Divorcing a Narcissist

Summary

Do you want to divorce a narcissist? If yes, then keep listening.… Romantic relationships with narcissists typically start out like a fairy tale. There is the moment where you meet the narcissist, and you feel instantly attracted to him or her. You cannot quite place it but something about the narcissist feels too good to be true. There is a reason for this — she is projecting what she is learning is your ideal partner. She learns from the feedback you give when interacting and tweaks her behaviors until you feel like you are looking at an idealized version of everything you want.  As you grow more interested in her over time, falling for her pretense of perfection, she will begin the devaluation stage of your relationship, at which point she will essentially crush your self-esteem and leave you scrambling to get back to her good graces. She wants to make sure you are hooked on her, and this is the perfect way to test it.  Eventually, as this cycle of love bombing and devaluation continue, growing shorter and shorter with each revolution, she will begin to lose her interest in you. She may decide that you no longer have whatever it was that caught her eye, or she may simply be bored at the lack of the challenge, feeling all of the whirlwind romance hormones fading away, and decide that it is no longer worth her while to pursue the relationship. She may decide to keep you around while seeking alternate sources of narcissistic supply, such as from an affair partner, or she may decide to end things with you altogether, though she will keep you just interested enough in her, with small hints of you being interested in her scattered here and there to convince you that she may still come back for you.  Ultimately, what she wants is options for her supply and to perpetually live in the joy of the honeymoon stage of a relationship, though every relationship moves past that if given the chance to properly mature. She mistakes the purpose of relationships as being the honeymoon stage instead of seeing that as just one step in the process to a long-lasting relationship. Ultimately, she wants to do what is best for her, which is typically whatever feels best. She is not interested in a long-term relationship so much as in having fun and being the center of attention. This book gives a comprehensive guide on the following: The seven steps to follow to take your revenge Divorcing a narcissist Partner with just narcissism tendencies Recovering from narcissistic abuse Redefining yourself after the abuse Ending a relationship Psychological manipulation techniques Tips for prevention, FAQs, and helping someone in a narcissistic relationship How to break off a relationship with a narcissist Executing the no contact rule effectively Grieving after narcissistic abuse Extreme narcissism And more!    What are you waiting for?

How to Stop Procrastinating

Summary

For many people, procrastination is a daily vice that prevents them from doing really important and urgent tasks when there is no outside pressure. Postponement can become a problem not only in daily private activities, but especially in professional life. Psychologists go as far as to describe procrastination as a disruption of self-regulation, since the procrastinator cannot endure anything unpleasant in the short term to achieve something positive in the long term. Psychologist Stefan Förster of the University of Münster even believes that procrastination can be part of a disease that leads to depression. But what exactly happens with procrastination? Find out!

Narcissistic Mother

Summary

A narcissistic mother, to be precise, is the type of parent who is the center of their child’s universe, as well as threatened or envious of their growth and independence. The narcissistic parent feels as though their child’s purpose is to fulfill their own needs and demands. If their son or daughter does not do what is asked of them, the narcissist will then use their manipulative nature or abusive tactics such as ignoring them or treating another child as their favorite as a form of punishment.  When someone is raised by a narcissistic mother, not only are they inclined to developing NPD themselves, but the ability to regulate their emotions and reasoning skills become greatly affected. Simply put, the narcissistic parent will shape, mold, control, and use their children to their advantage, disregarding any of their child’s hopes, dreams, ethical values, and attitudes or behaviors.  As we have talked about, there can be three types of narcissists.  The children can be affected in different ways, depending on the category of narcissism. For example, if a mother was a vulnerable narcissist, her kid(s) would grow up passive-aggressive and have low self-esteem as they would constantly second-guess their decisions. If a child was raised by a malignant mother, he or she would then be raised doubting themselves or suffering from PTSD all through adulthood. Due to these consequences, we should take a closer look into the dark triad. With this bit of information, we can then dive into the disadvantages forming a narcissistic parent-child relationship and what the outcome may turn out to be.  A covert narcissist will cover their tracks and hide in the corner with their smug aura and internal self-superiority. However, a malignant narcissist is so close to the dark triad personality that they may just end up being psychopathic. Since narcissism is one of the dark triad personalities, it is best to define each one to get the best perspective of what a child of one of the people from the dark triad is about.  The personalities that make up the dark triad are narcissism, Machiavellianism, and psychopathy. Each personality has their own malevolent traits and dark behaviors that differ from another but meet the guidelines of what dark persons are believed to be. They all share the same traits of being non-empathetic, less agreeable, and egotistical. This book gives a comprehensive guide on the following: Effects of being raised by narcissists Protection tips Comparison between healthy habits and NPD traits Prepare yourself for the experience Can your narcissistic mother change? The narcissist family setting The broken parts Narcissism in family and relationships The cycle of narcissistic abuse Common narcissistic situations you may encounter And more!    What are you waiting for?

Narcissism

Summary

A personality of a person is shaped by experiences, environment, and inherited characteristics. But once the person behaves in an unusual way such as becoming aggressive, egoistic, and insensitive, then that person possibly has a personality disorder. For someone who is diagnosed with this illness, a lot of factors are considered to be the reasons contributing to such. This can also cause distress over a long period. In the 21st century, the most prevalent disorder case is Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NDP). This is one of the many mental illnesses that can destroy one’s life if not being controlled. Someone with NDP tends to project an attention-seeker attitude. This is common to the younger generation or what we mostly refer to as Millennials. Narcissistic people regard themselves as someone with dominating power. They usually disregard others. When they feel the urge to demean or insult people, they will not hesitate. They can even pose as the kind of people you never wish to interact with. They are manipulative in some ways, and often just showoff themselves to the many. If you know someone with this attitude, it is really frustrating to act nicely around them. However, even though they are annoying, we still do not know what made them act like that. According to some psychologists, people with Narcissistic Personality Disorder may have lived a miserable life, especially as a child. They have probably experienced neglection in the past. They might have never gotten the things they wanted during their childhood days. People with Narcissistic Personality Disorder requires immediate and thorough psychological aid because this can lead to suicide, depression, physical abuse, and drug abuse. However, confirmed NPD patients do not actively seek help themselves. This is for the reason that they strongly believe that nothing is wrong with them. Not until their disorder starts to impact their lives significantly. Even though these people are on the verge of major depression and suicide, they still would not consider asking for medical help. They believe that it would be detrimental to their public image when they start going to psychological therapy. They are afraid that others will look down to them, thinking that they have gone crazy. So, they prefer to hide everything to themselves than speaking up to a psychological expert or therapist. They do not want to look like a loser in front of their friends and family. People with NPD strives to continue to fit in as well to be accepted by society. They will put on a gallant mask so no one will know their weakness. This audiobook gives a comprehensive guide on the following: Signs and symptoms of the narcissistic personality disorder and their traits Who does the narcissist target? Narcissism in real life Developing emotional intelligence after narcissistic abuse Surviving narcissistic abuse Healing from experience with a narcissist how to defeat a narcissist How to get over them in real life Building healthy relationships...and more!    What are you waiting for?

Narcissistic Healing Relationship

Summary

There is no relationship as painful and dangerous than that with a narcissist.  The categorizing of these relationships is carried by making use of several kinds of abuse, which are: exploitation, gas-lighting, manipulation, disregard, and physical/verbal/mental/emotional/financial abuse. Empaths are seen to be generous, kind, deeply plugged into people’s emotions, and have more information about people than they do about themselves. Encountering a narcissist is an unlucky situation that doesn’t involve only empaths. The empaths are more often entangled with a pathological narcissist when compared to other people - this needs more investigations as it seems an unlikely paring in so many ways.   The empath in this relationship also needs to be fulfilled even though this does not ever seem to be the case. The empath is always the injured party, but she gets injured willingly. She has ended up caged in a relationship with someone who will always need her help. The empath has factually conjured up a career out of caring for a victim who does not desire to get better. To some people, this may look like victim-blame, but the empath can only get away from the narcissist for good by realizing that it is her choice if she stays and she can always choose to leave and that they only power he has over her is the one she gave to him.   Many narcissists are seen to be arrogant overachievers but tend to be a crip,ple in several ways by their disorder of not properly functioning in the environment not just superficially. The opportunity of taking care of someone in perpetuity is perceived by the empath, and even if she has no intentions of helping him, her nature can make her feel it is her obligation. How will he cope in her absence? Despite his horrible nature, abandoning him doesn’t seem fair due to his sickness is not his fault. The workability of his brain is not his fault. Perhaps he wasn’t loved enough when he was an infant, or he was abused. None of it might be his fault. Anyways, this is also definitely not the fault of the empath either, and she does not deserve the punishment for someone else’s mistake. She will be forever punished if she decides to remain in the relationship. Refusal to help people in need of her help is the empath's nightmare, especially when she could have helped them. Though she cannot help it, her logic is faulty.   This book gives a comprehensive guide on the following: Protection methods for empaths from anxiety and depression Traits that attract a narcissist Codependency Effects of narcissistic abuse over time Narcissist personality disorder and treatment options Assess if you have narcissistic personality disorder Helping someone with narcissism Coping with your abuser’s reaction Build your team Accepting the truth How do I handle narcissist abuse?
