Valentine's Day Reminder

Valentine's Day provides a perfect opportunity for our ex-narcs to "hoover" and attempt to reel us back in. Therefore, I'd like to remind everyone why we cannot and should not fall for it.

Many of us don’t understand why we can’t stay away even after we learn how toxic the narcissist is to us. We must remember they have brainwashed us. Like a salesman, they keep us coming back with the lure, the promise and the hook.

Narcissist Ex goodbye text to me... help!!

I recently joined this forum after having read tons of articles on here due to my most recent breakup with my ex. He is not officially diagnosed as a Narcissist, but he has a lot of uncanny traits of a Covert Narc. Here is a link to a page that pretty much describes him to a T: 30 Red Flags You Might Be Dating a Narcissist. My ex was always very sweet to me. He always got me a blanket when I was cold without me even asking. Would cook every night (he loved to cook).

Sadistic narcissist triangle

I can't believe I've been through this whirlwind of drama, comparable only to the latin telenovelas...
I'm 33, and a psychologist, by the way. I used to pride myself for being a very keen judge of character and usually first to spot behavioral red flags, where others were oblivious. Well, joke's on me.

Pathological Narcissism on Display

President Trump’s latest Cabinet meeting might have been the most nauseating display of pathological narcissism the press has ever witnessed in the White House. Instead of letting the media leave after the requisite amount of photos were taken, Donald Trump insisted on commending his administration. Only to continue to say, they have helped him get more accomplished than any President since Franklin D. Roosevelt. This is not true, of course. It’s quite the opposite, actually.

Five Myths about the Narcissist at Work

While narcissism has become a sign of our times, it is often misunderstood. Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) is a disguise for a deep-seated sense of shame the person with NPD lives with, but often does not realize. The shame and insecurity they feel causes them to lash out at others and be overly controlling and abusive in their relationships. Learning about NPD and how it manifests itself in both personal and work relationships is an essential survival skill in today’s increasingly narcissistic world.

Narcissist Blocked My number

My narc ex just blocked me last night. Two weeks ago, I initiated No Contact. He would not leave me alone and was begging me. I caved two days ago... I answered his text. Just to tell him goodbye again. Then he said I was cut off. So last night I sent him chocolates because I felt bad for telling him goodbye. Then I text him... he said leave me alone forever. I tried to apologize, he said text me one more time and you're blocked. I called and then he blocked me. I wanted to say something nasty to him but I couldn't. I feel like he may have unblocked me but I don't want to check.

Valentine's Day Gift

Valentine’s Day means different things to different people.  Some dismiss it is as nothing more than a Hallmark holiday while others have grand expectations of what their loved ones should do to express their love on the fourteenth of February.

Either way you choose to look at it, I’d like to give you an opportunity to share the gift that keeps on giving with your loved ones…..knowledge.  Knowledge is power as we always say.  I’ve been writing about narcissism for close to ten years now and what never ceases to amaze me is the lack of knowledge out there on this topic.
