    Ending the Stigma One Conversation at a Time

    I shared my previous post with some church leaders, and such amazing conversations are happening. Borderline personality disorder must be talked about. In fact, all mental illnesses must be discussed within the church setting. We have to work together to end the stigma and silence surrounding mental illness! We are not outcasts. We are not untouchables. We are not less than. Our stories deserve to be heard. We are worthy of being listened to! Don’t give up on sharing your story. ❤️ #MentalHealth #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #Church #EndTheStigma #BreakTheSilence

    Just a quick introduction

    I found this site when searching for help with CPTSD - and came across a post by Mr Positive which actually made me laugh when I was feeling so helpless. It may me decide to join and start sharing (which I don't do) so this is a big step for me.

    I have had a lifetime of abuse and only sought professional help 10-months ago. The medication and finally knowing "what is wrong with me" has been life-changing.

    Thank you Mr Positive @mrpositive your post, opened the door and I am grateful for that! #BreakTheSilence #CPTSD

    The Narcissist Knows Right From Wrong.

    Narcissist do know what they are doing is wrong. If they didn't they wouldn’t try and hide their unfair, hurtful and abusive behavior. How else would they employ the use of the tactics they use so skillfully. They are very well aware of what they are doing and how much it hurts you. They use tactics to hide what they truly are. You simply cannot use tactics to blame some one else for the behavior if you are not aware of your actions. They can easily switch off their false self to their true self at the flip of the switch. How else do you think the narcissist can easily go from demeaning and belittling you to charming you. Narcissist are truly GREAT MANIPULATORS. They can lie, cheat, treat you badly and some how manage to make it all seem like its your fault. Don't fall for it, that's just what they do! They are a case of arrested development. They live in the mindset of a child. Like a child, THEY KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RIGHT AND WRONG but choose to do wrong when they can get away with it. Narcissist know exactly what they are doing they just cannot allow something bad to be their fault. It is another manifestation of their supreme SELF CENTEREDNESS as well as a PROTECTION FOR THEIR FRAGILE EGO. It is also a primitive method of avoiding external repercussions. They've got it all worked out pushing you to your very limit knowing very well that you have a breaking point and when the narcissist succeeds as they so often do, they sit back and watch as you crack under the pressure and torment. You have been deeply hurt, isolated and misunderstood. The narcissist knows your reaction will direct attention away from them. They know exactly what they are doing to you. They just believe they have a right to do it, and they have no empathy for you. In their sick minds, you deserve what they are doing, and they get a kick from feeling powerful. They want to trick you, and others, into believing that they are innocent by playing the victim and making you and others feel like you are a terrible person. #BreakTheSilence #NarcissisticAbuse 🖤
