Is your relationship toxic?
Hey there, you got a minute? Let me ask you a few quick questions. You don’t have to share the answers with me. Mostly, I want you to answer these questions for yourself. Ready? Take a deep breath, this is serious stuff, friend.
- Do you feel like you’re not good enough?
- Always feel like someone else’s needs are more important than your own?
- Does it sometimes feel like you’re not really a “REAL” person?
- Does someone in your life make you feel crazy?
- Do you sometimes doubt your own abilities?
- How about your own sanity – do you question it?
- Ever (sort of) joke that you’re “dead inside” and that nothing bothers you?
If you answered yes to any of the questions listed here, you might be in a toxic relationship with a narcissist.
Narcissistic Abuse in Toxic Relationships Devastates You
Just like the psychological and emotional injuries that are a result of being in a toxic relationship with a narcissist, you can’t tell that a person is stuck in a narcissistic relationship unless you happen to be a personal witness to the behavior of the narcissist. You can’t always see the scars of a victim of narcissism.
Narcissism and narcissistic personality disorder can wreak havoc on the lives of anyone involved with the people affected by these psychological conditions.
Whether you’re a family member, friend, or romantic partner, becoming a “narcissistic extension” leads to your becoming the primary source of narcissistic supply.
I’ve got something to share with you. As someone who has survived and thrived despite experiences I wrote a book that offers insight and real, actionable steps for overcoming toxic love and narcissism in your relationship, and today through April 30, 2015, I’m offering it for free on Amazon.com’s Kindle store. Here’s what you need to know.
Ever feel like you’re dead inside? Many victims of narcissistic abuse report that they feel numb and emotionless – dead inside.
This book offers an in-depth guide to surviving and thriving during and after living 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.
Plus: You’ll get two supplemental appendixes, including one that offers a series of Affirmations & Reflections to help reinforce the lessons learned, plus a series of letters and personal advice on narcissism and much more.
