Are you dealing with narcissists and toxic relationships? I've got something for you.
Are you tired of feeling like you're not good enough? Do you wish that someone in your life would just put your feelings first, for once? Or maybe just to consider you at all?
Tired of being told you're the crazy one as you deal with mind games at home or work? You might just be involved with a narcissist.
Narcissists are abusers – but they don’t usually beat their victims physically. No, narcissists are sneaky - they're much more insidious in their form of abuse.
When you think of someone in an abusive relationship, you think of someone who is getting beaten and battered on a regular basis, right? But while domestic violence is heartbreaking and unacceptable, there’s another form of abuse that might be even more dangerous.
But even though you can’t always see physical evidence of abuse, the kind of overwhelming, all-consuming emotional abuse inflicted on the victims of narcissists is a form of aggression that should also be recognized.
The soul-crushing kind of abuse that is inflicted on the people who love a narcissist might not be visible to the naked eye, but it can leave devastating emotional scars that never go away. Most people have no idea how much the “sources” of narcissistic supply suffer in their relationships – and yet when these victims speak up, people often mistake them for whiners and dismiss their pain.
This, of course, leaves them confused and blaming themselves for everything that is wrong in their lives.
This book offers a in-depth guide to surviving and thriving during and after life with a narcissist, in whatever degree necessary for your life. You'll learn to recognize narcissism in those around you, plus how to identify and stop typical manipulation techniques, such as gaslighting, in their tracks.
Find out how to start focusing on what you want and need first, and learn how to stop feeling like you're not good enough. You'll find out how to choose your new reality and sharpen your skills for coping with anxiety and stress.
How do you know if you’re in a relationship with a narcissist?
Ask yourself: is there someone in your life always puts their own feelings, needs and wants ahead of yours – someone who never seems bothered to ask how you feel about anything?

This book doesn’t ask you to do anything you’re not ready to do, and it’s not going to tell you to end the relationship no matter what. Instead, it offers a detailed blueprint on various options you have to deal with the toxic relationships in your life and helps you to learn how to take the upper hand with narcissists and come out on top.
