If you have been in relationships in your life – romantic relationships, family relationships – chances are, you encountered a toxic person. One kind of toxic relationship behaviour is narcissism. If you have been close to a narcissist before, you will know what it means to suffer from it.
One feature of narcissism is manipulation. These people know how to trigger your deepest fears and make you feel co-dependent. Sadly, being with a narcissist often makes you feel trapped, helpless and results in a loss of your own self-esteem. With emotional mind games, such people literally make you feel trapped.
Power: Surviving & Striving After Narcisstic Abuse is a book by Shahida Arabi addressing survivors of narcissistic relationships. It is an empowering and inspirational read, teaching you how to claim your power back. If you experienced a narcissistic relationship before, this book can help to set you free.
Being in a relationship with a narcissist is a trauma of its kind that needs recovery. First, you will need to learn how to break free. To end the circle of hurt and be your own person again. Then, once you are out, you will learn how to heal. Only with a healing period, you will be able to love and be loved again – in a healthy way.
