  Narcissistic parents affect children profoundly. Horribly … There are many people, maybe you, who suffered parenting from a mother and/or father who was entitled, self-absorbed, demanding and no matter what you did it was never good enough. Or maybe this parent was simply too busy or entrenched in their own stuff to be available emotionally for you. Of course, parents do the best they can with the resources they have … yet narcissistic parenting takes abuse to another level. Those affected by a narcissistic caretaker, struggle to develop into adults feeling whole, capable, emotionally solid and able to generate their own life healthily – because of not being able to establish their own values, needs, voice or rights.

  I know what it’s like (and you might too) to FINALLY hear what you needed to give a narcissist another chance. Yet … EVERY time we do, our stomach sinks, we start feeling uneasy and before long, we can’t believe what we signed up for. Things haven’t changed! He or she is not acting better and not only are we back at square one, we are also even more traumatised, shattered and hooked in than we were before. You might have heard of the term ‘hoover’.

  In my opinion, the BIGGEST thing that stops people from healing the Thriver Way is the NORMAL terror of going inside to meet their wounds. Why wouldn’t you be terrified of doing this? Emotional pain hurts … it can feel overwhelming, insurmountable and like it will never end … and if you DO go into it that you possible WON’T be able to function. We have been encouraged, all our life, to avoid our emotional pain at all costs. However, by the time we have experienced narcissistic abuse, does this work? (more…)

  Narcissists are NASTY people. Yes, absolutely they can be delightful … But, when they lash out ... all bets are off. No matter what you are doing they find fault; the ways to criticize you, put you down, bring up your most painful wound and throw it in your face, go over again what you seemingly did to them that can never be forgiven … and the list goes on and on. All of which makes you doubt yourself and seriously question your own integrity, intentions, and identity. (more…)

  Narcissists know how to target, charm and ensnare people. Soooo many of us, despite being smart, capable and even highly successful people in so many areas of our lives, were taken in. And … so many of us shook our heads, threw our hands up into the air and exclaimed – “WHY is this happening to me?!” I was there, and I know you, more than likely, have been as well. (more…)

  If you have ever tried to get closure with a narcissist, you know exactly what I am talking about. Trying to get a ‘sorry’ is ridiculously impossible ... Remorse is not forthcoming ... and, Making amends is unheard of. Unless of course, the narcissist has no other option other than to appear accountable (for their own agenda). (more…)

  I know you may be baffled, stunned and devastated by the narcissist’s relentless quest to keep hurting you. Soooo many people, just like you and me, have experienced precisely this ... every time you try to get up and on with your life BAM!, the narcissist strikes you down again. This could be in the form of malicious criticism and control tactics. Or, if you have already left a narcissist, this could be with the use of authorities, or smearing you to your workplace, family and friends ... or with incessant stalking, accusations and the constant baiting of you.
