Publisher's Summary

It's okay to have needs of your own

You fell in love with him. But over time you've come to realize he's in love with himself - and you feel trapped. His needs, his problems, and his plans always seem to take precedence over yours. Dr. David Hawkins, director of the Marriage Recovery Center, offers a guide to help you identify signs of narcissism, understand how your loved one's issues are affecting you, and prepare a biblical game plan for freeing yourself to live courageously in light of God's love.

Whether the man in your life can be diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder (NPD), exhibits narcissistic traits and emotionally abusive behavior, or has arrogant and self-centered tendencies, the emotional pain he causes you is very real. Discover the truths, wisdom, and grace you need to spark change in your relationship, set boundaries, and experience healing.

The book I so desperately needed to read

I’m a Christian woman married to a “believing” man with lots of narcissistic traits. I’ve struggled to decide what next moves to make to keep myself and my children on a healthy path. I’ve been convicted about how I’ve been dealing with things as well. I wanted biblical perspective... and I got it here. I’ve read countless articles and books on the topic. But none have been as helpful, for me anyway. I highly recommend this to anyone struggling with narcissism in their relationships. It’s been eye opening to say the least. I have more clarity and a better take on what changes I need to make.

Outstanding perspective!

This book is a perfect match in every way to my experiences and I am shocked at how someone who hasn't experienced it first hand can portray such detailed truths in this writing. Been looking for a two sided approach to the solutions and this was it. Wonderful!!

loved it

explained in a way that really radiated with me and gave me even more biblical profound insight to some issues I'm dealing with concerning my spouse and also myself. we are both accountable for our actions and reactions! I'm listening again.

This book helped me to understand Narcissism.

This book helped me to understand Narcissism and to see how not just my partner has these attributes, but so do I. I didn't give five stars total because I wish it would've gone more indepth about the reactions partners can have and how codependency can evolve in these relationships as well.

A must read!

if you are in an emotionally abusive relationship or living with a narcissist this book is a 100% must read book. It helps you realize everything you are experiencing and helps you see that it's not you and it truly is the other person causing the crazy making. It helps you identify warning signs it helps you indicate signs to see if the person is really changing and it helps you to search out a path to find yourself again. I couldn't wait to get into my vehicle and listen to the book each time! the timing of finding this book in my life was perfect in that it helped me make a critical decision to live my life and to let go of the person who is unwilling to change their behavior. I can't recommend this book more highly if you are in a relationship with a narcissist and an emotional verbal abuser.

i felt truly understood

This book is very insightful, helpful, and great at actually laying out how to handle setting boundaries with these kinds of people.
Scapegoating, and Secondary abuse are REAL and now i have a name for them instead of thinking maybe I was overreacting when treated these ways!! my eyes have been opened more, for that i am thankful and am working on my voice.
