Toxic Relationship Tools: Narcissism and Gaslighting Resources (Free This Weekend Only!)
For those dealing with narcissists and toxic relationships, we've got two special gifts - both are free this weekend.
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?
In these pages, Author and Certified Life Coach Angela Atkinson, herself a survivor of narcissistic relationships, offers insight from both personal experience and professional understanding. In addition to giving you tips and tools to understand and handle the toxic people in your life, Atkinson shares practical insight into the workings of a narcissistic mind and serves up proven techniques for handling encounters with your narcissists. Plus, you’ll learn how to redefine yourself as an individual and start on the path of rediscovering yourself and your own identity.
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.
And a brand new release:
Are You Being Gaslighted?
You’re at a party and you notice your husband getting a bit too close to another woman. After the party, you confront him. He tells you to stop being so insecure and controlling; that he’s his own man and if you don’t like it, you shouldn’t have acted like that in the first place. After arguing all night, you end up begging for forgiveness and apologize for the trouble.
Maybe it’s your mom - she’s picking on you like it’s a sport. She’s worried about what you’re wearing, what you’re eating - who you’re hanging out with - but it’s unhealthy. Instead of fighting back, you just suck it up and take it - maybe you’re too sensitive, or perhaps you really are crazy after all. Who can’t take a bit of criticism, anyway?
Or it’s your boss, who told you you had his support on your latest project, only to backpedal when it’s time to present it to the team. Suddenly, he criticizes you for your poor choices and he’s jumnped ship - but when you talk to him later, he tells you it was wrong from the beginning and you need to be more careful in the future. You find yourself wondering if your judgment might really be flawed, after all.
Maybe this stuff doesn’t happen in your life, but for many people, it’s an everyday reality. If you think it could never be you, think again! Some of the most intelligent and capable people are living in painfully toxic relationships with narcissists, and they’re plagued by regular bouts of gaslighting, an insidious form of emotional abuse and manipulation that can be crueler than more obvious forms of abuse because it sort of sneaks up on you.
Because of its insidious nature, gaslighting is one form of emotional abuse that is hard to recognize and even more challenging to break free from. Part of that is because the narcissist exploits one of our greatest fears - the fear of being alone.
