Sometimes we get so used to the abuse, that it becomes our normal. We don’t even realize what’s going on. Could balance and harmony be your new normal?
I revisit a blog post about parents passing in the aftermath of abuse. I wondered how I would respond. Well, a few months ago my father did pass away…
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.
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.
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.
Realizing the true extend of the toxic family, and understanding that what happened was in fact abuse is a long and difficult journey. It is only the first step on our road to recovery, but it really is the most important one. That first step toward a better, more healthy life.
I once heard someone speak of the children of narcissists as Bonsai Children. We are put in a small pot, our growth is stunted, our potential seems lost.
