“It really shines a light on narcissism, how easily disguised it is and how many don’t know they’re even in such a relationship, let alone their friends and family around them. Strongly suggest anyone in such a relationship or supporting someone who is, read this to get a real understanding of what it’s like (and gain hope of a better future).”
