When going 'no contact' or leaving are not viable options: discover how to cope with narcissists while living under the same roof, sharing a workplace, or co-parenting.
Do you know what it feels like trying to please your loved one, only to find your efforts have made matters worse?
Or how you’re left feeling worthless and stupid after another session of criticism and ridicule by someone close to you?
Has a colleague at work ever blamed you for his failures, or spread gossip about you?
If this sounds familiar, you might have a narcissist in your inner circle.
Psychologists and behavioral experts are still debating the causes of narcissism, but they all agree on one thing: having a narcissist in your life is extremely harmful to your well-being.
Coping with a narcissist leaves you feeling drained and empty, and deeply affects your self-esteem.
The scariest thing about such individuals is probably the fact they can get away with this behavior for years, by destroying the confidence of their victims.
Breaking free from that toxic circle of narcissism and codependency is hard, especially when you’re dealing with someone close to you.
People who have experienced this type of abuse often advise others to escape by breaking all contact with a narcissist.
But what happens when leaving is not an option? When a narcissist is your parent, sibling or an ex-spouse you have to co-parent with?
If you’ve found yourself in such a situation, and you feel trapped and hopeless, take a deep breath: you’re not alone, and there’s a way to regain your freedom and confidence.
