The term narcissism is used a lot these days to describe someone who is full of themselves. However, narcissism is not self-love. A narcissistic Personality disorder is a personality disorder that can affect the lives of all the people who are in a relationship with a narcissist. It is an inflated self-image that is rooted in intense feelings of insecurity.

Different types of mental health issues that you or your loved ones may be dealing with… 

Depression

Depression is a severe mood disorder. Some common side effects of depression are difficulties functioning, maintaining social relationships and loss of interest in normal daily activities. Depression can impact a person’s ability to participate in day-to-day activities such as eating, sleeping, or going to work. 

Anxiety

The different types of anxiety disorders that are most common today can leave an individual constantly overwhelmed, uneasy, and nervous. Although some temporary anxiousness can be considered “normal,” understanding whether a person has an anxiety disorder can make the difference in getting the needed treatment or not. Anxiety affects your psychology, biology, and your social world.

PTSD

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) affects individuals who have been through traumatic life events. Whether that’s a natural disaster, sexual or physical assault, or anything that causes significant lasting traumatic memories. People who have Post-traumatic stress disorder can have flashbacks, nightmares, explosive episodes of anger and persistent worries that the event might happen again. They may also suffer from panic attacks, which usually triggered by something that reminds them of their trauma.

Question of Narcissism from our social media page

Hi how are you? I read your post and decided I have a question for you…. does narcissistic abuse have lasting affects? Or can most issues be resolved quickly with the right therapy?”

Thank you for your question

Recovery and healthy remission depend on the frequency, duration, and severity of the traumatic experience. It also depends on the depth of the #gaslighting suffered (gaslighting intended to render the Self vulnerable to make it more pliable). Also, if the NPD individual is still in one’s life due to family obligation such as children, it makes it very hard to heal without setting some clear (maybe legal) boundaries.

The goal of talk therapy in this situation is to re-construct the shattered self with patience and diligence. It is to purge the mind of the imprinted irrational sense of vulnerability. That vulnerability became us through sustained abuse but it is not us. We are strength the moment we seek help anew. The strength of seeking therapy to recover from such inhumane abuse is to commit to forgive/rescue the past self and protect the future self actively from individuals who will attempt to make us feel vulnerable in order to crush us under the weight of irrational fears.

The task is worth it because we are worth it.
