Why Do They Believe the Narcissists?
It's a question I've asked for years. My mother was always believed. Friendships and family relationships are utterly destroyed because of the lies of a narcissist. Even if you have witnesses in front of the face of some flying monkeys backing you up that so and so happened, for some reason so many people give the narcissists the benefit of the doubt and won't believe you. It was devastating to me to have a supposed friend not believe anything I told her. The other day others in the mix, backed me up and with them I had some validation, that this person was extremely toxic. It wasn't just me. In this case the person even caught the person in some lies and STILL believed them over me and one other person. It boggles my mind how easily some are fooled. I have seen many narcissists who exhibit extreme charm. A few get found out when they discard and devalue because there is no horse in that race for them but even that is rare. Charm is something social predators specialize in, and are good at. They can put on the smile and appear even "harmless" to lure the flies into the spider web.
