Narcissism Survivor ~ Seeing the Truth

Narcissism Survivor

Seeing the truth....


For some, seeing the truth is the very hardest part, and may take months or even years. For others, it comes suddenly, almost overnight, and the shock is overwhelming, but the truth is suddenly obvious.

How do we figure out that someone we love has
Narcissistic Personality Disorder?

However it is that we see the truth, we can never go backward again. We are taking the first step forward, and we will only continue to see more and more truth. We can never again pretend that hatred is love, that words are reality, that parents always love us, or that a narcissist who is incapable of caring for another person cares about us. We have to face this truth, as painful as it may feel...

...And painful it will be. There's no getting around that. But if we have lived with a narcissist for a significant portion of our life, then we are very much accustomed to pain. This pain feels different, lonely, isolated, and scary. But it only lasts a little while. We can get though it. We can't go back to the land of narcissistic lies. We can never go back. We have to go forward. We HAVE to.
