Summary

Confusing. 

Crazy making. 

Draining.

Does this describe your relationship? 

Do you wonder if they will ever change? 

Do you want to know why they lie so much...even when the truth would work better? 

Have you wondered why they never seem to change - no matter how much you are willing to do for them, or how much love, understanding, rehab, religion, therapy, second (or 22nd) chances you’ve given them? 

If so, you are not alone and this book is a great place to start. 

This book covers the most common words, definitions, concepts, and questions surrounding narcissism, and narcissistic abuse, such as: 

  • Flying monkeys
  • Hoovering
  • Narcissistic abuse
  • Love bombing 
  • Trauma bonding 
  • C-PTSD
  • Scapegoat
  • Reactive abuse
  • And dozens more

The cycle of narcissistic abuse (and what it really looks like in motion). 

The different ways that narcissists and other types of manipulators go about exploiting your vulnerabilities. 

How to create a safety plan if you are trying to leave. 

A section for friends, family, and mental health professionals who are trying to better understand what's going on and how to help. 

Frequently asked questions about narcissists, such as: 

  • What is the difference between a selfish jerk and a narcissist? 
  • How do I know for sure if they are a narcissist?
  • Can a narcissist change?
  • Why do I miss them?
  • How can I stop attracting narcissists?
  • How do I handle all this intense anger I have towards them?

The best

I have never bookmarked a book so much in my entire life. Truly, I know it is a cliche, but this audiobook has been a life-changing listen. The advice, stories, the voice, it is all delivered perfectly. I think I am going to listen to it again now because it is that important to drill this information into my head. If you suspect you are with a narcissistic person, listen to this. You will get clarity.

Struggling with emotional abuse?

If you are currently struggling with emotional abuse or you're not sure and you're wondering why your partner is so cold, moody, hurtful, and evasive one day, but charming and loving the next...you should listen to this audible.

This book helped me A LOT

I’m been out of an abusive relationship for about a year and a half & didn’t realize that all of my relationships have been that way. Helps you take a good look at yourself & your boundaries

Excellent content and great delivery on audible

The content was VERY helpful to me. A lot of it was completely new to me and helped me recognize just how much abuse I experienced. I highly recommend the book. I just recommended it to a close friend.
