"Why do I still feel like I love him?"
"She is so awful; what makes me think she's ever gonna change?"
"He abuses me constantly, but I still feel like I want to be with him."
These statements have all been made to me repeatedly by people who are involved with toxic narcissists in relationships.
So often, I hear my clients lament the loss of their narcissists - not the toxic person they currently know, but the person they thought they'd known - or the person they believed they were involved with.
This has become such a regular thing that I thought it was time to address the issue for you here.
Are you experiencing this painful part of the toxic narcissistic cycle? Are you tired of being gaslighted, tortured and generally manipulated by someone you thought loved you? Do you miss him or her even though they've destroyed your self-esteem, not to mention your life? If so, you might be experiencing cognitive dissonance due to the false image the narcissist initially presented to you - and this video can help you to begin to understand that it's REALLY not you this time. In this slideshow and in the attached video, I'll explain it all to you - very clearly and simply.
