narcissist quoteHey there, you got a minute? Let me ask you a few quick questions.

You don’t have to share the answers with me (though I’d love it if you would – shoot me an email if you want to keep it between us). 

But mostly, I want you to answer these questions for yourself. Ready? Take a deep breath, this is serious stuff, friend. 

Ask yourself:

  1. Do you feel like you’re not good enough? 
  2. Always feel like someone else’s needs are more important than your own?
  3. Does it sometimes feel like you’re not really a “REAL” person?
  4. Does someone in your life make you feel crazy?
  5. Do you sometimes doubt your own abilities? 
  6. How about your own sanity – do you question it? 
  7. 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 relationship with a narcissist.

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 a 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’s Kindle store. Here’s what you need to know.

One Response to Toxic Relationship With a Narcissist? How to Stop Feeling ‘Dead Inside’

  1. If you can tell me where there are support groups to meet women and men who have been in relationships with malignant narcissists but have gone no contact and are recovering, and know of any therapist here in asheville , NC 28804 Please let me know. I have been trying to find help for over 3 years, it seems there is no support or help. I know there are groups on the internet, but I would like to speak with them in person, and you could also give me the sites on the internet that I may join. I would definately apprecite that, my name is Brittnee
