Do they believe their own lies?
Something I have been curious about.....does the S/P/N truly believe what they say during D&D (smear campaign) or do they know what they are saying is completely untrue and they do it anyway as part of the process? At what point do they believe their own lies or maybe they never do and are just playing games? Like the rest of you, I went from being the most wonderful woman and fiance to being this person (in his eyes) that I have no idea who he is describing. In your experience can they even recognize the difference between truth and lies in general? Is there some degree of projection occurring still at this point? Do they TRULY see themselves as victims to unjust people or is this just their way of gaining sympathy yet again?
