An old thread....

Has suddenly been resurrected today and I need to say something.

A lot of people dismiss what others tell them about someone because "they are really nice to me, they seem intelligent and lovely"

This isn't some fluke.

This happens ALL the time ....a family man kills his entire family and you hear people on the news claim "He was a nice guy. Seemed like a good man, took care of his family".....

Behind the scenes he was abusive. Cruel. Threatening. Intimidating. Scary.

Manipulative humans know how to manipulate everyone around them.

Narcissits have flying monkeys. These are the people who come to their defense when they are called to the table for their true behavior.

Don't be a flying monkey.

All too true. The darkside of people can be masked so well and others only see the show put on for them by a dark soul.

[@583889,lilacgirl] Absolutely. And it is hard to decipher the red flags.

[@1845,JaggedLittlePill] it was a long time ago now 😔
Abusers will be a pillar of society so they can have people who vouch for them and say I have known them for years, they couldn't possibly be like that.

I never would think flying monkeys could be used in this context

[@1201561,Kimchigirl] It was derived from the Wizard of Oz.

The wicked witch has her flying monkeys....😂 it works. It's a term used in communities that speak about having been victims of Narcissistic abuse.
