Episode 9: What does a normal relationship look like?

Dana Morningstar

In this episode, the question of what a normal relationship is discussed.  It’s very common for a person to come out of a relationship with a narcissist, and to be so confused as to what’s normal (because they’ve been told the whole time that all this abusive or problematic behavior they’ve been experiencing is normal). I discuss the difference between normal and healthy, as well as why aiming for “normal” can be problematic in it’s own way.

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 agree with you 110%, we need to interview them ‘long and hard’ for a very important job, being your partner for life. I used to think (in the past) that i was the one who had to prove myself to others, (I guess that was a sign of my low self-Esteem in myself) and it never accord to me that they too had to pass my rigorous job interview, that they had to tick all of my boxes to be MY partner…and once I figured that out, I was rejecting men, left/right and center that weren’t up to the the job…had no time for time wasting behavior.
    there is a good book that I highly recommend called, ‘Marriage is a loving business’.
