Are You Addicted to Narcissistic Abuse?

Find out if the stress in your relationships with family, friends, or at work is unknowingly caused from an underlying addiction to narcissistic abuse.

Many people don’t realize that they were raised in a family with narcissistic abuse and that is why narcissistic relationships feel “normal” to them.  They don’t know what is wrong with their lives.  They don’t realize that they have continued to fill their lives with other narcissistic relationships, and this is why, no matter how hard they try, their relationships aren’t working.  It’s because they haven’t known what they’re dealing with. 

Surprisingly, in a family in which there is narcissistic abuse, things sometimes seem rather normal.  But…upon closer examination, there are certain “rules” in the narcissistic family:  Parents are right and apologize for nothing; parents don’t spend time teaching kids how to do things and then are shocked when their child makes mistakes.  The child is often given a shocked look or is outright criticized or shamed.  The child wonders, “How could I have not known that?” and vows to never be found inadequate again.  Internalized shame, perfectionism, and codependency are often the results of this narcissistic abuse.  As an adult, this person will likely be drawn to narcissistic relationships because it is what is familiar.
