Never Let A Narcissist Into Your Head


Our mind is our most sacred possession. And it’s much too valuable to hand over to someone who wants to trash it – a narcissist.

Victims of Narcissistic Abuse Should NOT Be Revictimized


Some people can’t stand to refer to themselves as a “victim” of narcissistic abuse. They prefer the word “target." I don’t see the difference. Tomato, tamato, potato, patato.
“Victim” seems to be a shameful, dirty word for some. I don’t share that shame. I believe we should give the word “victim” the respect it deserves.
In light of my recent blog post on “Narcissistic Abuse and Isolation,” and the comments that followed, I thought the following article might be helpful for some readers. I printed it out in 2008. There is no author. I found it on a link from a blog.
VICTIM?
Dr. Frank Ochberg, Harvard trained MD and trauma expert says our culture blames, isolates, and condemns someone for being a victim.
Victim, survivor, victimology, victim abuse… why are victims being told to deny their reality? Sometimes being sad is normal. It doesn’t mean you stay there, but don’t feel guilty for it.
Why everyone can’t just “move on” and “choose a happy future.”
The concept that a victim can always consciously choose how to proceed, is flawed. Abuse is trauma and the ability to take steps forward is impaired. Sometimes, help is needed.
The phrase, “move on with your life” is common. Sometimes said to those who have lost a custody battle, lost a home, or savings, a family or job this phrase can be another betrayal. Just when a victim needs support, they are asked to go it alone.
The infrastructure of a life is often destroyed leaving the victim stunned, hypervigilant, indigent, betrayed and perplexed as to why they are expected to “choose” not to be a victim.  Give them a time machine and this can be done. Give them revictimization and it cannot.
It’s time to give that word back its status and in doing so, respect the abused. Respect comes in the form of providing help with a compassionate approach to those stripped of dignity through abuse in courts of law, or by their partners, (I added) abuse by their family members.
What is the definition of a victim?
According to the dictionary a victim is: One who is harmed by, or made to suffer from an acts, circumstance, agency, or condition; a person who is tricked, swindled, or taken advantage of.
The victim of a narcissist is traumatized. There are biochemical changes in the body and structural changes in the brain. Thought patterns change, brain cells dies, there is chest pain, muscle pain, feelings are intense and emotions chaotic.
Why are victims revictimized?
Because it is politically correct to say, “I’m not a victim, I’m a survivor.”
Not all victims are the same.
Some have more resiliency than others. Some are without resources or support. Many have physiological changes that need to be addressed. And when those who need help come looking for it, instead of being welcomed, they find “helpers” that tell them they are responsible for healing NOW. These people are revictimizing because “choice” is NOT always an option.
We must reclaim the word “victim” and renew our commitment to those who are victims. We should examine the role of victim impact statements and victim advocate for those who are traumatized emotionally as well as from a criminal act.
Are you being victimized again by someone who says, “If you won’t stop being a victim, I won’t help you.”? Maybe your attorney, therapist, siblings, or friends are claiming that you can just choose to stop being a victim. Maybe they think you can start a company without money, and buy a house with bad credit. Maybe they don’t know what they’re talking about.

As a victim of any kind of abuse you deserve:
1.      Compassion
2.      Validation
3.      Freedom from therapeutic abuse
4.      A support team to open doors to resources
5.      A friend, therapist or counsellor who can teach you the skills to rebuild your life 
Depending who you are, this may take a long time or not. Variables include amount and length of abuse, health, supportive family or not, finances, genetic explanatory style (optimism or pessimism), coping skills you may already have and many others. As a victim, you have the right to say, “STOP” to those who blame the victim. An entire self-help industry has arisen that believes if you just really wanted to, you can be happy and healthy and fully functional as soon as you choose to be. A starting point for recovery is post-traumatic stress sites. There you will find trained and compassionate support people with articles that explain trauma healing methods.
The Scientific Basis of Healing, Happiness and Recovery.
It doesn’t matter if you call yourself a victim, a survivor or a Martian. No one should deny you victim status. It is what is.  A victim is not a sloth like creature, nor stupid. Nor is a victim responsible for what happened to her and we must stop worrying about language and start helping. A victim is a person with a life in chaos. What matters is that you get the help you need and the compassionate trained person to give you the skills.
The good news is that happiness is trainable, resiliency comes back and psychologists are moving from the Freudian model which has dominated psychology for too long and was wrong to boot, to a model that moves from pathology as the dominant scheme. The process of de-traumatizing begins with validation. It then moves to retraining explanatory style. Depending on the depth and time of abuse, it may take a long or short time to process to empowerment and control. IT IS NOT NECESSARY to analyze every event. It IS necessary to be heard and listened to and to tell your story. But not over and over to everyone who will listen. Validation is critical.

The Malignant Narcissist Troll


My last blog post touched on malignant narcissist cyberpaths and cyberstalkers, so I knew it would only be a matter of time before a narc came out of the shadows. Like clockwork, I caught me a narc troll.  I asked it, “Where do you come from? Where do you breed? Do you write in dark basements?” All the troll could do was point at me and grunt. They’re nasty little critters:  short, stumpy and beady-eyed with glowing heads from spending too much time parked in front of a computer screen. It appeared to be dunked in neon orange slime. I believe the source of slime to be a greasy coating of processed cheese goo acquired from endless noshing on microwave nachos picked-up at their neighbourhood 7-11.  I asked it why it sends cryptic messages to complete strangers, but all it could do was point and grunt. I’m keeping the troll in a cage in my backyard for further study. So far I’ve been able to deduce this much about the repellent little creature.
Like my sister, all internet trolls are malignant narcissists. They are predators, and their behaviour is premeditated. They are stalking prey. They are contemptuous of living, feeling human beings. Their world is amoral, antisocial and incredibly bleak.  Malignant narcissist internet trolls are bored, angry, moody, alienated loners and losers. They are the quintessential Wizard of Oz: impotent little creatures pursuing their delusional sense of importance behind a secretive, solitary, and anonymous vice. The real world doesn’t give the troll the feedback it craves. It longs to be admired, but the world is indifferent to it.  It isn’t even acknowledged. It is completely rejected.  So it slithers around the internet as an aimless, amoral, and antisocial nobody. And like skunks, it shoots quick sprays of inner poison as a way to get noticed.
Sadly, the wretched little troll lacks purpose and vision. It stands for nothing. It lacks meaningful desires.  It is unproductive and has no purpose in society.  So it lashes out at others in order to relieve itself of the unbearable realization that it is not the centre of the world. It barely exist on its fringes. Its basement is but a dank, dingy, self-imposed prison of failure. The troll literally lives in the dark like a cockroach.  And a blog about malignant narcissism baits it and agitates it. The bright light of exposure forces it to face the unsettling reality of its vile nature and its only significance in the world as a creature for study. The information is too much for the tragic little troll to bear because it shows there is something very wrong with its way of being in the world. It degrades its lofty imge and incites its secret self-loathing. So the N troll fights like hell to repress the knowledge of whom and what it is by projection.  Yet it is weak, cowardly and scared so it sends its projections via cryptic internet search key words - a very obvious form of gaslighting. The narcissist troll has the mentality of a nasty three year old. It sticks out its tongue and runs away.
When I read this I burst out laughing. It’s classic narc!  It’s so transparent. 
gal get a life narcisists blog
Troll, you’re nothing but a cockroach, and like a cockroach you scatter and hide when the bright light of REALITY is cast on your vile existence as nothing more than a parasite. It goes without saying that you have no life, but that doesn’t mean that you’re entitled to snack on others. There’s no crumbs for you to feed-on here. But thanks for offering-up yourself as malignant vermin to mock. You got noticed as the joke that you are: a ridiculously inadequate "creature." You narcissist trolls make it sooo damn easy.
Yawn… you bore me. I think I’ll unlock your cage and let you creep back into your dark, dank hovel. 
Ps. Lay-off the nachos. You’re showing a lot of junk in the trunk.

Exposing The Malignant Narcissist

Annihilating others is essential to the malignant narcissist if they are to continue to feel superior. Public condemnation, affirmation and notoriety give them the attention they crave:  being feared, despised or pitied affirms that they exist as “somebody.” So what of the Blogs on the evil of malignant narcissists? Are they a form of public condemnation?
