Did the narcissist in your life turn it all around and shift the blame?
Some people are haunted by their memories. What helped you control your thoughts?
Go back 10 or 20 years. What advice would you give to your younger self?
If you could give some advice to your ex narcissist’s new partner, what would it be?
Some people are having difficulty with finding themselves alone and are tempted to return to someone who they are much better off without. What advice would you give?
Unfortunately some people tend to feel pangs of guilt when they go ‘no contact’ with a family member. However, sometimes this is the only option in order to protect yourself from abuse. Did you feel guilty?
Many people who have been the target of abuse find it hard to forgive someone who is not sorry for the hurt that they cause. They feel guilty because they hold on to thoughts of revenge. How did you deal with these feelings?
Narcissists are renowned for provoking a target until they react. When you finally snap, they sit back calm and composed making you look like the crazy one! Have you experienced this behaviour?
A question I am asked often…
Do you think the narcissist knows they are a narcissist?
The cause of NPD is not known but there are many theories which include…
1. Over valuing as a child
2. A learned behaviour
4. Abuse in childhood
The cause is most likely complex with the possibility of more than one factor being at the root of this disorder.
In your experience, have you found that NPD has been passed down from one generation to the next?
