Q & A – what happens when the narcissist controls the story?

When a narcissist controls the story, they typically manipulate the narrative to suit their own interests and agenda, often at the expense of others. This can happen in various situations, such as in personal relationships, the workplace, or social settings.

Here are some common ways a narcissist may control the story:

  1. They twist the facts: Narcissists may twist the facts of a situation to make themselves look good and others look bad. They may selectively leave out details or emphasize certain aspects of the story to suit their agenda.
  2. They play the victim: Narcissists may play the victim to gain sympathy and support from others. They may exaggerate their own suffering or downplay the suffering of others to make themselves look more sympathetic.
  3. They blame others: Narcissists may blame others for their own mistakes or misdeeds. They may shift the focus away from themselves and onto others to avoid taking responsibility for their actions.
  4. They gaslight: Narcissists may gaslight others by denying or distorting reality. They may make others doubt their own perceptions of a situation, making it easier for the narcissist to control the story.

Overall, when a narcissist controls the story, it can be difficult for others to have their own perspectives and experiences validated. It is important to recognize when this is happening and to stand up for oneself and one’s own truth.
