Narcissus. A tale of a man so enchanted by his own reflection, that he fell deeply in love with it and drowned in an attempt to reach it.
Narcissism is a psychological disorder, a mental condition which makes a person perceive themselves as a superior human being. A ruler of the world. An actual God, if you will.
Their sense of entitlement is making them blind to the cold-hearted truth that in reality, they’re nothing more than mere mortals.
However, if there’s anything that narcissists are extremely good at, it’s keeping their victims quiet and obedient. Narcissists are easily recognized by their alluring charisma, fake kindness and tender words that eventually turn into the most vicious, manipulation tricks and wicked lies.
So, in order to protect yourself and prevent anything from happening, here are 30 common and brutal lies that a narcissist will tell you in order to keep you hostage. If you hear any of these phrases, run like the wind!

5. “You would be alone and miserable if it weren’t for me. You are lucky I’m here.”
