From Being Trapped To Your Personal Freedom – Part 2

Written by Melanie Tonia Evans
  This week’s article is about responding to people’s trapped situations and emotions. Please, let me say my heart goes out to all of you. The loss, depression, anxiety and powerlessness that is symptomatic of being narcissistically abused is awful. The real deal for me to help you is for me to be a generator of the solutions. And this means reaching deep inside these issues, and bringing forth the truth that will get you into your power center. It means accessing the truth that will set you free. This is where my work differs, because I know that just focusing on the issues ... read more →

From Being Trapped To Your Personal Freedom – Part 1

Written by Melanie Tonia Evans
  Today I am writing this article in the most gorgeous cliff top restaurant in Phuket. The view is spectacular, the breeze is cooling, music is playing and I can hear the sea. I have just eaten a wonderful exotic Thai seafood and herb salad. Not so many years ago, being this way in the world felt impossible to me – like I could never, ever feel safe enough, confident enough or powerful enough to visit different countries on my own. You can follow my trip around South East Asia on my Facebook page. No matter what the outside world used to see “about me” ... read more →

Why Do Bad Things Happen To Good People?

Written by Melanie Tonia Evans
  This article is one that has been inspired as a result of a comment that a lady named Jean posted on my latest blog article … “‘Am I carrying enough darkness (fear) regarding my own security and survival that I need to learn the lesson of NOT selling my soul out to abuse to try to survive?’ FEAR = Darkness…here I thought I was a 'lightworker type.' Getting it!” Jean’s comment inspired me to realise how so many “lightworkers” (good people) are in deep confusion as to why “bad” things happen to them. It is so easy to agonise over “Why do bad things happen ... read more →

The Narcissist in the Workplace

Written by Melanie Tonia Evans
Many people in the community have requested an article regarding narcissism in the workplace. Finally, I have enough of the backlog out of the way of articles that I wanted to write to be able to focus on this one. As with family of origin narcissism, narcissism in the workplace is not really my area of expertise. But like with all narcissistic abuse – and this is how I will present the article – it is helpful to understand the dynamics of what is really going on in the first instance, and then accepting that our True Power always lies in the ... read more →

Thriving After Narcissistic Abuse Story #18 Marla

Written by Melanie Tonia Evans
This Thriver story is one that I believe many people will be able to relate to.Beliefs can be powerful. Doing the right thing can be what we are “trained” to do. Many people believed “marriage is for life” … but when we believe that we are supposed to suffer in silence, put on a face to the world, and continue to just “carry one” with our families, our community,  or our church, is this healthy?Does God really want us to stick it out? Or do we have permission to change our lives dramatically – such as leave a spouse – in order to be happy?During this ... read more →

This show is a very special interview with my dear friend Eric Casaccio - who is the writer, director and co-producer of the short film - "Narcissist”.

Hoovering – How The Narcissist Tricks You Into Breaking No Contact

Written by Melanie Tonia Evans
“Hoovering” is the term used to describe a narcissist trying to re-connect with you after a time of separation. Often, this separation occurs after a time of silence between you and the narcissist. The hoovering generally happens when you are not making contact, and at times when you are trying to get on with your life. If you are the one trying to contact and make-up, it is more likely that the narcissist will devalue and discard you. If this is not the case, it is because the narcissist still wants something from you – possessions, money, status, contacts or sex because ... read more →

10 Ways We Can Self-Avoid

Written by Melanie Tonia Evans
When we are on a journey of healing and resurrection, the most important component is “self-partnering.” This is in dire contrast to “self-avoidance,” or what is also known as “self-abandonment.” Many of us had no idea we were “self-avoiding” because we just thought we were doing our best to get on with life. For many people life itself can be all-consuming. You may feel like it is a daily struggle to cope – or even just survive. For so many people, a need for self-partnering only happens when life brings us to our knees when we simply can’t continue on with “business as ... read more →
