Have you ever dreaded the holiday season? If you are or were with a Narcissist, it's no surprise. Narcs set out to destroy all that you love about this special time of year.
The Narcissist will do whatever it takes to keep control over you. One of the many ways this is done is by employing verbal attacks. Words as weapons can cut the victim deep and right down to the core.
Narcissistic Abuse Syndrome is a very real result of what you endured throughout your relationship with the Narcissist. You are left with several very distinct signs that indicate you reached a level of emotional desperation.
What is trauma bonding? How does it affect victims and survivors? Why is it so difficult to break the bond? I will answer these questions and more below.
If it is one thing that survivors need after Narcissistic Abuse, it is the need to feel safe. We hunger for it. We ache to have that feeling. It is a basic human need.
It is a term that warrants serious discussion. It is a term that when uttered will leave a lasting imprint on your mind. It is something that profoundly impacts those who it invades. It is emotional rape and its aftermath wreaks havoc on the victim.
Much like the fog can cloud a driver's view while on the road, so can Narcissistic Abuse obscure a victim's mind. So what can a person do to get out of the fog?
After a reader commented how she needed to "stay strong" for her children, I realized I needed to write a post that explored this phrase and clarify just what it means to stay strong after a narcissistic relationship.
Do you hold back things you want to say to the Narcissist out of fear of a reaction? Do you notice that when you do say anything that your words are twisted around? Do you choose your words carefully? Do you avoid discussing certain topics in order not to offend the Narc? Do you do what you can to avoid conflict with the Narc at all costs?
Going no contact is exactly what is implied - no contact. It's a phrase used by Narcissistic Abuse survivors when reclaiming their life, their power and their voice. No contact means no phone calls, no texting, no emails. Nothing. Not even leaving a note on the windshield of their car. No contact by proxy (having someone else contact the Narc). No cyberstalking. No peeking at their Facebook page.
