So who hasn't been affected by narcissistic behavior in toxic personalities? This is a group for people who will share their experience, strength and hope dealing with the affects of narcissistic abuse, whether with a family member, people in the work place, or in personal relationships. We will focus on education of behavior patterns of this personality disorder, learn healthy strategy techniques to protect ourselves from ongoing abuse, and pursue personal soul healing from past and present relationships.
This is an anonymous group. What is said in the group, stays in the group. You will learn to open up to safe and trusted individuals. My vision is to see suffering lessened by sharing our hearts with others who understand the devastating effects of having to interact with people who actively engage in these behaviors and more: control, condemnation, rudeness, evil, manipulation, irresponsibility, shaming, accusation, attacking, blame shifting, gaslighting, etc. Diagnosing the problem has given me freedom, hope, and joy. I have learned to not take on others' projections of self-hate personally, and I practice "selfish" self-care. You will learn to set healthy personal boundaries to preserve your self-esteem. Please join us and let's heal together!
