Covert Narcissism

4 ratings

Summary

Covert narcissism is a hidden and concealed form of narcissism, making it all the more difficult for the abuser to be confronted or "outed" for their behavior. Covert narcissism is a passive-aggressive, hostile, and toxic form of abuse that makes victims feel hopeless, unheard, hurt, and confused by the abusers' behavior.  When you think of a narcissistic personality, it's likely you think of a loud, grandiose, and "look at me" type of character. A lot of people don't realize that there is a much stealthier, more introverted form of narcissism, and therefore covert narcissists can often get away with their toxic behavior without being found out.  I was in a relationship with a covert narcissist. I know the frustration, disappointment, anger, and humiliation a covert narc can make you feel. I understand the helplessness you feel when you're in a relationship that has such an invisible toxicity that you think no one would believe you if you told them about it.  This audiobook, driven by my desire to help and connect with other victims of narcissistic abuse, aims to give you the knowledge you need to stand up to covert narcissistic abuse. The chapters include: What Is a Covert Narcissist?  The Six Giveaway Signs of a Covert Narcissist  Can a Covert Narcissist Love?  Confusing Conversations with a Covert Narcissist  The Effects Covert Narcissism Has on You  Setting Boundaries and Interacting with a Covert Narcissist  Looking After You  Ways to Leave a Vulnerable Narcissist  I've been through a decade of narcissism and abuse, and I strive to support those who are or have been through this kind of emotional abuse. I hope this audiobook can someway in helping you understand the dynamics of a narcissistic relationship, but most of all, I hope it helps you find the strength to relinquish your role as a source of narcissistic supply to your abuser.

Don't Judge a Book by Its Magic

Summary

Colleen is a normal girl. She loves shoes, chick flicks, and cute clothes. The only thing abnormal about her is that she's just become a magician; not the disappearing bunny kind, but the power-shooting-out-of-your-hands kind of magician. Her problem now is that she doesn't believe in magic. Well, she believes in it. She's seen it shoot out of her own hands, but she opposes it in a moral sense; no hexes, no spells, no incantations, no potions, no amulets, no tomes, no casting circles, no eye of newt, none of that. She has to be very clear because people pressure her about it. Whatever they say about "how it's done," this is a morality issue for her and she will not cave in to their pressure. Join Colleen at Seattle Pacific Regional University, where she becomes a part of The Convergence. She'll learn the freaky side of Work Study, Financial Aid, and Vyxhepiocht. Seriously, she's never seen so many hot guys. It's going to be wild!

On the Island

Summary

When 30-year-old English teacher Anna Emerson is offered a job tutoring T.J. Callahan at his family's summer rental in the Maldives, she accepts without hesitation; a working vacation on a tropical island trumps the library any day. T.J. Callahan has no desire to leave town, not that anyone asked him. He's almost 17 and if having cancer wasn't bad enough, now he has to spend his first summer in remission with his family - and a stack of overdue assignments - instead of his friends. Anna and T.J. are en route to join T.J.'s family in the Maldives when the pilot of their seaplane suffers a fatal heart attack and crash-lands in the Indian Ocean. Adrift in shark-infested waters, their life jackets keep them afloat until they make it to the shore of an uninhabited island. Now Anna and T.J. just want to survive and they must work together to obtain water, food, fire, and shelter. Their basic needs might be met but as the days turn to weeks, and then months, the castaways encounter plenty of other obstacles, including violent tropical storms, the many dangers lurking in the sea, and the possibility that T.J.'s cancer could return. As T.J. celebrates yet another birthday on the island, Anna begins to wonder if the biggest challenge of all might be living with a boy who is gradually becoming a man.
