Manipulating a narcissist has a lot of parallels with the Grimm Brothers’ Beauty and the Beast.
Belle becomes trapped with an unimaginable creature and uses her wits while remaining true to herself.
A narcissistic relationship is similar; only the prince turns into the beast, there is no happily ever after, and the locked castle could be your own home.
Narcissistic victims are also prone to Stockholm syndrome due to the trauma bonding that happens.
You can break those bonds without breaking your belief system.
