YOU CAN THRIVE AFTER NARCISSISTIC ABUSE by Melanie Tonia Evans

by: Melanie Tonia Evans




Although it was an almost unknown term a few years ago, narcissistic abuse now seems to be reaching epidemic proportions. Not that it is anything new, rather it is at last being recognised and understood. The author’s message, that you can thrive and not just survive, comes from her own intense experiences. She believes a narcissist is someone who never formed a solid sense of inner identity and thus abuses others. She quotes scientific research
which shows that trauma can cause the condition, as well as faulty maternal care, and it is also a condition that can be inherited from traumatised parents, such as holocaust survivors. It is not easy to recognise narcissism in a partner, or to recognise oneself as someone who can attract such a partner, especially when deeply embroiled in an abusive and toxic relationship. Part Two of this book contains exercises to get to the root of pain and start to release the trauma to gain inner freedom.
