Empowering Against Narcissism: Finding Strength

Being with someone who acts like they’re better than everyone else, like they’re always right, can really mess up how you feel about yourself.  They might say mean things or make you doubt yourself all the time.  It can make you feel like you have to depend on them, even if they’re not treating you well.  It can even make you sick from feeling stressed all the time.  But even though it’s hard, people who go through this keep going, even when things seem really bad.

I’ve had family and friends who acted like this, and it really hurt my feelings and made me feel bad about myself.  It took a long time for me to figure out that I’m actually pretty great just the way I am.  I used to feel unsure about myself and even pretend to be happy when I wasn’t.  But that just made things worse.  Dealing with someone who always wants to be in control made me feel like what I though or wanted didn’t matter.  it made me forget how important I am.

If someone acts like they’re better than everyone’s else, never says sorry when they hurt your feelings, or tries to make you feel guilty for thing that aren’t your fault, those are big signs something’s wrong.  They might act really nice at first but then start being mean later.  They might not respect your personal space or get mad for no reason.  Its important to notice these signs early so you can protect yourself from feeling bad.

When you’ve been hurt or treated badly by someone, it might feel like they’ve taken away your power.  But being a victim doesn’t mean you’re weak or helpless.  In fact, it can be just the opposite.  Going through tough times can make you stronger and wiser.  It gives you the chance to learn from what happened and grow from it.  Instead of letting it bring you down, use it as fuel to stand up for yourself and others.  You have the power to choose how you react and how you let it affect you.  Remember, you’re not alone, there are people who care about you and want to help.  Being a victim doesn’t define you; its what you do next that matters.  So, take control of your story and let it empower you to be even stronger than before.
