The Role of Stockholm Syndrome in Narcissistic Abuse

One of the saddest things about Narcissistic abuse is how the victim will often protect or even cover for the Narcissist while the Narcissist(s) is trying to destroy them.  At a later time the Narcissist will use this against the victim, especially if a  Narcissistic injury has occurred.    The Narcissist will use and exploit kinder or weaker people in order to be admired and pitied by others.  Even while a victim is being exploited and abused you may still hear them defend the abuser(s).

The Narcissist's Daughter

A commonly expressed opinion is that those who talk about mental health problems are doing so for pity or attention. It is assumed that only these things could be a solid enough reason for speaking about something so taboo and uncomfortable.

Please let me speak for myself, and possibly on behalf of many others, so that I can attempt to clear up this foolish and cruel misconception.

I do not want your pity. I do not long for your attention. What I hope for is empathy, I dare to dream that you will stop and try to place yourself in my shoes. I wish for understanding, kindness, and tolerance – I crave your acceptance and support, your friendship.

Please do not judge me when you notice the scars that colour my wrists. I know they are ugly but they are a part of me now, I can not change them.
