True Narcissistic Abuse Survivor Stories

The Insecure Narcissist: Example

I didn’t believe that narcissists were insecure either until I met this woman. When the woman copied my idea and claimed it as her own, I knew that she wasn’t as amazing as she’d seemed..in fact, all I could see was that she’d been lying the whole time and had used me for her own devices. She was in fact very insecure.

She Had an Affair With a Married Narcissist

My narcissist was a married lover. We met when he was my boss working with him for two years before he moved away. With this narcissist, everything we did, whether it be physical or when we were just fantasizing via email, was totally pedophile-ish and totally disgusting but I will say this: Looking back 16 years later, I now see the signs and wish I could’ve told myself, “Stop! Don’t do it! He’s an a-hole!” And everyone I worked with warned me that my boss wasn’t a good guy. I was young, dumb and so in love with that man.

103 Things We Would Say to Our Inner Child If We Could

103 Things We Would Say to Our Inner Child If We Could

Narcissistic abuse really does a number on your inner child, and most people who go through a toxic relationship that involves a narcissist find they have a lot of inner child healing to do during their narcissistic abuse recovery. We talk often about the inner child in the narcissistic abuse recovery community, but do you really know what it means? On a very basic level, according to psychologists, the “inner child” is simply that part of you that never grows up. It is your inner childlike aspect. It exists within you and seems to only recognize those things you learned as a child before you hit puberty.
