Unmasking the Two-Faced Deception

Thwart the narcissist and unmasking the two-faced deception. By doing the unexpected, I wanted to thwart the narcissist who once had entered my life, but the damage was already done. Nevertheless, in the end, I realised, nothing with the narc was ever real. Therefore, a lovely future with him was doomed, because everything he presented was a fake fairytale!

Welcome to my blog.

So, let me tell you some secrets about this fake future and love life he promised me. Here is the thing, because he only wanted my valuables. Guess what! The dude never wanted me or my love, so I just wanted to unmasking the two-faced deception.

In fact, in my opinion, he is and will always be a two-faced person. A delusional creature who hides everything, in-between his many scams and lies.

Still and all, I am sure I did the right thing. It was when I finally escaped from the narcissist clutches when I also was unmasking the two-faced deception of his. Thereafter, it made me reflect on my life, about the time, living with such a manipulating person. Let me tell you; it was difficult to survive all the meanness the narcissist exposed me to.

And let me also tell you; it was not an easy task to escape. Besides, it was difficult to go ‘No Contact,’ too. Well, having said that; at the end of the day; I wanted to protect myself against the narcissist’s m evil conduct. Therefore, my only choice was to grab my pen and put it all down on the gloomy piece of paper. Oh, it just lay in front of me on the table for me to fill it out.

My name is M. L. Stark.

By now, I am sure you already know I am the author of HUGGER MUGGER: The Con Man Smile and MAZE AFLAME: Flimflam Man

Author: M. L. Stark

I am M. L. Stark, and within the pages of "HUGGER MUGGER: The Con Man Smile" and "MAZE AFLAME: Flimflam Man," I pour out the fiery essence of my very soul. These books are not just ink on paper; they are the embodiment of my triumph over the darkest shadows of my past. Through the flickering flames of adversity, I have risen, crafting tales that echo the resilient beat of my heart. Every word penned is a testament to the strength I discovered within myself, a testament to the resilience of the human spirit. I have dared to bare my scars, to expose the rawness of my wounds, for I know that in sharing my journey, I offer hope to those who may tread a similar path. And as I close each chapter, I am reminded of the immortal words of Bob Marley: "The biggest coward is a man who awakens a woman’s love without the intention of loving her." These words resonate within me, fueling my passion to shine a light on the darkness, to empower those who have been wronged, and to stand as a beacon of love and resilience in a world that too often seeks to extinguish the flames of hope.
