourself playing detective. It’s never happened in any other relationship, but suddenly you’re scrolling back years on their Facebook page and albums. Same with their ex. You’re seeking answers to a feeling you can’t quite explain.
Red Flag #15. Cannot put themselves in your shoes, or anyone else’s for that matter. You find yourself desperately trying to explain how they might feel if you were treating them this way, and they just stare at you blankly.
RED FLAG ALERT- A quick moving relationship, love bombing, showering attention, putting you on a pedestal...Fast moving relationships are a HUGE RED FLAG!!!!! You need to GET REAL, this person showering you with compliments and attention does not even know you...This is NOT what normal healthy adults do!!!!
Red Flag #25. You fear that any fight could be your last. Normal couples argue to resolve issues, but psychopaths make it clear that negative conversations will jeopardize the relationship, especially ones regarding their behavior. You apologize and forgive quickly, otherwise you know they'll lose interest in you.
