    Causes confusion

    A narcissist causes confusion.  They can take any statement and turn it around on anyone to make that person 2nd guess themselves.  They minimize their victims.Ultimately, the end result is the narcessist bringing back the focus onto themselves.You can truly lose yourself.

    My father and I do not have a good relationship. In truth, I feel like I only have one parent, my mother.
