Many times, children are the unfortunate victims in divorce proceedings with a narcissist. They are used pawns in the Narc's game of payback against the victim.
Whether you were in the relationship with the Narc for one year or 10 years (or more), it'll take the same amount of effort to heal. No matter how you begin your healing and recovery journey, please know that it won't be an overnight success story.

Manipulation in all forms is used in every day life. From lawyers persuading a jury to see their point of view, to kids on a debate team trying to manipulate the audience into siding with them.
We've all experienced shame in our lives. But toxic shame is overwhelmingly detrimental to our psyches and well-being. In general, shame triggers internal responses within each of us depending on our own experiences. Shame becomes toxic when it's internalized due to our past traumas and distorts our self-image.
When you think of the word "boundary," what do you think of? Do you think of a fence bordering your yard? Do you think of the border between states or countries? What about personal boundaries?
