A smear campaign is something to EXPECT from a narcissist. They are going to try to take you down, tell anything new that will listen to their lies to discredit you and hurt you and leave you feeling abandoned. Then they will tell their tale of woe to whoever will listen and recruit them to do further damage to you.
With a narcissist you share under EXPECT this behavior but when you can learn to ignore it and the flying monkeys that delivered it then you will win. If you let it bother you they win!
We saw a perfect example this weekend when our narcissist called out his flyer my monkeys ? to attack Lieselle. They actually thought she had been being mean to him… they called her names but please remember narcissist pigs, sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never harm me.
