Here, I’ve compiled a set of phrases that tend to get thrown around often by these people. (Narcissist)


from “Recovery from Gaslighting & Narcissistic Abuse, Codependency & Complex PTSD” (3 in 1)

You’re so sensitive!

You know that’s just because you are so insecure.
Stop acting crazy. /You sound crazy, you know that, don’t you?

You are just paranoid.
You just love trying to throw me off track.

I was just joking!

You are making that up.
It’s no big deal.

You’re imagining things.
You’re overreacting.

You are always so dramatic.
Don’t get so worked up.
That never happened.

You know you don’t remember things clearly.
There’s no pattern. / You are seeing a pattern that isn’t there.
You’re hysterical.

There you go again, being so ungrateful. Nobody believes you, so why should I?
If you were paying attention… /
If you were listening… /
If you knew how to listen…
We talked about this. Don’t you remember?

You’re being irrational.
You can’t take a joke.
Why would you say that?
What does that say about you?
Why are you upset?
I was only kidding.

I’m not arguing; I’m discussing.
criticize you because I like you.
You’re reading too much into this.

You’re the only person I have these problems with.
Stop taking everything I say so seriously.
You always jump to the wrong conclusions.
