In the last few weeks we have moved. This has not been an easy process. The narcissist in my life, set out to deliberately cause issues, as they do. I am fairly sure these toxic beings have some kind of collective consciousness. I am also aware that they seem to what I call “tag team”. One picks up where another leaves off. I am so over it. If I even suspect a toxic person, to quote the Spartan Life Coach.
“I put my shields up.”
The sad thing for me has been to realise that I grew up in a narcissistic dynamic and that I was gaslit within an inch of my life. I suddenly had vivid recollections of an incident last time I was home and saw it in a whole new light. It made me really angry and upset when I had realised the extent of the deliberate cruelty which had been inflicted upon me. I also received communication from a relative in which they made a blatant attempt at triangulation. I saw it clear as day, so I now go no-contact for a while.
The thing is, if they do indeed have a collective consciousness, what affects one affects them all. It reminds me of Captain Picard dealing with the Borg.
Their strength is also their weakness. As much as they may be a unit, they are also a house of cards. People of faith build their homes upon rock and not upon shifting sand.
The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
I miss the world I used to live in but now I have seen the wickedness of these innocuous-looking beings who live amongst us, I can’t unsee it.
