Publisher's Summary

Do you feel you're not the individual you used to be anymore? Do you feel all your lovely qualities have been stripped away? Are you struggling to see what's true and what's not?

Chances are you have been associated with a narcissist for quite a while, living in a false reality.

The casual tossing-around of the term "narcissist" has resulted in many individuals wrongly assuming that a narcissist is just someone who has an inflated sense of self-trust and, maybe, a mildly inflated ego as well. Unfortunately, the dictionary reinforces this faith by describing a narcissist as "an individual who has an excessive stake in or admiration for himself". This is a more probable definition of an arrogant individual, not a narcissist. A narcissist's truth is far darker than that.

Narcissists tend to think incredibly highly of themselves, but they are extremely complex and well aware of the truth about who they are and what they do. Narcissism is an intricate, well-constructed set of characteristics embedded in one mental illness that is very harmful to all those who cross a narcissist's routes, particularly their lovers.

Some individuals exhibit narcissist-like characteristics, but this is completely distinct from who a real narcissist is. A real narcissist is a phenomenal deception master and an extremely skilled curator of codependent victims. They're strong. Not only is the narcissist in love with receiving attention but totally addicted to it. That is the foundation of their mental illness. It's what drives them and what results in all their puppetry behaviors being masterfully played out.

If you are thinking about listening to this audiobook, it is likely because you are seeking support for leaving an abusive, narcissistic relationship or desperately trying to find ways to heal yourself. 

This book will educate you on complex topics, including:

  • Narcissism
  • Narcissistic personality disorder
  • Traits of a narcissist
  • Signs and symptoms of narcissistic abuse
  • Creation of the narcissist
  • The cycles of abuse
  • Long-term damage to the victim
  • Strategies to safely escape the narcissist
  • Narcissists' manipulation tactics
  • Why we fall for a narcissistic
  • Letting go off anger you are feeling toward yourself 
  • And many more

This book will give you a good deal of value and insight into all you're going through and what you need to do next. If you are still in the relationship, this will help you begin to demystify everything that has happened and recognize the truth of what you are experiencing. This is an important component of breaking free from the partnership and healing yourself, as you will discover.

Hard read!

Seems the author is more interested in using big words no one else can understand than anything! Shook my head through the first hour, kept coming back to try again and couldn’t keep going. I consider myself a somewhat intelligent person, however, this book made me feel like an idiot! I definitely don’t recommend this book!!

Changed my perspective

I was in a relationship with a narcissistic for three years. I am 23 and we got married when I was 19 and I'm still recovering from the abuse. it's very difficult especially since I was discarded right after giving birth to our child. This book helped me cope with what occurred and made me realize that being abandoned was not my fault.

Narrated seems one sided

Seems the writer believes that mostly just men are narcissist and in my experiences that is a completely false assumption

Knowing content

It is very elegantly composed by the creator. Writer worked admirably of composing. I might want to bring up that it doesn't paint the dad as a lethargic and oblivious. I play out the stance, care, and morning mental warm-up activities constantly.

Powerful

I have listen it and was so impressed that even my boyfriend decided to listen it too and now we are using it so often to explain our feeling better and avoid the conflicts we used to have. It just helped me understand how essential the ability to empathize is. A truly worthwhile listen.
