Are you aware that EVERYONE has them?
I recently had a conversation with someone, and they said they felt the word "Narcissist" was thrown around too much. This person had a conversation with a therapist, specifically asking if they, themselves, were a narcissist.
Their conclusion to the conversation was, no they were not - but everyone can have narcissistic tendencies.The fact that they cared enough to ask, was the game-changer. Most do not.
The fact of the matter is, in most Domestic Violence situations, the narcissist involved does NOT care about their "narcissistic tendencies" - because they don't want to see themselves as the problem. It's ALWAYS someone else - their "blame game" IS strong. They make the choice to let their "Narcissistic Tendencies" rule them - thereby attempting to rule everyone in their path.
There is no "cut and dried" answer- every situation is different. It's all about the choices each individual makes.
Plus, we must remember, that when a Victim says they are a Victim - NOBODY has the right to tell them they aren't, because their feelings are valid. We can't tell anyone that how they feel is wrong - no matter who you are.
I hope this inspires you to keep telling your story; and please reach out for help if you're a Victim OR a Narcissist. There IS hope, and a way to make changes in your life...
Thank you, and have a good day, and be safe... #oneinfour #ithappenstomentoo #dviseverywhere #domesticviolence
