This is your brain on narcissistic abuse. This is Your Brain on Narcissistic Abuse: Cognitive Dissonance, Trauma Bonding & Healing in Recovery – Here’s the link for your free tools.

Did you know that your brain kind of betrays you in narcissistic relationships? It’s true!

The chemicals oxytocin, which encourages bonding, endogenous opioids – responsible for pleasure, pain, withdrawal, dependence; corticotropin-releasing factor which involves withdrawal, and stress; and dopamine which is connected to craving, seeking, wanting the narcissist back, even when they’ve caused you extreme emotional stress and pain. Toxic relationships and narcissistic abuse lead your neurochemistry to fall into dysregulated states, which makes it really hard to leave a narcissist and even harder to finally get over a toxic relationship. In this video, I’ll fill you in on the science and the logic of it all, plus how it affects you directly.

  1. Angie…
    Thank you for the explanation of why I feel so out of control.
    The best thing about your videos is that you answer so many questions as to why I am in these shoes with this Narc. Why I put up with it. I appreciate your help.
