Gossiping is one of the worst things you can do to someone. Whether it’s intentional or not, spreading rumors, lies, & other confidential information can have a devastating effect on relationships. Proverbs 17:9 in the Amplified Bible says, “He who covers & forgives an offense seeks love, But he who repeats or gossips about a matter separates intimate friends.” Unfortunately, gossiping is a common tactic used by narcissists to achieve their goals.
Narcissists want their victims to be isolated because it helps them to manipulate & control their victims when there is no outside interference. They know that if their victims are surrounded by people who know the truth, their lies & manipulations will be exposed. To avoid this, they use gossip to turn people against each other & create division. This isolation helps to keep their victims in a state of powerlessness & confusion. Today, we’ll look at how narcissists use gossip to achieve their goals of separation & control.
Narcissists use gossip to spread lies & rumors about their victims. They may tell one person one thing about their victim & then another person something completely different. This creates confusion & misunderstanding between the people who have been gossiped about. It also serves to further isolate the victim from their friends & family.
The lies & rumors that narcissists spread about their victims are hurtful & damaging. They may accuse their victims of things they didn’t do or spread rumors about their personal lives. This can make it difficult for the victim to be taken seriously or even believed by people who believe the gossip.
Narcissists also use gossip to discredit their victims or make them look bad. They may spread rumors about their victims’ shortcomings or flaws in order to make them look bad. This can make it extremely difficult for the victim to get the help & support they need which can make it difficult for victims to trust others or form meaningful relationships.
Narcissists may also use gossip to discredit people who could potentially challenge their power or control. They spread rumors about these people in order to make them look bad & ruin their reputation. This allows the narcissist to maintain their power & control in the situation.
Finally, narcissists also use gossip to gain attention & power. They may spread rumors & lies about their victims in an attempt to gain the attention & admiration of others. They may also use gossip to manipulate & control their victims. They may use gossip to turn people against each other or even to manipulate their victims into doing what they want.
Narcissists are experts at using gossip to get what they want, & sadly this tactic often works & has devastating effects on their victims.
Gossip is a powerful tool. It’s important to be aware of how gossip can be used negatively & to protect yourself & those you love from its damaging effects.
No matter how tempting it may be to gossip, it’s important to remember that it can have serious consequences. Be mindful of what you say & keep Proverbs 17:9 in mind. By doing so, it will help you not to participate in such a harmful activity & it will help you not to assist a narcissist in their cruel games.
