In this episode Carla asks how to use the gray rock technique at her son’s wedding. She’s going to be seeing her ex-husband for the first time in 20 years, and doesn’t quite know how to handle the situation.
I give my response, and I hope that you’ll give yours too in the comments down below. Let’s see if we can help Carla stay gray rock, and turn this tense event into the joyous one that it should be!
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.
I am also a former advocate of victims of domestic violence, a former victim of Narcissistic abuse, and am currently 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!
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.
