My Most Hated YouTube Video, Explained: Narcissistic Abuse Recovery

Written by Angela Atkinson

In this episode of Go Ask Angie, I’m answering the following questions from my YouTube community “off-the-cuff”:

  • YouTuber shane lockeheart asked:
    umm seems a bit odd most all comments of narcissistic people are made in point of view if it’s always the guy???
  • YouTuber Jane Gore asked:
    I don’t want to turn into a narcissist by acting like a narcissist thank you.
    That’s just stupid advice.
    It maybe the only way to survive if you have to live with one but it’s soul destroying at the same time.
    It’s a torturous position to be in but to follow your advice is suppressing your own true feelings and emotions to such an extent that you become dangerously close to becoming a narc yourself.
  • YouTuber Nahyun Lee asked
    What is the difference in you and the narcissist if you do these things. These exact things are what they are always doing. Everything is a game to them.
  • YouTuber Danny Rubens said:
    i m sorry i hate to read
  • YouTuber Nickolai Siegfried asked:
    could you please stop saying “he” when referring to a narc. i was emotionally abused by a nasty female narc and would appreciate if you could use “them or their” when referring to these evil people. thanks

And a few others.

The majority of these comments are on this video:

In the Go Ask Angie series, I respond “off the cuff” to questions, comments and concerns sent to me by my YouTube viewers, readers from my site and those who reach out in other ways, such as by email.
