Aftermath of Narcissistic, Mental Abuse

πŸ’œ

If you grew up in an abusive household, then you were desensitized to abuse. You were conditioned that abuse is part of your life, and you may not even recognize milder forms of abuse than what you experienced as a child.

πŸ’œ

When I say “milder”… I don’t actually feel that way. Society has conditioned us that certain kinds of abuse are not really abuse. Plus, the covert tactics of abuse often cannot be seen or proven.

πŸ’œ

You have probably had toxic people sneak across your boundaries, and permeate the cracks in your borders, many times. You may have some clear boundaries, or none at all.

πŸ’œ

Children in emotionally healthy families are taught about personal boundaries. They has someone to teach them what to do when someone was abusing them, or taking advantage of them. If you has one or both parents that were conditioning you that your feelings don’t matter, then you were not given the proper “software” for your brain.

πŸ’œ

Having your self esteem crushed down as a child /teenager, is detrimental. It has long lasting effects on the subconscious.

πŸ’œ

As an adult, you now need to learn the skills for survival that you should have been taught as a child. You need the support to build your self esteem back up.

Being surrounded regularly by people who minimize you, is the worst thing that can happen for your self esteem. If you continue to draw toxic people towards you, then you will never realize a sense of self.

πŸ’œ

Your identity is being controlled by others. They are not treating you this was because you deserve it. That is just a gaslighting tactic they use to make you stay around them.

πŸ’œ

No, people don’t mistreat you because there is something innately wrong with you. In fact most codependents and Β empaths are compassionate, creative, intelligent people.

πŸ’œ

Of course, the narcissists are not creative or empathic. They are rarely as intelligent as they will tell you they are. In fact, you should put up a red flag in your mind, anytime you hear someone constantly, and repeatedly telling you how intelligent they are….how successful they are…how much people like them….how people always do what they say….or how much of a “good person” they are.

πŸ’œ

Anyone can say those things. How someone describes themselves should be compared to their behavior and actions. It is not a normal behavior for someone to spout about their intelligence…etc…regularly.

πŸ’œ

If you have C-PTSD from on-going emotional / mental abuse growing up, then you will be targeted by narcissists. That pattern will continue, as you re-play the events and situations of your childhood….subconsciously trying to reslove the un-resolveable.

πŸ’œ

You cannot change these kinds of people. Their treatment of you has probably caused you depression, PTSD, an anxiety disorder….and possibly suicidal thoughts …..All of which you may feel is due to some kind of mental illness in you.

πŸ’œ

It is all part of their game. They intentionally cause you to be emotionally and mentally unstable.

πŸ’œ

Then they make you believe that you need them. You are helpless…according to their “supposed” opinion of you . ….and you are convinced by them that you cannot possibly navigate the big bad world without them.

πŸ’œ

In the mean time, the “Big Bad World” is either living in your home, bossing you around at work, or undermining any efforts you make towards being independent and autonomous.

πŸ’œ

If you are an adult with a living narcissistic parent, they are probably still disrespecting you, and treating you like a child….and not in a good way. (I don’t treat my children this way)

πŸ’•

You need to re-wire the false beliefs that were programmed into your brain. You can Get Coaching, to help you with that.

πŸ’•

You need to evaluate each of your relationships, and see whatever truths that you have been brainwashed not to see. You can Get Coaching for that too.

πŸ’•

You need to be validated for all the abuse and gaslighting. You guessed it….you can Get Coaching for that one too !

πŸ’•

Do you need a compassionate person to listen to you…and really hear you? You can Break the Chains that hold you back from really blossoming in the world.

πŸ’•

Isn’t it time that these toxic people stopped using us? Isn’t it time for their cruel tactics to have some light shed on them?

πŸ’•

Why should we continue to bow down to their fear tactics…or even care what they think about us? The opinion of a toxic person, about Who You Are, does not count at all.

πŸ’•

Why?

πŸ’•

Because malignant narcissists constantly lie. They twist the truth around, and spin things in their favor….ALL THE TIME.

πŸ’œ

We are NOT subservient to them. Their version of the truth is always twisted. Therefore, their opinion about you is not valid.

πŸ’•

Wouldn’t you like to get to discover the Real You? Unravel the lies from the truth. Counter the effects of the gaslighting on your mind.

πŸ’œ

You need to feel calmer and more confident. You can Get CoachingΒ  for that.

πŸ’œ

You need to be heard, and to realize the beauty within you. That beauty that has been crushed and bruised.

πŸ’•

You can get your situation validated. You can be heard. You can get coaching for dealing with the aftermath of narcissistic abuse.

πŸ’•

Don’t let wondering about the cost stop you from calling to get coaching.

πŸ’œ

I work with anyone who is a good match for coaching with me. If I feel I can help you, then I will work with you to individualize a plan.

      Thank you for reading. I agree that it is necessary to shed light on the psychopaths and narcissists. It is too easy for them to blend in, because people are not taught about them. The general public just thinks that psychopaths are murderers and criminals behind bars.

      The damage done to children and teenagers by narcissistic parents is immense.
