Hi! My name is Nikola. Since leaving the relationship with a covert narcissist and embarking on the journey to recovery, I have learned so much about narcissistic personality disorder and abusive relationships in general. I have also come to realise that the extent of narcissistic and psychological abuse is something society is highly unaware of and as a result, narcissists essentially get away with crime after crime. This is because this type of abuse is so intangible, unimaginable, and the abuser manages to put on different masks. It is time to expose narcissists and increase awareness of the damaging effects of narcissistic abuse, and hopefully one day, we will have laws put in place to deal with the crimes of narcissists.
This journal describes my experience with a narcissist right down to the detail. I will also publish more information on the traits of narcissistic personality disorder with time. For those seeking to get out of an abusive relationship or for those on the journey to recovery, I hope that this journal will offer assurance that you are not alone and that you can get out and recover. Take a deep breath and follow the light in front of you.
