Did you know that the holidays make narcissists more likely than ever to try to suck you back into the relationship? It’s true! In this video, I’ll explain exactly why Thanksgiving and other holidays incite a narcissist to try to hoover you back in, and I’ll fill you in on exactly what you can do to avoid it.

It’s always hard to deal with a narcissist, whether you’re still in the toxic relationship or you’ve recently left it. But due to the narc’s behaviors and patterns, there are times when we find ourselves feeling weak, almost powerless to resist their charms – even when we KNOW BETTER.

The “hoovering” technique was named after the famous vacuum cleaner company, and it’s one of many common manipulation tactics employed by abusive, toxic narcissists.

This is when a narcissist sort of “sucks” his victim back into the relationship, or some version of it. It often begins innocently enough, sort of subtly, but it always happens with one target – to regain control.
