A narcissistic man can give you the silent treatment or make you a victim of gaslighting.
What about when lies are more than exaggeration? Narcissists are all too aware of their imperfections, but only at the subconscious level, and the way they handle this is to project their own imperfections onto you.
And why do they fear remorse so much? A man may try to tell you that he got married when he was young or lead you to believe that he was somehow tricked into getting into a married.
People have used these words to bolster the idea that women are subservient to men or that they cannot approach God without a male authority figure in their lives.
