It's just a shame that one can't stay informed about these gifts, - see details, or plan to attend - WITHOUT participating in Facebook.  I would have been THRILLED to attend.

How to help someone who is a victim of narcissistic abuse and does not it

Mon Sep 25, 2017 9:40 pm by kibou

As my recovery seems to improve, other type of problems arise.

I am surprised to find that there were so many blood suckers next to me. My my "best friend" was a narc. I was horrified when he even admitted. It's amazing that they do not care to admit it openly.

The most surprising one was my aunt. This was totally unexpected.

My mother is on the way to the recovery after more than 3 …

Going-too-far looks

Thu Sep 21, 2017 9:38 pm by kibou

When talking to someone I really appreciate I start feeling "too interested" and it feels weird and out of control.

I don't want to show sexual interest to a workmate or a friend or a business partner! These are people that I should get along with, and even admire, but "not that much".

I would like to find a place in between, but at the moment, I haven't. It's like, either …

Phrases you might hear

Thu Jun 30, 2016 8:21 pm by zebrage

I think it can sometimes be difficult to decide whether what we faced as children was in fact emotional abuse or whether it was normal and we're just sensitive. Sometimes when I read people's posts on here, and they describe something similar to what I experienced, I feel validated by it. So I would like to know what phrases people heard as children that you found to be invalidating. Perhaps at …

Flashback occurring at same time as present situations anxiety

Sat Sep 09, 2017 5:39 am by sara44

I don't know what to do about this "double" thing that happens...

I'll be feeling anxious about a current situation (medical), feeling out of control and anxious i'll get hurt.
This triggers flashbacks to when i got hurt and was out of control of a situation in the past with an abusive husband.

The "emotional" flashback "colors" the present situation with extreme …

Passport control

Brief history: I'm 38, have a good job and am single and live by myself. Two years ago I was jobless, living with my parents and trying to recover from rape and stalking. Found out lately that my parents didn't believe me and told the police this. Four months ago a new partner damaged my car and broke into my house with a key he'd kept. The police didn't want to hear about it.
Now I need my …

Empathy vs. Compassion

Sun Oct 23, 2016 8:15 pm by KatC

On one of the recent videos Richard pointed out that Americans view empathy and compassion as virtually the same thing and then he went on to clarify the distinction between them and the importance that we realize that distinction.  I found that very helpful in my understanding of narcissism as I paired that knowledge with "cold empathy" as noted by Sam Vaknin.  I'm now under the …

Movies about ptsd

Wed Jul 20, 2016 9:40 pm by christina.s

I recently watched this film Whiplash and found it quite triggering for emotional flashbacks, but its also art, and well....
Its about a ptsd student / narcissist teacher hxc relationship.

There could be a movie section in this forum if you like...
I really liked for example Good Will Hunting that Richard suggested in his videos and would be interested to check more films

Translating into other languages?

Sun Jun 04, 2017 8:10 pm by kibou


I hope Richard won't mind if I share what I have on my mind now confused

I have seen a whole book being translated by thousands of people in the world (for free) just because they wanted so much to collaborate with the project and learn at the same time. For the projects I know,Transifex was used. However, there are a few other platforms out there.

I would myself devote some of my …
