I get it. You were in love. You had built a life with the Narcissist. But you were dealt a huge blow when the Narcissist discarded you like yesterday’s garbage. Whether the discard was a week ago, a month ago, or a year ago, one thing is for sure. You can’t stop thinking about the Narcissist. But you want to. But how?
Ever hear of the phrase that someone can “dish it out but they can’t take it”? Yeah, Narcissists are a shining example of those who just do not take criticism. Ever. Oh but they can dish it out!
A reader recently brought up a very good point. She said, "How do you defend yourself against a smear campaign when you don't even know what's being said?"
This led me to want to break the smear campaign down a bit.
Thank you once again to my friends over at Soulmates in Hell for this guest blog post. I have learned so much reading their blogs. Can any of you readers relate to today's blog? Comment below. And as always, I appreciate you for sharing your stories.
In the mental health community, there are several personality disorders that share features and symptoms. That is why they are clustered, or grouped, into the same diagnostic bunch. The designation for this shared group of disorders discussed below is called Cluster B.
One of the most detrimental trademarks of Narcissistic and Emotional Abuse is psychological and emotional invalidation. Narcissists pull this tactic out of their arsenal to ultimately destroy their victims’ self-worth and self-esteem.
If you are a member of Facebook groups like I am, you'll likely be aware that Facebook groups are split into three categories - public/open, closed, and secret.
If you are reading this blog post, chances are you are a Narcissistic Abuse survivor. You may be a member of several Facebook support groups. Some of these support groups are both closed and secret.
There has been cause for concern in these closed and secret groups that posts and comments can be seen by non-members. I totally understand this concern. You may not want your NX to see what you post in the groups you belong to.
In the world of healing from toxic relationships, you will likely hear the term "red flags" often. When it comes to Narcissists, these red flags often don't show up until later in the relationship, if at all.
The question "Why do Narcissists lie?" is an ever present one for victims and survivors of Narcissistic and Emotional Abuse.
After the Narcissists discard us, thoughts and feelings begin to swirl around in our mind. What if we loved them more? What if we tried to please them more? What if we didn’t pick that fight? What if we just tried to pitch in more around the house? The “What if” game is a dangerous path to go down. Don’t play that game.
