Listening to others when they speak is perhaps one of the most important tools we have as a society. In fact, its effectiveness can be seen in the way we interact with others at work, at school or anywhere else. Many times, we listen with the intent to respond to the other person. Because of this, we often times miss the core of the other person’s message. This is where active listening comes in.
Last week’s blog discussed ways that you can foster a deeper bond with your children despite the Narcissist’s attempts to destroy that bond. But what happens when roadblocks prevent communication with your children? What happens when you’re not certain of how to communicate with your children and you inadvertently create these roadblocks?
Relationships with Narcissists are tumultuous at best. When we have children with them, it becomes a whole new ballgame, as the children are typically used against the healthy parent in ways that would make an outsider’s head spin. But despite the nature of Narc relationships, there are ways to maintain a close bond to your children.
Narcissists are like poker players – they will not show their hand. In fact, Narcissists will play the cards very well in the beginning. They will bluff. They will act like they have the best hand in order to pull you into the game. The problem with this is that the Narcissists will eventually whip out their ace in the hole. Their winning hand. They use asymmetrical warfare in their efforts to destroy their opponents. Their targets.
