The Mask Comes Off – Projection

Narcissists have a tough time with self-reflection and personal accountability so they project their inner ugliness elsewhere. More specifically, they will project onto their victim/supply. A narcissist’s supply is not seen as a person by the narcissist, but an extension of the narcissist.  This makes the victim/supply a perfect scapegoat. This helps the narcissist to keep his/her “perfect” image intact.

Projection really is the narcissist’s reflection. A narcissist his/her victim how he/she feels about themselves and what he/she is doing when projecting. My ex-husband was no different.  He made some of the same statements in the image above during the marriage and post-divorce.
