Narcissists can be infuriating, to say the very least – and if you’re stuck in any sort of relationship with one, you’ll go through a myriad of emotions on a regular basis – a toxic relationship is often a roller-coaster ride of emotional highs and lows.
Today’s video is dedicated to one of my YouTube viewers who sent me an email that explained that she was feeling a lot of rage at a certain narcissistic person she is forced to deal with on a regular basis.
In this video, I’ll explain not only the WHY of your (totally justified!) anger, but also some physical conditions that might increase your own rage and how to overcome them – plus personal tips on how I got through my own tough times during my own narcissistic abuse.
If you feel angry more often than you’d like, you’re probably looking for a good way to manage it. As with most everything, your ability to manage your anger has to begin with understanding it. So let’s start with this one.
The first thing you need to know is that you’re not weird or horrible – anger is a normal human reaction to things like injustice, poor treatment of yourself and others and a whole host of other issues and situations.
I’ll explain it in detail, top to bottom, in this video.
