It's Just Staying Home, Right??!

Imagine being locked up with an elephant. 

I don't know how much you know about them, but they CAN be some of the most gentle animals on the planet. Ever watched those Momma/Baby elephant videos on YouTube? "Awwwww..."

Now, think about the videos of elephants that have gone rogue. Not so much, "Awwwww...", huh??!

That is how, in a Domestic Violence situation, a Victim feels they are living - with a Narcissistic elephant.

Never knowing if they're going to be kind, or a bit rogue - walking on eggshells, all the time, because they never know when they're going to go off. 

It's even harder, during this pandemic, when many victims are on lockdown with their abusers - stress of things like job loss, etc, only exacerbates their feelings of inadequacy, self-pity, etc.

Narcissists, who have never worked on any of their issues, because they don't think they have any because everythin has been done "to" them. 

They don't understand, or care, that their version of "paying it forward", is only perpetuating their situation. 

They don't see that they're only recycling what has been done "to" them. 

Have a good day, and be safe... #EtSoV #ENDtheSILENCEofVIOLENCE
