Narcissistic rage and narcissistic injury are two peas in a really nasty pod.

While raging narcissists often claim that their raging behavior is related to stress, the opposite is true.

Narcissistic rage is triggered usually by some perceived insult, criticism or disagreement that results in a narcissistic injury.

In this video, I’ll teach you how to first identify and understand narcissistic rage and narcissistic injury, and then what you can do if you have to deal with it.

One Response to Understanding Narcissistic Rage and Narcissistic Injury (Video)

  1. The first rage I experienced with N happened during an auto trip from Maine to NY (6-7 hour drive). I was literally trapped in the car driving while being pummeled with the full range of invective only an N can dish out. This was 6 years ago and was the first rage I experienced. I was overwhelmed. At times I feared she’d grab the wheel and cause an accident. I knew nothing about narcissism at that point but instinct said just keep quiet and drive! There were many crazy incidents along the way. Once after stopping for gas, five minutes later she insisted I forgot to stop for gas! She also grabbed the navigator off the dash claiming it was set for a distant place and that I was kidnapping her! All the while I was hearing gas lighting, accusations against me and literally all the things we know narcissists hurl when raging. I was literally blown away by the ridiculous nature of it all. I’ve also noticed that N raged a lot on the phone (we did not live together) where she felt safe doing so. I think in all cases the best thing to do is disengage i.e. leave, hang up the phone or otherwise distance yourself. I’m out of the relationship now but experienced 6 years of narcissistic hell. Best advice overall to anyone? Get out!
