For many years I have tried to understand the mind of the narcissistic abuser.
I admit…their ability to genuinely believe their own lies, to this day, fascinates me.
For do they have insight into the fact that they lied? Certainly, they can remember the events that occurred that favor them, so surely their ability to selectively remember information requires a degree of awareness as to which of their actions would be considered, at least by others, to be immoral?
