What is narcissistic abuse?
Learn about it
Narcissistic abuse affects millions of people worldwide, but public awareness is alarmingly low. If you’re the victim of domestic abuse, your partner may be suffering from narcissistic personality disorder (NPD), with a highly inflated ego, a lack of empathy, and a need for complete control.
Three truths about narc abusers
Here's how to distinguish ordinary selfish or self-absorbed behavior from narcissistic abuse.
Narcissists form a trauma bond
The trauma bond is a powerful form of love addiction, and why it’s so difficult to leave, no matter how abusive they are.
Narcissists destroy self-esteem
They will gaslight you, convince you that you’re the problem, and they will never consider that they’re in the wrong.
Narcissists will never change
They may love bomb you and profess to be a changed person, but that is only to trap you into submitting to their control.

Phase 1 - Shock and denial
You don’t want to accept that your partner is abusive. You make excuses for them and believe it's your fault. If you just change your approach or behavior the abuse will stop.
Phase 2 - Realization
You suddenly realize your partner is not who you thought they were. This can be a painful awakening. You may feel guilty for everyone affected and angry at the abuser.
