Yes that’s exactly it. The trauma begets trauma and it not only ruins someone’s life. But it literally puts the victim in a kind of torture chamber to be tortured by future narcissists and people who are antisocial. The worst part is that the women often don’t understand what is actually wrong, what causes them to be susceptible to abuse. The abuse fosters high achievement behavior and is a vicious cycle until bigger mental health issues develop in these victims. The harm done is unrelenting unless the victim seeks help.
