aggressive communication and narcissists

Aggressive (communication): One of the four communicate styles.  (The four different styles are known as: Passive, Passive Aggressive, Aggressive, Assertive.) An aggressive person communicates in threatening or violent ways.  Punching, spitting, cussing, kicking, shaking, yelling, threatening are all some examples of aggressive communication.  This type of person is (mistakenly) what most people think of when they think of an abuser. While some abusers communicate this way, many do not. Abusive people come in all shapes, sizes, genders, ages and with a wide variety of communication styles.

I am a self-help junkie, former advocate for victims of domestic violence, current psychiatric RN, as well as being a recovering victim of Narcissistic abuse.

My goal is to educate, empower, and inspire other abuse victims in understanding more about what happened to them (and how to prevent it from happening again), as well as how to go on and rebuild an amazing life.

Even though I have had a lot of "in the trenches" experience with highly manipulative people of all kinds, I consider myself to be a student of Narcissism, mindset, motivation, healing, and life in general, and am by no means an expert on any of these topics.

It's for these reasons, that when you are reading my information that I encourage you to hold to what helps, and let the rest go.

  1. I got divorced(2 kids) and a year later met a sweet girl who was 16 years younger than me. She also had two kids and we soon entered into a full blown relationship, I thought that I had met the one. She was sweet, caring and loved my girls and I was so happy.
    She told me that she had a really ugly divorce from her husband and how abusive he had been and all of the horrible things that he had done. I just kept on showering her with love, support and gifts etc.
    After a while I started noticing dodgy behavior, other guys messaging her continually, I found a message on her phone where she told another guy that she loves him and then the emotional roller coaster started. She made excuses and said that h is a just a good friend etc. She implied that I had trust issues because my ex wife had cheated on me.
    She would push me away and then reel me in continually and every time I would try harder to keep things on track, but as I would get close to her again she would push me away.
    Then I started noticing more and more how she spoke to her parents, other family members and then how she started speaking to me. her behavior got worse over time but she knew which buttons to push with me a all times , enough to keep me there. They are charming and clever and from the outside they look like the real deal.
    Then out of the blue she dumped me over something so small and disregarded me like I was a piece of trash.
    Within a day she went back to an ex and slept with him and broke up his relationship and felt nothing for what she had done.
    I had been going for counseling by then as I had become an emotional wreck and my counselor never mentioned Narcissist at all but told me that I was a codependent.
    I don’t believe that I am a codependent but believe that I am an empath who fell for a pretty young covert Narcissist.
    I know that I am better off without her in my life but I am struggling to come to grips with the fact that one minute you think that you know someone and the next minute they turn on you like a rattlesnake with 0 remorse and they feel nothing. that has bee the hardest lesson for.
