The Narcissistic Personality/Partner – Knowing When Love Is a Lie
What is the narcissistic relationship agenda?
** Check out the new Video Book Trailer for When Love Is a Lie**
Suffering emotional abuse at the hands of a narcissistic partner or someone with a narcissistic personality disorder can be indescribable for the victim and hard to fathom for anyone on the outside looking in. Most victims of narcissist abuse are unaware that they are even victims until they begin searching for clues as to the odd behaviors of their partner. Eventually, investigations lead to websites such as thenarcissisticpersonality.com and then all suspicions are confirmed.
Do the behaviors of your partner continually cause you to feel suspicious? Are you subjected to silent treatments and other forms of controlling punishments? Do you find yourself walking on eggshells, choosing to overlook these behaviors rather than face the repercussions? Does it appear that your partner creates chaos just to keep you feeling anxious and insecure? Are you becoming obsessed with trying to figure it all out? Answer ‘yes’ to any of the above and you may be involved with a person who has narcissistic or psychopathic tendencies – tendencies that will never go away. Your efforts to change this person will always be in vain. I know because I walked down this very same path for 12 long years.
This year, the Amazon Kindle When Love Is a Lie became the surprising relationship game changer for hundreds of victims of narcissistic abuse – and it can do the same for you. Deliberately non-clinical in content, my book explains the pathological relationship agenda of the narcissistic partner, how this agenda is creating your reality as a victim, why we become codependent on the very drama that we hate, and, most importantly, what we can do about all of it to save our own lives.
A partner or lover with a narcissistic personality has what I refer to as a pathological relationship agenda – a very specific agenda where the suffering of another is ultimately the narcissist’s reward for a job well done. Using sex, lies, and passive-aggressive tactics (like the Silent Treatment and similar control strategies), the narcissist manages down our expectations, making it nearly impossible for us to see the relationship for what it is much less go no contact.
Stop Spinning, Start Breathing is a companion workbook to When Love Is a Lie and a recovery tool for helping you pick up the pieces of your broken heart. In this workbook, you learn to face and manage the memories that keep us addicted to the narcissistic nonsense. It is important that you start now on your recovery – whether you’re in the relationship or out of it or somewhere in between. It does not have to be over between you and the narcissist for you to feel better and get stronger. Read more about this book….
Both When Love Is a Lie and Stop Spinning, Start Breathing discuss in detail the major characteristics that separate someone with a narcissistic personality from, say, a person who’s simply an inconsiderate asshole. The line is not as fine as you might think. It’s all about a willingness to cross boundaries that the majority of us simply wouldn’t cross and if you’ve spent any length of time with a narcissist, you know exactly what I’m talking about.
