If you keep finding yourself meeting narcissist after narcissist, you aren’t alone. Emotional manipulators are out there in droves. And the fact that you are starting to see them (and to see problematic behavior for what it is) doesn’t mean you are crazy or hypervigilant, it’s more a sign that you are starting to see behavior in others clearly–versus seeing them through the lens of how you are. However, the more you examine your vulnerabilities and boundaries, as well as get in tune with your gut instinct, the quicker you will be able to distance yourself from the disasterous impact of these types of people.
If you are looking for support, I have two support groups (both are free). The first one is on my website: www.thriveafterabuse.com/forum and the second one is on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/HealingAfterNarcissisticAbuse (it is a closed group, but please make sure to read the group rules before you post so that you can change any privacy settings you may need to in order to stay safe).
Looking for daily motivation, inspiration, or more information about narcissism in general? You can find me (Dana Morningstar) at:
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.
