Some of you may have seen or read about Darieth Chisolm, former NBC news anchor. She was in a relationship with a very controlling person. She ended it and started receiving death threats and nude pics of her were pasted on the net. OK, I know some are thinking it won't apply to all narcs but these controlling people need to be avoided and be aware of pictures being taken of you. It's really scary. She's speaking out against it and is launching a site to combat cybersexual assault. This is a smear campaign against her like no other. I'm glad she is OK and commend her for fighting back and getting the law involved. An injured narc (if he is in fact one but nonetheless) is dangerous.

@Ducktape True that we don't know what people are capable of. I think so many us, including me, were so in denial of that. We thought that we could "tell" if someone was capable of bad things. That's not always the case. How many abused, raped or murdered victims thought their instincts may have been overthinking and ignored it??!! @pickone is right about not giving anyone ammunition to work with. I was just as guilty for getting comfortable too quickly. As we have discovered, that can be dangerous.

@Ducktape We did the best we knew how at the time -- when we knew better, we did better. In the words of the late Maya Angelou, a very wise role model for women. I think this is why the narcissistic experience is such a wake-up call and a learning experience for anyone who has gone through it. Many of us, especially women, were brought up to see the good in people, give the benefit of the doubt, and trust and please people. We want people to like us, and think we're "nice." Unfortunately, especially in today's world, it seems, you can't hand your trust out too quickly. Trust is a special gift and people have to earn it -- and show by their actions, not just their words, that they're deserving of your trust. This takes time and careful observation, which is not possible if people move in together a few weeks, or a month, after meeting. If the person rushes you into a relationship too quickly (especially in the love-bombing phase), that should be a huge red flag!... Also if they want to know everything about you -- but disclose very little about themselves, that's another red flag. The only way to make our past painful experiences meaningful, is to learn from them, and help others.....

I admire her for speaking out. Hopefully this helps those of us suffering from narcissistic abuse. I've been honestly terrified that my ex will do something with photos of me too.
