Am I The Narcissist?
This is a very common question people ask themselves when they are in or breaking free from a toxic relationship. They have been gaslit deluxe by that point, blame has been repeatedly shifted onto them, the partner projected their own behavior, etc.
So it's no surprise, that self-doubt and insecurities creep in and this question arises.
Here are 3 reasons why it's not you.
You ask the question.
There are a few Narcissists, that are absolutely aware that they are and are fine with it.
So they wouldn't ask themselves that question.
Most of them are not aware that they score high on the narcissistic scale, though, and because they are in the clouds about their behavior, they don't ask themselves.
You are aware of your behavior.
We all have narcissistic traits. It's part of being human. And sometimes we exhibit one or the other, depending on the situation or circumstances.
That alone doesn't make you a narcissist. You are aware, that certain behaviors are not so great and shiny and you probably feel a bit ashamed of them, as you become aware.
A narcissist isn't.
You reflect on your behavior and take responsibility.
You know more often than not, that what you said or did, wasn't wonderful and you take responsibility for that behavior. You probably apologize, feel guilty, or ashamed.
A narcissist is never at fault. They do not accept accountability for their behavior. They are always in the right and everyone else is to blame. I am very excited to make an announcement.
In addition to my services, I will be focussing on a topic very special to me, beginning in August. It has been near and dear to my heart for a long time and I want to make it official.
There is one specific area men have been overlooked for a long time and I would like to change that.
My place will be a place where I will be helping men that come out of toxic relationships to rebuild their strength and redefine their life on their terms.
It will be a place they will feel supported, understood, and safe.
I know this is a topic to which a lot of shame is attached, and that is why confidentiality, and discretion are two of my top priorities.
If this can be for your benefit or the benefit of a loved one, send me an email at: email@example.com and I will get in touch.
You are not alone!
