Every person who has been in a relationship with a narcissist knows how charming and endearing they can be. However, the emotional, mental, or even physical abuse can leave you with permanent scars on your heart and make you unable to love and trust again.
Narcissists are masters of manipulation. They hit you where you hurt the most and then have the audacity to blame you for it.
