I am joined my spiritual mentor and energy healer Jacqui McGinn. We talk about narcissistic abuse and focus especially on belief, disbelief, and mindset.
Don’t be fooled, people who create drama, and then portray themselves as the victim are playing games. They are manipulating you.
Escaping an abusive situation is difficult, if not full on dangerous. Preparing your escape will make you more likely to get out and stay out. Here is some advice to consider while getting ready.
One way I like to reflect on my healing journey is to look back over my own writing. It gives me glimpses of how far I’ve come.
The short-coming isn’t in the emotional pain you feel. The short-coming is in our collective inability to understand that there is no time-line for healing.
Interacting with toxic people is a little like playing Emotional Russian Roulette. By that I mean that you never know which version of the person will be on the other side of the door.
It is very common for people who are unable to manage their own emotions healthily, to blame other people for the things that go on in their lives.
Let me say this about that turn of phrase ‘the right to see their grandchild’. I think that, when they chose to be abusive to you, they forfeited any rights to your children.
Toxic people and abusers are experts on jealousy. They cannot bear the thought of anyone having something they don’t have, or experiencing something they are not experiencing.
Just like their present, a toxic person has a drama-fueled past. Although I know this about my mother, I have no idea at the actual history.
