What we're about
You are in the right place if a little pesky word that starts with an "n" has been on your mind lately. The N word often brings up mixed feelings as we realize what it really means and more importantly and perhaps surprisingly - who it applies to.
For Support in coping with narcissism in intimate relationships such as parent/child, sibling or spouse.
This group is intended for women and men who consider themselves to have been, are, or are in the process of ending a relationship with a narcissist and who are interested in learning coping strategies for recovery. These coping strategies apply whether the narcissist was a spouse, friend, partner, boss, co-worker parent or other family member. We go through some deep work but we laugh a lot and have a lot of fun as we learn and grow. :) This group is intended to provide support in recovering from narcissistic abuse and learning and incorporating tools and strategies to move on and not only recover but also thrive after narcissistic abuse.
I want to be loud and clear about this: The mission of this group is to stop narcissistic abuse NOW. I don't mean in the whole world. I mean in YOUR life RIGHT NOW. I mean get healed and stop the cycle now and forever in YOUR family tree. Narcissistic abuse stops with us.
I was raised in a family heavily peppered with narcissistic traits as coping mechanisms for shame, trauma, depression, anxiety, a sense of inferiority, and culturally practiced humiliation. Going through narcissistic abuse recovery has helped me build a loving marriage and some deeply fulfilling friendship relationships previously not attainable. I still struggle with narcissism in every aspect of my life but I practice shame resilience and behavior awareness to live well. I am honored (and often challenged!) to change the painful patterns I grew up with in my roles as a mother, wife and friend.
