A Video Interview for Narcissist Abuse Support
“Why didn’t you leave?”
“Why didn’t you leave sooner?”
These are questions people sometimes ask, and questions we even ask ourselves. There are so many reasons why people don’t leave sooner, and yet it can be difficult to explain to someone who has never been in one of these relationships.
In this video, Tracy Malone from Narcissist Abuse Support at www.narcissistabusesupport.com interviewed me and she and I discussed the many reasons why it’s so hard for men and women to leave abusive relationships, particularly if they’re with individuals who have exhibited narcissistic behavior patterns.
You’ll hear us discuss the physical barriers and the emotional turmoil surrounding leaving the relationship. We also expand on many of the ideas I’ve talked about in some of the articles on my blog, such as the psychological tactics that make it difficult to leave.
I hope you enjoy this video.
The workbook Tracy references at the end of the video about things to think about when it comes to preparing to leave a narcissist can be found here.
There are also many other tools on the website at Narcissist Abuse Support, to help understand, support, and survive relationships with narcissists and thrive in the aftermath.
If you could tell people about something about narcissistic abuse and why you didn’t leave, what would you want them to know? Please feel free to add your voice to the conversation and comment below.
