Baiting and Bashing

Baiting and Bashing

As you heal during recovery know that this is one of many ways a narc may have achieved control. Baiting and Bashing is used for control by diverting all attention from them unto you. The way it works is they will falsely accuse you of anything just to provoke a response/action from you. They then try to target you by getting others to support their behavior against you. The abuser enjoys receiving power/control from tormenting with impunity and the positive attention he or she receives from playing the victim and fishing for sympathy. The end result is to intimidate the victim in order to prevent them from speaking the truth. It’s is telling the truth about your story that you begin to heal.
