Narcissists constantly lie, exaggerate, and distort the truth to make you look crazy, abusive and bad. They provoke and bully, and do everything in their will to make you lose your temper in front of family and friends. They want you to look bad, whilst they act the victim. This tactics is called: Projective identification and Baiting. It's deceitful and treacherous.
Reminds me of my Narcissistic Mother In Law and how her adult children's are always turning a blind eye towards her bad behaviour. My narcissistic mother in law got all her adult children to worship and fear her.
A narcissist mother is emotionally immature, the child has to take care of her. The needs of the narcissist mother come first and are like the needs of a hungry baby bird. "Feed me, feed me" the narcissist mother cries to its child, instead of caring for its child's needs, the mother is like a vampire feeding on the child.
