Narcissistic Denial Cycle

A typical discussion from the narcissist’s point of view.
There are basic and common phrases the narcs use:

You are not hurt.

Well you shouldn’t be hurt.

You are wrong to be hurt.

I didn’t hurt you.

You’re too sensitive.

You’re hurting me!

Anyway, it’s your own fault you got hurt.

Can’t you forgive?

I did nothing that needs forgiving.

Oh for Pete’s sake, why do you have to live in the past?
