Overcoming Emotional Abuse Caused by a Narcissistic Personality

Overcoming emotional abuse caused by a narcissistic personality is a challenge for anyone facing that mountain!

What is Abuse?

“Abuse” is a word that is thrown around a lot in casual conversion; but what defines abuse?

Am I being Abused?

So what exactly constitutes intimate partner violence or spousal abuse? What are the different types of abuse?

Spousal abuse does not necessarily involve physical violence. Women who are mistreated in less apparent ways may need support in recognizing that their partners’ behavior is unacceptably controlling and constitutes abuse.

We categorize abusive behaviors under eight general headings. Each type of abuse involves an imbalance of power in the relationship, whereby the abuser attempts to degrade, intimidate and thereby exert control over his partner.

Abuse includes: Emotional, Social, Financial, Physical, Sexual, Environmental, Religious, and Ritual Abuse. 

A single one of these acts may not constitute abuse, but if someone is doing something to harm or control you then you are being abused. You have the right to be treated with respect and to feel safe in your home.

What Is Narcissistic Personality Disorder?

Narcissistic Personality Disorder is nothing to take lightly. Nor is it a label to lightly put on someone you think is arrogant. 

The warped thinking is so ingrained and stubborn that the mental health profession has had little success in dealing with it. It’s called “malignant” narcissism because it is just that, malignant. So, it’s far worse than just being arrogant. A malignant narcissist is a predator

In other words, Narcissistic Personality Disorder is as serious as sociopathy. In fact, it is increasingly thought to be a form of sociopathy/psychopathy. NPD isn’t occasional behavior. It is a pervasive pattern of thinking and behaving that corrupts virtually every human interaction.
