A narcissist paints a picture of themselves as being the victim or innocent in all aspects. They will be offended by the truth. But what is done in the dark will come to light. Time has a way of showing people's true colors.
The narcissist or sociopath picks their target exactly, and then destroys all the qualities that attracted them in the first place. Always jealous, always envious, always trying to destroy my life, always failing.
