Heightened Emotions

Originally posted on Ladywithatruck's Blog:

I have found that since leaving James I have a heightened sensitivity to any form of injustice or suffering.. I can’t even watch some videos on dog rescues because I am so sickened with how people can neglect or abuse an innocent animal. Abused children!? Don’t get me started.

I find I cry a lot lately, not because of James pursey ( although I think it is indirectly caused by the abuse I suffered because of him) but because of the lack of compassion or empathy I endured my empathy has grown to the point of almost embarrassing. I can’t stand suffering of any kind, Animal Kingdom type movies where an animal is killing its prey can upset me for hours. 

My heart breaks for all the people suffering in the world right now and I am still upset about Robin Williams. There is so much suffering in the world…

Narcissistic Personality Disorder

Originally posted on Dedicated to my two children Scott & Layla:

What is Narcissism? ( NPD, Narcissistic Personality Disorder)

I feel compelled to return to this subject once more because once again I have been subjected to the unacceptable narcissistic practice of abusive email messages from an ex-partner. This can be disturbing enough in its self  but when the sender displays narcissistic tenancies and uses your own identity through identity theft to send the emails, then its time to bring in the appropriate law enforcement agency.

If you are or have ever been on the receiving end of such abuse, this website has useful information and can be contacted. They will point you in the right direction of the appropriate online law enforcement agencies in the UK.

Some people diagnosed with a narcissistic personality disorder are characterized by exaggerated feelings of self-importance. They have a sense of entitlement and…

A Stitch in Time saves Little to Nothing with a Narcissist

I remember it was my Mom who used to say, “A stitch in time saves nine.”

The pace of the saying stayed with me, although I never really reflected on its meaning too much – that is until someone with narcissistic tendencies entered my life.

“A stitch in time saves nine” simply means that to address a problem immediately when it is still likely small saves time, energy, and aggravation later. Don’t place the first stitch in a timely manner and you will end up confronting a bigger hole (problem) in time.

Because I am such a time conscious and proactive, problem-solving type of person, this could be a life mantra for me. And this has been wonderful, until a narcissist entered my life.

Unconsciously, like me, you may operate under the “A stitch in time saves nine” principal in life.

You plan, you strategize, you evaluate, you…

The Freedom Agenda – What Every Empath and Co-Dependent Needs to Know

Originally posted on Let Me Reach with Kim Saeed:

You are not responsible for the pain, dysfunction, and poor decisions of others…

What was that you said?  You feel burdened by all that is wrong in the world?

You feel an overwhelming pressure to make things better?

Did I hear you correctly?  You even feel guilty or responsible for what’s wrong in other people’s lives?

What a heavy weight we carry when we decide to take on the burden of another person’s choices or life.

Empaths and Codependents feel it’s their obligation to save the world.  And when they’re being manipulated by a Narcissist, this sense of obligation becomes their whole identity as the Narc plays the victim to the nth degree.

It’s crucial to acknowledge that a Narcissist is disordered.  When we support them, we are either knowingly or unknowingly supporting a lie, as the person we think we’re helping doesn’t really exist.  Living a balanced and happy…
