Product Description

The narcissist's relationship agenda...

When our partner has a narcissistic personality, only those who've actually experienced the madness will ever understand what we're going through. When Love Is a Lie is a straight-up, tell-all narrative about narcissism that deliberately skips the clinical bullshit to focus solely on the personal experience. Zari Ballard's story will educate, enlighten, and empower you to re-evaluate the mind-boggling dysfunction in your own relationship. Compare her story to your own and watch what happens. As it has for thousands of abuse victims worldwide, When Love Is a Lie is going to resonate with you in ways that no other book about narcissism ever has.

Any relationship involving a person with a narcissistic personality disorder will inevitably take a dark turn. We stay in the relationship thinking we can fix this person or love him/her out of their bad behavior but the truth is that narcissists, sociopaths and psychopaths can never be fixed - not with love, therapy, or any magic pill. Life becomes a roller coaster ride from hell with Lucifer himself at the controls. If that sounds dramatic, then you've never loved a narcissist. If that sounds familiar, then this very special book may just change your life.

When Love Is A Lie breaks down the signs of a narcissistic personality, exposes the narcissist's way of thinking, and explains exactly how a partner with this type of personality will....

  • ..over time, deliberately and methodically manage down your expectations of the relationship so that you expect less and less and he/she gets away with more
  • ..mimic the appropriate emotions at opportune times to achieve desired results

  • ..use the silent treatment, disappearances/reappearances, and other demoralizing (and passive-aggressive) control tactics to punish those who dare to call him/her out on questionable behaviors
  • ..create constant narcissistic chaos and turmoil even - and especially - during the "good" times as a way of keeping you in a heightened state of co-dependent anxiety 24/7

  • ..juggle many relationships at once - sometimes for years on end - with no one being the wiser, not even you
Narcissist abuse is often so intentionally passive-aggressive that we never quite understand what's happening until it's too late and we're already hooked. Friends and family try to be supportive but they simply don't get it. This book, from its very first pages, offers a reprieve from this isolation. When Love is a Lie will make you laugh and it may even make you cry but, above all else, it will provide confirmation and validation that, in a relationship with a narcissistic partner, YOU are not the problem.
