Some info on trauma bonding, plus a few questions to help provide support to anyone who may see this and need it 💜 . To me, trauma bonding is one of the worst effects.... this is a reason you feel like you'll die without your abuser, even when you can logically reason otherwise... . Those intermittent "good times" aren't actually even good anymore... being with the abuser is like this continual progression downward, much like effects of a drug... you have been broken down in an insidious way over time and you can get so low that any ounce of kindness or even a less hurtful act of cruelty will feel like a relief...and it may momentarily bring relief but it never has the same effect and can't last. Gotta get away to heal yourself 🙏💜 . .

About a year ago I reached the end of my marriage. Bald Man and I had put on offer on a house, and it wasn't accepted. Just like that he was done, he said "well since things didn't work out with the house we might as well get divorced". I was beyond confused. We had just been talking about buying and house and growing our family and now it was over. Ended like a bad story. I've decided it's time to share my journey over the past year. And this is how it started. #emotionalabuse #narsissist #narassticabuse #personalgrowthproject #domesticabuse #emotionalabusesurvivor #emotionalabuseisstillabuse #emotionalabuseawareness #everystoryhasabegining

*God's Word has the final say! * Today is of great significance to me. Today I celebrate 28 years to the day since I and my children escaped from an evil predator who subjected us every day for five years to unrelenting domestic violence and abuse. God provided for us a way of escape when there was no way. It was an extremely harrowing & traumatic but glorious & victorious day when we finally escaped ! 'Many are the trials of the righteous but the Lord delivers him from them all' - Bible Jesus is My Saviour! All those who put their trust in Him will never be disappointed. I can't tell you how happy I am! 'Blessed are those who suffer for My sake for theirs is the kingdom of God' - Jesus I would get beaten up all the time for no reason and also just for going to church but I still went! It turned out to be my salvation! 'I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me' 🙏 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 Only God delivers and saves! #morethanaconquerer #overcomer #victory #God #Jesus#standagainstdomesticviolence #saviouroftheworld#bible#iescapeddomesticviolence#1_6_92 #forevergrateful#havefaithinGod#thankful#thankyouJesus#happymonday#ohappyday#butGod #agreatescape#havefaithinGod#domesticabuse#abusesurvivor#sydneysnorthernbeaches #sydney #AUSTRALIA#hope

Aside from the typo, this is very accurate... Speaking from my experience, and using the kids "choice" is a cowards way to stand behind the kids while they are impressionable and when there's absence of actual documented abuse. This is a #narcissisticmother at play. Good moms ensure the child or children have time with their father as much as possible (yes including overnights and all possible times out of school) not just a visitor /paycheck although they love that. #Brainwashing, #bribery, #lies, #manipulation, #alienation #childabuse #emotionalabuse #psychologicalabuse #domesticabuse #gaslighting #kidsrights #iwasalienated #childrenneedbothparents #bothparentsmatter #deadbeat #toxicmother #controlling #martyr #narcissism #narcissisticabuse #coercion #coercivecontrol #coward #baitingandbashing #crazymaking #babymamadrama #corruptcourts

Most medical communities and autism professionals are missing vital information neuro-typical spouses/family members have to offer, regarding adults with Asperger's Syndrome. Neuro-typical spouses, married to adults with Asperger's Syndrome, have 'learned' the 'culture' of Asperger's Syndrome by living alongside the disability 24/7, 365 days a year...sometimes for decades...uninterrupted. Neuro-typical spouses have many of the answers to the questions being asked about adult Asperger's Syndrome individuals' lifestyles, behaviors.

• SUCCESS • Every time you succeed, you move up the ladder in the narcissist’s mind. This success will automatically stimulate the narcissist’s fear of being surpassed, which will lead them to either ignore or devalue your achievements. When a narcissist’s partner/friend/family member or colleague has a win or even just finds something besides them pleasurable, it is a potentially threatening situation for the narcissist. It can arouse envy, fear of being surpassed, a potential loss of their own dominant status, or simply be seen as unimportant. You are not crazy.

Yesterday I had the honour of co-leading a zoom with the amazing Mother James who is the head of christian council for women aged 18 to 40yrs old for Cogic UK. I was able to share my story and did my best to educate all the women who attended about domestic abuse. It was very emotional but my prayer as always was if it helps ONE, saves ONE or transforms the mind of just ONE person than I have done my job but prayed due to current times that my message would impact the heart of any victim of domestic abuse that was listening and the change would be immediate! It is hard to ascertain the impact you make when speaking and sharing your story in the hope it will help others, as have learnt and had to accept that there will be times that all we can do is plant the seed in hearts of victims of domestic abuse in the hope that it will grow but I always pray that when I share my truth it will positively impact the hearts that hear it 🙏🏽 I caught up with Mother James today and she informed me that there ended up being 70 women on the zoom and that she had received a call just after midnight from a lady that was on zoom but had not wanted to show her face or name, telling her she had now found the courage after hearing my story to admit for first time that she IS a victim of domestic abuse, living with her perpetrator and wants to now get support to get help to leave 🙌🏾 She also led a church service today that many women spoke about the zoom and said they felt their minds had been transformed in regards to domestic abuse through the power of my testimony🙌🏾 Hearing this made me so emotional as blessed my heart that this amazing, brave, courageous woman was that ONE I had prayed for and that God used my mouth to minister to minds that previously were uneducated about domestic abuse due to being unaffected! Praise God 🙌🏾 We each have a UNIQUE story that MATTERS so please never be afraid of sharing it as what you survived or have overcome WILL be the key that unlocks the prison of torment, abuse or hopelessness that someone else is currently living in 💛 #glorytogod #testimony #domesticabuse #survivor #freedom

A year ago I broke out of being silenced by stigma by writing and documenting my experiences with male narcissists. The abuse I was subjected to from my ex was truly life altering, I’m lucky to of made it out alive I was killing myself over and over by staying in a relationship with a heavily disordered man. The trauma I endured will stay with me for the rest of my life but by stopping myself being afraid to speak my truth I have helped thousands of men and women worldwide and will continue to do so. You must always remember narcs are not well balanced people contributing positively to life and relationships. They’re toxic. It’s a con trick. It’s the proverbial donkey and carrot situation. The carrot is static on a stick in front of the donkey, just out of reach to eat. The donkey supposedly just keeps walking and walking in the hope of reaching the carrot, which of course it never will. The stick will never get any shorter and even if it walks faster it can’t get closer to the carrot. The carrot is ALWAYS and FOREVER unobtainable and ALWAYS WAS. The huge gap between what the donkey wants and what’s available is permanent. The gap is all that’s on offer, EVER. The carrot could represent the narcs dreams…. but he doesn’t tell you you’re not included in those dreams… you never were… everything’s his, no matter how much effort and for how long you make that effort. MORAL OF THE STORY…… don’t follow someone else’s dreams… for you or them. They get pleasure/supply from another’s pain or downfall, makes them feel ‘more than’ they are. They get pleasure/supply from conning people out of their assets.. money, prestige, energy, material goods, status, social standing, etc - no conscience whatsoever. They just love getting through life at someone else’s expense, material, psychological, emotional, spiritual. They’re parasitic. Speak up and save yourself and others there is no shame in admitting you were abused I promise you there’s so many people willing to help you and listen 💕🤗🙏

‼ WORLD NARCISSISTIC ABUSE AWARENESS DAY ‼ ▪︎ ▪︎ ▪︎ ☎️ 0808 2000 247 World Narcissistic Abuse Awareness Day on June 1 dedicates the day to education, support and effective change. Unlike physical abuse, narcissistic abuse leaves no physical marks. A form of Psychological and emotional abuse, it is invisible and difficult to prove. Yet, its effects are lasting and harmful. One of the reasons why emotional abuse goes unnoticed is there aren’t any definitive laws prohibiting mind games, browbeating, or name calling. Even though, bruises and broken bones heal much faster than a broken spirit. The only way to end narcissistic abuse, is to start by raising awareness and educate people about what it is, the warning signs, and how to avoid pathological people. #narc #narcissisticabuse #narcissist #narcissisticrage #flyingmonkeys #narcfree #narcissism #narcissismawareness #sociopath #pathologicalliar #psychopath #healing #recovery #toxic #narcissisticabuseawareness #narceducation #narcex #narcissistsociopathawareness #ifmywoundswerevisible #domesticviolence #domesticabuseawareness #knowledgeispower #domesticabuse #domesticviolenceawareness #gaslighting #triangulation #NPD #ASPD #npdawareness #underthemask

#SelfReflectionSunday Take the time to seek and understand who you are! Who are you? Besides a mother/father, sister/brother, woman/man, etc. Who are you? When you find the answer, make that a daily goal to be the best version of the person that you are. And if you can already answer that question, continue to be that person and always be the best version! And remember to never lose who you are for anyone or anything! Look in the mirror, say who you are and vow to be forever be you! "My name is --, I'm amazing, I'm strong, I'm a fighter, I'm a survivor, I'm a go getter and have so much potential. I'm going to be whatever I set my mind to be and do whatever I set my mind to. I will never lose myself to love another or please another. I will be FOREVER ME!" 💜 #ForeverMe #whoami #whoareyou #SelfReflectionSunday #selflove #Depression #Bullying #Anxiety #SuicidePrevention #DomesticAbuse #DomesticViolence #Uplift
