You can’t find the narcissist because a picture doesn’t tell the whole story. . . This is super accurate. When you encounter a narcissist ... you never truly get to see them outside of the picture they offer. This is why so much of the world will be fooled of the narcissist’s true colors. . . . #narcissist #narcissisticabuse #narcissisticabusesurvivor #narcissism #narcissisticmother #narcissisticfather #narcissisticparent #narcissisticpersonalitydisorder #narcissistic #narcissisticrecovery #narcissists #narcissistfree #narcissistfreenow #emotionalabuse #toxicrelationships #healing #verbalabuse #endabuse #unitedinsilence #survivorstrong #healingfromabuse #healingtrauma #cptsd #ptsdrecovery #instadaily #quoteoftheday #quotes #instagood

➡️I spent too much time in a relationship that I didn't belong in. Not only was he the wrong one for me, but he tore me down to the point where I doubted myself constantly. I remember being told things like... "You have trust issues" ✔️❌ "You'll never be able to trust anyone" ✔️❌ "Any guy you are ever with will never be able to deal with you, you will accuse him too" ✔️❌ "You have issues that aren't because of me, you need to figure out why you have these trust insecurities" ✔️❌ Whenever I would accuse him of cheating, mind you I accused because I would see texts in his phone literally saying he was sleeping with other women. But it was always me. I read it wrong, it was a joke, it was set up because he knew I still didn't trust him, ECT. In reality though he was cheating. I am in a new relationship, with a man whom I don't ever think for a second he's cheating on me. A guy who the other night took my phone to play word cookies and I said well then I'm taking yours to listen to Pandora while I shower. A man who I trust with all my heart that he'll never cheat on me, I trust him. I am able to trust, the right man. 💞💞💞 If you feel something is wrong, something is probably wrong. If you speak your mind and your partner turns it around on you then HE is the problem. Not you. Move on, get out, run because that type of relationship will mentally destroy you. #narcissist #narcissisticabusesurvivor #gaslighting #gaslightingawareness #cheatingnarcissist #beinggaslighted
When somebody asks ‘where you’ve been’ all of their life, or effortlessly refers to you as the ‘love of their life,’ then chances are they are full of shit. Real love, I know now, is built towards & earned. Love at first sight is a myth. And if someone of interest tries to pressure that notion of an instant connection in your brain, RUN. Or experience what I (and many others) have endured. . . . . . . #funeralofwords #poetsofinstagram #poetrycommunity #instapoet #instapoetry #instawriters #spokenword #words #poetrycommunityofinstagram #poet #poetry #writersofinstagram #writing #writinglife #literature #reading #poetscorner #poetryofig #poetrygram #poetrylife #poetryofinstagram #poetsofig #writingcommunity #writerscommunity #amwriting #selfreflection #feelings #narcissisticabuse #lookoutforyourself #narcissisticabusesurvivor
Just because someone “loved you in their own way” does not excuse abusive behavior. So many people outside an abusive situation can make excuses for an abuser, but it does not make an abuser’s attempts to love worthy. We can recognize someone’s abuse and their good qualities in one breath, but make no mistake: an abuser’s good qualities are not worth guilt tripping ourselves into subjecting ourselves to more abuse. #narcissisticabusesurvivor #narcissisticabuse #narcissisticmother #narcissisticparent #narcissist #narcissism #recovery #trauma #healing #selflove #letgoofshame #noshame #noguilt
Trauma survivors typically have a sensitive nervous system which can easily get triggered to switch into a “fight/flight” mode. One challenging project at work or a disturbing personal situation and we become susceptible to inflammation related chronic illnesses caused from a prolonged arousal of the “fight/flight” mode. Establishing a daily routine to train and regulate the nervous system to switch back to a “calm” state is extremely important for the continued smooth functioning of the body’s natural restoration and healing process.

These are just two examples, but they are very common ones. Mind games and gaslighting are two main components to narcissistic abuse. They will make the victim believe that the victim is the problem, and in turn, the victim will begin to actually shut down and lose self confidence. One of the reasons why victims lose this self-esteem is BECAUSE they believe they’re the problem. They are full of guilt and shame—two things a narcissist will never feel or admit to. So you tell me: how can you be the narcissist if you are capable of such feelings? • • • • • • • • • • #narcissist #sociopath #psychologicalabuse #divorce #gaslighting #unitedinsilence #abuserscovery #anxiety #depression #awareness #emotionalabuse #narcissisticabuse #dv #liar #domesticviolence #fighter #empath #fakelove #metoo #psychopathfree #narcissisticmother #narcissisticfather #narcissisticabusesurvivor #traumabonding #nocontact #toxicrelationships #healingfromabuse #survivorstrong
EXACTLY THAT LADIES WE GOTTA DO BETTER 😂
If you’re asking yourself if you’re a narcissist, you’re not. If you’re seeking to heal from the pain, you’re not a narcissist. If you can empathize with others, you’re not a narcissist. - You are also not a victim if you are doing the work to evolve from the abuse. You’re a survivor with a warrior spirit. Do not fall to the victim mentality. You have the power to rise. 🖤 - #narcissist #narcissisticabuse #narcissism #triangulation #hoovering #narcissisticpersonalitydisorder #narcissistrecovery #narcissisticabusesurvivor #narcissistsurvivor #domesticabuse #domesticabusesurvivor #domesticabuseawareness #toxicpeople #toxicrelationships #gaslighting #gaslightingawareness #crazymaking #lovebombing #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #selfcare #trauma #healing #psychopath #psychopathfree
You have to accept that Narcissists can’t - and won’t - change. No matter how hard you try to persuade them that they could be better versions of themselves. You don’t have a magic want and it won’t happen. Double tap if you have come to the same conclusion. . . . . . #narcissisticabuse #narcissisticabusesurvivor #narcissists #narcism #narcabuse #manchild #entitled #healingfromabuse #anniekaszina #youdeservebetter #codependent #toxicpeople #mentalabuse #psychologicalabuse #narcopath
accurate 💙 the only place we exist 24/7 is in our own bodies, making the impact of #invisibleillness even more insidious when things go haywire with no explanation [🎨 + 🖋 by @embodyarttherapy ] ・・・ Our bodies absorb trauma and store it. Unhealed trauma, that is trapped in the body, manifests in multiple ways such as: addiction, body image problems, aggression, compulsive lying, impusivity, negative self talk, self harm, social withdrawal, anxiety, depression and so on. . Our bodies need to process and release the energy trapped inside after trauma in a safe therapeutic environment. Otherwise we will be likely to continue repeating unhealthy coping mechanisms that cause our health, relationships and wellbeing harm, and gets in the way of opportunities to flourish. . Unhealthy coping mechanisms, for example drug use or self harm, work for a very short amount of time to block the experience of painful trauma energy trapped in the body, however research shows that this way of coping always ends up maintaining and worsening the pain we feel in the long run. .

Found this on a link in a narc abuse survivor support group and it was a great read. I'll put some snippets in over the coming days. All this time I let him do drugs and drink himself to death I felt it was my own fault for putting up with it.... Even his friends and family would say 'well you picked him'. Even one of my counsellors said I enabled his behaviour by not speaking up about it. I felt if I nagged him or raised my concerns about his spiralling addictions, he would flip out at me or come back with 'you knew I do this so why do you have a problem now? ' excuse. I'm not one to quit when things get tough so I chose to stay. So I kept quiet and let him emotionally abuse me when he got too drunk and high. Never again. . . .

If you are stuck in the dark... . Find your reason why, it can be building your dreams or working towards something. It can even be as simple as You wanting to finally be your true self all the time . #imhereforyou #dontgiveup #iknowitshard #iknowithurts #youareworthy
I have to keep reminding myself. #selfcare #selflove #recovery #narcissisticabusesurvivor
I know they feel like just words and you may think I have no idea about struggles.. . But with all the problems I had, I had the power to change it all once I was honest enough with Myself to take accountability for the toxic behavior that was mine . People can do horrible things to you and the people you love but you alone have the power to remain your true self or turn into a version of yourself that you don't like . Stay strong Warriors, stay true to You #GodSavedMe #seasonofchange #trueself #youhavethepower
📺 DIRTY JOHN In der Serie geht es um einen Heiratsschwindler, der sich zudem als Psychopath entpuppt. Vieles erinnert an die Geschichten, die unzählige Frauen erlebt haben, denn Narzissten haben immer eine Hidden Agenda. Sie wollen immer irgendeinen nutzen aus der anderen Person ziehen. Ob Geld, Kontakte, Sex, Macht, Besitztümer oder Ansehen. Haben sie was sie wollen, wechseln sie zum nächsten Opfer. Diese bereiten sie oft schon während der aktuellen Beziehung vor, oder führen mehrere Beziehungen gleichzeitig. Dirty John basiert übrigens auf einem wahren Fall. Egal welche Art von Aufklärung, jede ist gut und rückt das Thema in den Fokus. #dirtyjohn #netflix #psychopath #narzisst #heiratsschwindler #stalker #moron #narzissten #serie #narcissist #narcissisticabusesurvivor #narcissistfree #redflags #betrüger
Are you trying to change someone for the betterment of their lives, or because you know that if they remain the same you can’t be happy with them? 🌌 • Why do you want someone to be different? Is it a matter of supporting someone in THEIR process of change, or are the circumstances pointing to the need to terminate the relationship? (this is a big question, especially for folks with a codependent disposition)✌🏼 • Do you want them to change so that you don’t have to take responsibility for your wants and needs? Because if you truly acknowledged what it is that you needed, you would have to leave, or remain unhappy? 🌈 • Did you play the caretaker growing up? do you gain a sense of identity through “changing” or “fixing” others? 💙 • There is nothing inherently wrong with anyone. If I didn’t carry traits of codependency, my exe’s narcissism wouldn’t have affected me. There would have been no relationship whatsoever. He would have played out that dynamic with someone else, someone who was not me. (Although my heart goes out to the next girl, I’m past that stage in my life & fixing people is no longer attractive to me) ☀️ • Wanting desperately to change someone in effort to preserve a relationship is a symptom of codependency- albeit, a common symptom for ALL of us. Everyone has experienced meeting someone & “if only x, y and z were different, we would be a perfect match” lol 👁 • Let’s normalize this shit and have conversations about it. Let’s not accept codependency as a common way of relating in modern dating & let’s throw a wrench through the structure and rebuild it with greater awareness 🍦 • • • • • #love #coaching #tarot #selfcare #psychology #spirituality #codependency #abusesurvivor #higherconsciousness #codependentnomore #narcissisticabusesurvivor #narc #selfawareness #catharsis #goodvibes #forgiveness #recovery #lawofattraction #metaphysical #buddhism #relationships #selfesteem #toxicrelationships #healing #philadelphia #boundaries #wisdom #witchy #intuitivehealing #relationshipgoals
Encontré esta conversación del momento justo en el que estoy contando mi historia, 5 años atrás justo antes de año nuevo yo le decía que estaba cansada de la situación, el como siempre comenzando con su palabreo y manipulación emocional, con los “ tengo miedo” “ mis sentimientos son puros hacia ti “ . . Tengo todas las conversaciones con el, yo nunca borraba conversaciones con nadie, las dejaba en mi celular, pero luego las conversaciones con el las fui guardando en una carpeta aparte, seguro una parte de mi pensaba que algo no estaba bien y que por si acaso seria bueno tenerlas. No me equivoqué. Hoy 5 años después tengo TODO como pruebas, pruebas de su maltrato psicológico, de su enfermedad, de su manipulación, de su victimización, de sus insultos, de sus palabras de amor, de sus falsas promesas, de sus mentiras, TODO. No no estaba loca, estaba con un PSICOPATA NARCISISTA. Un psicopata integrado. . . . . #contactocero #dilenoalnarcisista #sisepuede #sobreviviendoalsociopata #iñakipuñuel #undiaalavez #pocoapoco #narcisista #libresdelnarcisista #contactocero #amorcero #amorceroamor #psicopatanarcisista #narcissisticabusesurvivor #sobreviviaunnarcisista #elamornoduele #adiosamor #relacionestoxicas #dejaratras #dejarir #sobrevivir #amor #locura #vivir #mihistoria . #contactocero #dilenoalnarcisista #sisepuede #sobreviviendoalsociopata r #undiaalavez #pocoapoco #narcisista #libresdelnarcisista #contactocero #amorcero #amorceroamor #psicopatanarcisista #narcissisticabusesurvivor #sobreviviaunnarcisista #elamornoduele #adiosamor #relacionestoxicas #dejaratras #dejarir #sobrevivir #amor #locura #vivir #mihistoriaconelnarcisista
Oh the shame! Deep, toxic shame. Shame was an emotion I wasn’t too familiar with. And it wasn’t a fun one to process. I suppose somewhere deep down I knew that an uncomfortable feeling called shame was eventually going to come to the surface and it would be very difficult to face. Perhaps that’s why I stayed a little bit longer than I should have. Why I didn’t want everyone else to be right. Why I wanted so badly to believe I was special - special enough to change a grown man’s unhealthy behavior and ingrained personality. Which in retrospect sounds egotistical and foolish. But maybe that’s what I was. Maybe I knew the truth all along but was too afraid to admit it and meet that uncomfortable, raw, real shame. 🤦🏼‍♀️ . If you’re stuck here, be kind to yourself. Like, so fucking kind. Practice self-compassion. You are facing a very real, very painful, very heavy feeling. Your willingness to face it and speak to it and learn from it, is honorable. Give yourself time with it. Give yourself time to forgive yourself. And until you do, keep your distance from anyone who makes you think, for a second, that they’re saying “I told you so” in their head. (Or worse, saying it out loud.) You don’t need any more shame projected onto you. You don’t deserve it. 💛🦋
She is the reason I've changed my world . I fought the fight of my life to keep her safe and bring her home with her family but after that fight was over I didn't live like I was a Victor . I lived like a scared victim, I had everything I wanted but wasn't happy or grateful . I lived my days scared and angry because I was scared, which made me 'less than' as a mom . We didn't have fun because I was constantly triggered, we couldn't even leave the house without the 100th clothing/hair check . I know about dark days Warriors but if He gave me the power to heal, I know you have it too #dontgiveup #keepgoing #darkdays #betterdays #grateful
Now, after years of untangling the intensity and complexity of my own mother wound .. I can confidently say that the power of women is absolutely fucking real. We have so much to share. We have so much to feel. Supporting and wanting to understand each other is a type of healing that I don't think anyone can properly describe. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We have so much more in common that we even are willing to realize. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This coming from me, a women who resisted females for a very long time. A women who has gone through it and back with dealing with judgement, gossip and shit talking. I'm sure you can relate. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ & I took this photo at the most recent LA Women's March and I was extremely inspired. These are high school girls of all different backgrounds, coming together to fight for women. Coming together and finding their voice. This is an example of how we shift generational trauma. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Not by isolating our pain and projecting our anger. but by leaning into what's going on for us and asking for help and support when we need it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ because, together, in our collective pain, in our collective suffering and ambitions, we can rise. and reach levels we never thought possible. I am living proof. x

MI MERITO ATTENZIONI PERCHÉ SONO TUTTO. Se si vuole, si ha tempo. Se non si ha tempo, in realtà non lo si vuole oppure si hanno altre priorità che interessano di più. Non permettete che vi mentano o che vi ingannino. Di fatto, ci sarà sempre uno spazio riservato ad una persona che si ha voglia di vedere, con cui si ha intenzione di parlare o di cui preoccuparsi: è la base dell’affetto e dell’amore. Aprite il più possibile gli occhi e se vi rendete conto di non ricevere il valore che meritate, non lo implorate: nessuno merita di elemosinare attenzione. Ricorda sempre che chi non ti cerca non sente la tua mancanza e chi non sente la tua mancanza non ti vuole bene. La vita decide chi far entrare nella tua vita, ma sei tu a decidere chi far restare. La verità fa male una volta sola e la bugia fa male per sempre. Per questo motivo, valorizza chi ti valorizza e non trattare come priorità chi ti tratta come un’opzione. Se qualcuno ti vuole nella sua vita, lascerà uno spazio per te senza che debba lottare per esso. Non restare mai con una persona che ti ignora costantemente. Scegliete bene chi volete nella vostra vita e, quando lo fate, dovete pensare a chi vi ha scelto nella sua: valorizzate chi vi dimostra di volervi al suo fianco. #stoptoxicrelationships #stopnarcisismo #stopemotionalabuse #stoppsychologicalviolence #gaslightingisabuse #narcissisticabusesurvivor #befree #loveyourself
