Being a victim of narcissistic abuse can make you feel like you’re alone in a dark place
You’re victimized by narcissistic abuse and may not realize what that is. You seem oblivious and disconnected from your own emotional pain and mental anguish. Instead of seeing the good in yourself, you tend to be obsessed with your own failures, inadequacy, desperately seeking answers on how to solve the specific problems and flaws the narcissist has identified as causes for his misery.
I can help you feel heard. We’ll talk about the “narcissist hangover” that you may have experienced. After a conversation with a “narc”, maybe even the next day, you have this beat up, groggy/foggy feeling. Your memory is fuzzy, have low energy, maybe even body aches and pains. That’s what this is.
Perhaps, they have given you a list of the expectations you have not met to take with you to therapy, most of which are centered around you not being attentive enough, being too attentive to the children or your family, and not enough fantasy sex.
Your mind is often spinning, preoccupied with trying to sort the confusion — tactics such as gaslighting on your mind, with intent to distort your reality and they’re so insecure, why they cannot communicate, why they still don’t understand what you’re trying to tell them, and so on.
You may be…
- Questioning your sanity
- Mistrusting those who support you, i.e. family, parents
- Feeling abandoned, as if only the narcissist cares
- Feeling worthless
- Giving yourself no credit for your hard work
- Doubting your ability to think or make decisions
- Disconnecting from your own wants and needs
- Giving into whatever the narcissist wants
- Devaluing your contributions
- Obsessing on your faults or mistakes
- Ignoring or making excuses for narcissist’s actions
- Spinning your wheels trying to gain narcissist’s favor
- Obsessing on how to make the narcissist happy
- Idealizing the narcissist
