THIS is a debilitating side effect of living with a narcissist for 30 years. You never know what they are scheming or when they will deceive you next... but you know they have a hidden agenda and it's coming again and again. The only way to protect yourself is to be on guard every minute. It is exhausting and creates paranoia... and they love that they have that power over you. A very good reason to quit this bullshit.
I think this is often true, but not always. You may be having a perfectly good day and then suddenly find yourself in a hellish situation. Learning to detach yourself and observe, goes along way to maintaining a peaceful existence.
