April 19, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 242

Narcissism or Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) is a mental disorder that involves persistent pattern of grandiosity. The person with this disorder constantly wants to be admired, is obsessed and infatuated with himself. The narcissistic individual also lacks compassion and empathy; is ruthless, egotistical, seeking dominance and gratification. To deal with and to live with a narcissistic can leave someone very traumatized due to the emotional abuse the narcissistic partner has caused. If you were married to a narcissist, you may find that it is difficult to escape from that relationship. If you do escape, your recovery will be long and painful. No matter how difficult the road to recovery is, you have to get through it so that your life will be back on track again.

• You have to know what the qualities of a narcissistic person are. It would include frequent display of jealousy, infidelity, control, lying, and insecurity, verbal and even physical abuse. If these behaviors are not excused and are often tolerated, it would seem to the narcissistic person that they are acceptable. If you were successful in leaving a narcissistic partner or spouse, he will certainly lure you back again. As much as you love this person, you have to be firm in letting him know that his narcissistic behavior may only be resolved with the help of a professional. He must seek professional assistance to correct his abusive personality or he will not change. Being manipulated and believing that your ex will change on his own accord will only bring you back to a miserable and painful life.

• In recovering, you also need to realize that you are your own complete person. When you decided to be in a relationship or marry a narcissistic person, you may have already developed dependency on that person. He may have captured your heart with his attentive, generous and suave personality. This then resulted to your emotional dependency on him that eventually turned out as something for you to regret. Once escaped from the binding relationship with a narcissist, do your best to regain your emotional independence. It will help you to be firm and able to stand again on your own. Learn to love and accept your own self-worth. Set your own standards for whoever will soon come into your life. Do not accept anyone whose attributes are less than the standards you have set and you know you rightfully deserve.

• There are various materials that are now available online about dealing with narcissism. These resources will help you in understanding more about this disorder. Your gained knowledge will empower you and will make you realize what weaknesses have caused you to be captured in the narcissistic bait.

• You may also look for groups and organizations where you can be a part of. These groups offer help and an opportunity to communicate and interact with other people who have suffered and endured narcissistic relationships. These are the people whom you need to be with, together you can inspire one another and help one another obtain complete recovery and freedom from your past experience.
