I am many things in life, but selfish is so far away from my essential personality that my brain refused to allow "selfish" to be added to the rather long list of things that it had already believed when my abuser said them about me.
He said that you are selfish omg why do they say we're selfish when they want the whole world and more their the selfish ones always thinking they are being ripped off

I think they say these things because they need to justify their behavior and they are unable to take responsibility for their own actions. Therefore, it must be someone else's fault.

The constant put downs by the abuser of the victim, the victim's family and friends. The put downs make the abuser falsely feel "superior" about themselves. Maybe they were abused and this is learned. The abuser's ridiculous accusations of the victim cheating on them, as the abuser is so insecure always thinking the victim is cheating. It has been decades so the memories are mainly faded. The memories of the abuser wanting to be in full control, controlling every move, every comment, every decision. Showing anger and violence when anyone challenges or even if they don't just ridiculous outburst over nothing. The ridiculous blaming the victim for everything that happens and never admitting they have done anything wrong. When they lose one victim, they just find another victim, they have to have a victim to abuse and blame. Glad I got away. I will never tolerate anyone to be abusive. It has been 20 years since I got away and was only with the abuser a short while. It only took one episode of violence for me to escape safely with my five children and his two children. Never went back.

Trying to recall the most ridiculous thing he ever said. I recall one time he was insulting my brother, someone he only met one time, he was making fun of his shoes, which were special hospital shoes for nurses and doctors. My brother is a doctor. I think he was intimated by him so he made these horrible insults. Was making fun of my brother's shoes and clothes. He also insulted my children. Such a sad and cruel person. So glad I got away so fast. Only knew him less than one year when I got free.

Now I live domestic violence free and have done so for 20 years!
