  2. Wow, so alarming! I am in the process of recovering from a severe, very malicious and very public slander and defamation of character attack against me by my narcissistic and psychopathic predators (Mother, Ex Husband, and Former Business Associate) who used the common ‘gaslight’, ‘humiliate’, ‘destroy and discard’, ‘isolation tactic’, and ‘flying monkeys’ bag of trickery on me. Used my iPhone to invade my privacy and conduct unethical, illegal and immoral acts with the content they stole from hacking my phone. Very terrorizing and eye opening experience. Everything stated in this video from the predator to the victim’s common traits are so true. Being nice can get you victimized and even killed. I recently became a member of a support group and quickly learned that this is a lot more common than people realize. Very concerning. In hindsight there were several warning signs if I would have been aware. “Over 60 Million people in USA being harmed by Psychopathic Narcissism. Number 1 public health crisis in our society today. These people without conscious destroy millions of productive lives, including children. Impacts every part of our society, our legal system, criminal system, and social service system. Costs $40 Billion a year. 10 times more than depression.” Outrageous! Let’s help spread the word. I shared amongst my group in hopes they too will spread this knowledge to educate people from becoming a victim of such malicious people. My psychopathic attackers took me to a point of hate/rage/depression, turning lifetime friends into enemies, ruined my family and relationship with my child, ruined my credibility and reputation personally and professionally, used/harmed my kids emotionally, landed my kids and I in therapy sessions, cognitive behavioral health therapy, etc. Lessons learned and an expanded sense of spirituality came from the experience but one I could have gone without. I am better prepared now. You live and you learn, however people who carry out these malicious acts and behave like this should be punished by the law. #semicolonproject

    • Thanks for sharing your story, which sadly, all too many will recognize as a description of their own devastating victimization experiences, which they have suffered alone, never imagining that there are people around them subject to almost the exact same abuse procedures and tactics. You are right. Toxic people will continue to dominate and destroy our world as long as their victims assume that no one will believe their story and feel all alone. The only chance for us to keep toxic people in check is if they know that we know. Good you found a support group. Imagine the possible impact if support groups around the world engaged in public education initiatives? Keep telling your story!
