The relationship duo between borderlines and narcissists tends to be more common than we think. There is no true way to get a good picture of how many relationships span this dynamic, as many borderlines and narcissists go undiagnosed or undetected. Most narcissists don't have the intuition, knowledge of their condition, or interest in their inner world to pursue why they are the way they are. It is unlikely that they would seek treatment because of their overinflated egos...
"A lot of good tools and information."
The Winchester witches are all about love and family - and, well, snark and sarcasm - and no one knows that better than the family members themselves, plus the people who love them. Follow Clove, Thistle, Landon, Winnie, and Aunt Tillie as they share their lives - and innermost thoughts - through a series of short novellas that take you from the present, to the past, and then back again.
Narcissistic and toxic mothers are often injured in their childhoods by their own stunted emotional development. In order to fully develop into a healthy adult, we need a very nurturing and emotionally validating environment. Toxic and narcissistic mothers often grow up without that nurturing. They have jumped through hoops and tailored themselves to others around them. They have been invited to be a part of mind games, lies, and manipulation. They may have been told repeatedly that they weren't wanted.
"Knowledge that will empower."
Many of my readers and listeners come to me wanting to learn more and more about narcissists, abusers, batterers, and trauma bonding that occurs (and the woman's inability to leave the toxic relationship even when she has knowledge that it is toxic). The purpose of this audiobook is to uncover the overt and covert tools that are used by narcissists, abuser, and batterers to control, cause dependency, and form trauma bonds with people whom they want to keep in their lives to feed their own egos.
"Do not recommend...."
Many people wonder why women who are verbally, emotionally, physically, and sexually abused by their partners are still hanging onto the relationship. These women can end up in a hospital fighting for their lives. They can get their children taken away due to exposing them to an abusive male. They can lose all of their relationships, money, and dignity in this relationship, but still they come back to their abuser.
"It helped me not feel so crazy"
If you have downloaded this audiobook, it is likely that you are struggling to cope with a parent who is difficult.

They called him "The Phantom". He would appear in church, sit in the back pew, and then mysteriously disappear. Each of the young women in the ministry wanted to know who he was because he was so damn handsome and mysterious. Abby thought he was out of her league. Until a dare from her teasing girlfriends forces her to introduce herself to him.
This audiobook hopes to fill the gap for those readers and listeners who are seeking to fine tune their relationships or to improve an abusive or emotionally volatile relationship. We discuss NPD and BPD as they pertain to a heterosexual relationship, but the same rules apply if the roles are reversed and in a homosexual relationship. We hope to give new light to those who are choosing to stay in the relationship but want better ways to interact with their partner to make the relationship work.
Your man is just as confused as you as to why he is cheating. I am here to tell you that there is another reason your man cheated. It has a lot less to do with how you were treating him and a lot more to do with others things that were in his life a long time before you came along. It has to do with his upbringing and his caregivers, but not in the way that you think it does. In this audiobook I am going to cover the real reason that your man cheated.
In this audiobook, I hope to help you discover more information about schizoid personality disorder, its causes, and where you (or your friend) fall on the broad schizoid spectrum. We'll discuss different reasons that a person might have become schizoid and/or OCPD, including differences in the brain, head injury causes, and the different types of parenting in infancy that might have caused the disorder.
There is a simple explanation for our inability to tolerate a narcissist's behavior. The basic reason why we start to feel off balance in our relationship with a narcissist revolves around something called the law of reciprocity.
"Bits and Pieces. No real solutions."
Many people are shackled by their own rigidity and perfectionism. This book was written for those with OCPD as well as the loved ones of those with OCPD. We will explain what OCPD is and discuss its causes. We will then go into the various ways that a person with OCPD can seek to be more open, less rigid and perfectionistic, and experience less overall frustration with life.
The narcissist is a character in his own story. He employs the tactic of foreshadowing throughout his storytelling. He is omnipresent and omnipotent. He detests and resents anyone who paints the story for him, and thus he seeks to tell the story even in advance of itself. He wants to be the director, the storyteller, the adversary, and the hero. He narrates his life and his intentions so that he doesn't feel as though anyone else has a say over what will happen to him.
"One more munipulation tool you must learn about."
People never walk into a relationship assuming that they will be abused physically, emotionally, or mentally. The abuse also never starts immediately into the relationship at full force, as you would expect it to. Abusers often start out very subtly in a relationship with the different types of control, blame, and manipulation. They don't tell their partners that they intend to control them or ruin their lives in many ways.
You want to feel needed and loved, but you don't know why he is treating you this way. He used to be romantic, maybe even sending flowers and staying up talking to you on the phone all night long. Now you can't seem to drag his attention away from other things. Is it something you did?
You're fed up with the way that your relationship is. You're fed up with your OCPD partner. Their behavior is driving your crazy and hinges on the brink of abusiveness. You feel yourself slipping into the depths of depression. Stop the insanity. Rescue your marriage. Have the right conversations with your OCPD spouse right now.
I was able to tackle my social anxiety as an adult by taking the steps mentioned in this audiobook very slowly. I practiced each step in a variety of settings with a variety of people. I continued to push myself through every interaction with other people until I largely overcame my social anxiety. Once a teenager who failed speech class due to my inability to speak in front of others, I suddenly found myself speaking in front of rooms full of doctors and healthcare professionals in my career.
Many people blame cheating and adultery on the weakness of the man. They blame it on the temptations that he's around every day.... The truth is that many men cheat for a very different reason - a reason that many women and men aren't even aware of until it's too late. He is left not knowing why he destroyed something good, and she is left with a big hole in her heart, unsure if she will ever be able to trust again. The reason that I discuss in this audiobook is one that pretty much ensures that he will cheat again...
Ever since the DSM scale to differentiate personality disordered individuals was created, there have likely been relationships between men and women who have narcissistic personality-disordered and borderline personality-disordered personalities. It might seem that this dynamic duo shouldn't last, or shouldn't get together at all, but there is a lot of evidence that these relationships can and do work for a number of couples, who are quite happy in their unions.
