Episode 20 of the “Ask a Question” Show: How Can I Tell if I’m Seeing a Red Flag or Just Being Hyper-vigilant?

FAQs about Narcissists

In this episode Tammy asks, “How Can I Tell if I’m Seeing a Red Flag or Just Being Hyper-vigilant?”

I give my response, and I hope that you’ll give yours too in the comments down below. Let’s see if together we can help shed some light on this for Tammy. 🙂

Disclaimer: I am not a therapist, doctor, attorney, or expert in Narcissism…or anything at all really. If anything, I am a student of life, love, behavior and behavior change.

My experience and input comes from being a former advocate of victims of domestic violence, a former victim of Narcissistic abuse, and from (currently) being a psychiatric nurse.

* I am moving away from using the term “Narcissist” as I find it only seems to add a tremendous amount of confusion to things–not to mention there’s a very solid chance the word will be removed from the DSM here in the near future. Instead, I want people to focus on what matters, and that is the behaviors of people that I’m now referring to as “manipulative, dangerous and destructive people”.

I’m on a personal mission to share all my lessons learned from highly manipulative, dangerous, and destructive people in order to help YOU get all the clarity, closure, and healing you need in order to avoid, and recover from, these kinds of people.

Remember: You are not crazy. You are not alone. And yes, you really can heal from this.

Questions? Comments? Concerns? Frustrations? Ideas? Need some support? Just want to say hi? Let me know!

Do to the tremendous amount of emails I’ve been getting, the best way to get it touch with me, is thru the support group, as I spend as much time there as I can:

All manipulative people have about the same predictably unpredictable behavior. The good news is that they all come with the same set of red flags.

Learn the red flags and empower yourself with the knowledge you need to help you steer clear of toxic people.

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. Thanks for your information and support. Going through various episodes, it does help me to gain clarity. I agree with you on so many points. I have gained a lot of compassion for myself. I am worthy of having reciprocity of respect in a primary relationship and other relationships, yay !

    or (allow).I saw signs and red flags
    They just had me in mind control…!!
    I was Kinda’ a trance (semi- conciously.)
    They persued me to do things I would not morally do. I couldnt break the spell I was under.Looking back~I find most of my life, I was magnatized to these kinds of people being an empath and have recalls from others abuse,too.
    More if I get a reply.Bunni hugs

  3. Hi Bunni,

    I’ve been having email issues on an epic level. I’ve switched email providers twice now, and I’m still not certain that anything is sorted out. :/ The best place to ask questions (and for me to see them) is in the support group: http://www.NarcissistSupport.com/forum

    So many of the questions that you touch on here are questions that we have all asked ourselves. I hope to see you on the forum, and then we can see if we can help point you in the direction of the clarity you are seeking. <3
