But more importantly — LEARN THE BUZZ WORDS!

If you are an abuse recovery advocate who happens to hear a person describing someone in their life by using one or a handful of the aforementioned terms, be kind.

Stop them from going into too many details as a loving act of PTSD de-escalating service and let them know it sounds like they may have been socially used or abused by a person or peer group of the CLUSTER B variety.

Welcome them to Narcissistic Abuse recovery by letting them know a list of relevant key terms to look up and share the link with them to flyingmonkeysdenied.com — or any other Narcissistic Abuse Recovery website!

Keep the faith and educate.

Once you know better — choose better. Tolerating abuse is the stalwart Abuse Enabler’s physical equivalent of slowly committing passive-aggressive suicide.
