We talk about narcissism and gaslighting all the time, so when we found this clip, we knew it had to be shared. Perhaps you have experience with arguing with a narcissistic husband or wife.

Maintaining any form of relationship with a narcissist can be dangerous. From growing up in a narcissistic family to finding yourself in a relationship with one, it’s important to know how to protect yourself against their tactics.
