Narcissistic Personality 

Narcissistic personalities seem to be on the rise .... or is this term branded about toward any one who behaves unkindly toward us?


First up there are many kinds of personality disorders and they are just that 'dis ordered' usually from unacknowledged relationship trauma what we call 'relational trauma'. What does this mean? Well key relationships, particularly the ones with have as children with parents, siblings, authority figures such as teachers all inpact our 'personal reality', as well as our brains, as neuro science now shows.



In truth we can all have narcissitc traits, where our earliest needs have gone unmet and therefore we lash out from our shadow or dark sides. Obviously we have a big problem when we are on the receiving end of this sort of unacceptable behaviour from adults or those who should be taking care of us.


Not only that but usually over empathic unnurtured adult children get in relationships with unnurtured adult children with strong narcissistic traits, setting up a cycle of abuse.


We can feel lost, alone, confused, exhausted from trying so hard, still blamed and even psyically, emotionaly, mentally or spiritually in danger, needing help and believing no one will believe us.  Even more we are usually terrified things will get worse, we will have no protection and there is no hope.


Dealing with narcissistic personalities is no walk in the park, more like a walk in jurassic park. No matter what they tell you, this behaviour is not ok, acceptable nor do you deserve it. You deserve respect and love, you always have.


Recovery from this sort of abuse is a long ardous unfair journey. Usually the person causing the difficulty will not admit their part authentically and make changes so needed. its usually down to the trampled down party to seek help for themselves, learning to put in boundaries, gain confidence and within themselves rise again.


If you are in any abusive relationship, I would encourage you to reach out confidentially. Someone trustworthy just knowing can do wonders to help not feel so alone. The space between two people can be a powerful place of inner transformation.
