I love myself enough to break this cycle!
If you have been in a relationship with a narcissist you've probably heard it many times - "You'll never find someone like me again!" In all honesty, isn't that the point? But for most of us, we DO find someone like this again. We continue the cycle of getting into abusive, narcissistic relationships. This cycle isn't just about romantic relationships although many are. Narcissist abuse can be from friends, family, co-workers and bosses. For some reason or another, we attract them into our life. We are left feeling empty, isolated and worthless. The psychological termoil cannot be measured because the wounds are placed where the human eye cannot see. The gas lighting and emotional trauma make you question reality on a moment by moment basis. (Also check out the 5 Signs of a Narcissist page here.)
Am I crazy?
No, you are not crazy at all. You were just manipulated by someone who took advantage of your love. The manipulation and abuse starts in subtle ways which are passed off as jokes. "You are being too sensitive. Lighten up!" Conversations which were once simple have you questioning your sanity as you are told repeatedly comments were never made or incidents never happened. You are hoping you can change them by doing more, being more, or changing into whatever they want you to be. In this process, the isolation begins. Lies are told about your mental state and how "you need help". They get you involved with drugs, medications, alcohol or all of the above.
I remember my story as if it was yesterday. This is how I was feeling by the time I left.
"I allowed her into a deeply, intimate space and was violated emotionally, physically and sexually. She even left marks on my body in the process but somehow managed to make me feel as if I was crazy or it was all justified. I often cried after and thought to myself how in the hell did you get here??? How did you let this all happen?"
