I've been on the receiving end of a 5 year narcissistic relationship that left me a mere shell of who I was prior to the relationship.
What we will work on it first venting all your frustrations, recognize you are being heard and understood by someone who has been there.
Next we begin the process of rebuilding your self confidence, worth, etc. It sounds simple but it takes tears to heal and cleanse the emotional abuse.
Malignant Self Love Narcissism Revisited, By Sam Vaknin
"People have a need to believe in the emphatic skills and basic good-heartedness of others. By dehumanizing and objectifying people – the narcissist attacks the very foundations of the social treaty. This is the "alien" aspect of narcissists – they may be excellent imitations of fully formed adults but they are emotionally non-existent, or, at best, immature.
This is so horrid, so repulsive, so phantasmagoric – that people recoil in terror. It is then, with their defenses absolutely down, that they are the most susceptible and vulnerable to the narcissist's control. Physical, psychological, verbal and sexual abuse are all forms of dehumanization and objectification.
What to do?
Never show your abuser that you are afraid of him. Do not negotiate with bullies. They are insatiable. Do not succumb to blackmail."
