Find "peace from the puzzle," in more ways than one. Emotional abuse is an unfair puzzle that can keep you confused, frustrated, and manipulated into pounding a puzzle piece until it somehow fits a picture of happiness (mysteriously shown only on it's 'cover'). To trade these pieces into one peace, awareness has to win. Specifically, we'll need awareness of "the puzzle."
Emotional abuse is the only riddle with confusion itself as the main character. It depends on it's people staying in the dark, finding comfort in denial, and even blaming themselves! But everyone deserves the bigger picture to see what's really happening to their energy, their motivations, and... the Narcissistic People causing it.

They’re allergic to accountability

They copy your characteristics
None of their advice ever helps you
They constantly advertise their judgements
They play the victim

The Traits vs. The Narcissist
Tolerating a Narcissist is completely different from merely experiencing narcissistic traits. While the mere traits feel "I'm... too sexy for my shirt," a Narcissist feels "so sexy, they'll hurt" anyone who embarrasses their fragile ego! From appearance, to reputation, to their perspective, this song never stops in the toxic concert of Narcissistic Personality Disorder.
Over time their ego becomes an unnatural inner bond. So a narcissistic parent's favorite child is their inner child; their real kids exist only to serve the parent's ego. And in the same fashion, a lover to a Narcissist is actually the third wheel. Proof? Where is their energy (not empty words) to fight and nurture, above anything or anyone else? It's a 'twisted design!'
