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.
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.
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.’
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 self-reflection on how we can empower ourselves in the face of this.
