Publisher's Summary

Are you the victim of a narcissist? Do you want to find out how to deal with emotional abuse?

We’ve all known a narcissist at one time or another. Charming, self-confident, and fun to be around - the narcissist can make you feel great about yourself for a little while. When you see the narcissist’s real face, it’s another story. Put-downs, mind-games, and relentless criticism combine with emotional blackmail and other forms of manipulation to leave you drained and confused. When the narcissist moves on, you’re left all alone, wondering how someone who seemed so wonderful could have hurt you so badly.

Narcissistic abuse is a widespread problem in our society, causing long-term emotional and psychological damage to the victims - including symptoms such as intrusive thoughts, flashbacks, anxiety, depression, and isolation.

If you’ve been the victim of abuse by a narcissistic family member, friend, or romantic partner, you probably have a lot of questions about what happened to you and why. Most of all, you probably want to know how to keep it from ever happening to you again.

In order to understand narcissistic abuse, you must understand the narcissist, a person driven by deep insecurity and self-hatred to present a false face to the world. People with Narcissistic Personality Disorder seem supremely confident but are actually so insecure to the point that they must constantly seek new sources of praise and admiration. Understanding what drives the narcissist is the key to spot one and avoid falling prey to their manipulative games.

Narcissistic Abuse, is the guide that you’re looking for! This audiobook will teach you all about:

  • Narcissistic Personality Disorder

Finally, Someone who actually gets it!

I highly recommend this book to all mental health professionals and to anyone who is or has ever been in an abusive relationship especially those who are battling Complex-PTSD. Sadly, very few mental health professionals have knowledge or understanding of this disorder.
