You are not alone …
Narcissism and Codependence are patterns of behaviour passed on from generation to generation. If you grew up in a dysfunctional family, these bad relationship habits may seem like normal and healthy behaviour to you and you won’t see the damage they may be causing yourself and your family.
Are you living in a narcissistic/codependent marriage or family? Welcome to my blog which is packed full of resources and loving a friendly folk. On this post you can share a little of your story and offer support and encouragement to other visitors.
This blog is moderated and all comments viewed before approval to protect all participants from abuse or criticism.
There are a few golden rules to make sure your posts are approved anywhere on this blog and so please read these carefully …
- Do not make posts if you are feeling emotional and looking for someone to talk to to help you feel better – An important step in our program is learning to self soothe. This means learning to help yourself feel better when you are upset without needing help from anyone else. We recognise that this may be a significant change of habit and will require some work, so if you need help please check out our audio library here – Back to Calm – for emotional support. Changing this one habit is very important and may be truly life changing for you.
- Do not make posts if you are angry or distressed. If you are angry make a short note of what upset you (to consider later) and for now take a walk, have a bath or do something that will help you relax and feel better. If you are experiencing emotional distress and are having trouble self soothing – please check out the audio products here – Back to Calm for emotional support. If you are not safe and require assistance please calm down as much as possible and call for help from your local police and/or emergency services
- Do not suggest other contributors leave/divorce their partner. Leaving is not the easy answer people pretend it to be and if not managed correctly may escalate the conflict and potential for family violence. We strongly respect this decision to be very personal and up to the individual.
- Before giving advice please become familiar with the steps in our program. Put simply this blog is a place for people using our program to support and encourage each other.
- Do not use sarcasm or insult or criticise other people’s comments (or your posts will NOT be approved).
- Do not post here if your only intention is to promote other websites, books or products.
- Do not provide your last name, address, email address or any other identifying information about yourself or anyone else.
- For ease of reading, if your post is long please use paragraph breaks.
- Steve and I are real people and deserve courtesy too! If you feel the need to criticise either of us or question our methods or approach, please do so by contacting us privately at our personal email addresses (which can easily be found by searching for our names in Google).
- Don’t take it personally if we don’t get back to you. We respond to as many posts as possible, but this depends purely on our schedule and availability. If you do receive an answer – you might try asking again a few days later!
I look forward to hearing your story!
