Narcissistic Abuse


Narcissistic abuse is a form of emotional and psychological abuse characterized by manipulation, exploitation, and control. This type of abuse can be extremely damaging and is often inflicted by someone with Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD). NPD is a mental health condition that causes a person to have an inflated sense of self-importance and an extreme need for admiration and validation from others.

In a relationship with a narcissistic partner, the abuse can take many forms. It might involve gaslighting, demeaning or belittling the victim, controlling their finances or activities, isolating them from friends and family, and undermining their sense of self-worth and agency. The abuser may also use threats or physical abuse to maintain control.

Another characteristic of a narcissistic partner is that they present a facade of charm and generosity to the outside world, while behaving in a destructive manner behind closed doors. This camilion like behavior makes it hard for the victim to seek help, because they may feel that no one will believe them.

How does narcissistic abuse effect you?

Narcissistic abuse can have long-lasting and devastating effects. You may experience anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and feelings of worthlessness. You may also doubt your own perception of reality, or have a hard time understanding why you feel so unhappy or helpless. Due to the hidden nature of the abuse, you may also experience a sense of confusion or disorientation as well.

Narcissistic abuse unfolds in a very subtle manner, making it difficult to recognize. In most situations, before the truth of the abuse is exposed, the damage is already done.

As Christian women, it is essential to understand the truth about this type of abuse and how it can impact your life. Many narcissist not only use common tactics of manipulation, but they use religion or spirituality as well. This tactic is highly effective within the church amongst single women who desire a God fearing partner. This wolf in sheep clothing tactic is simply another way of controlling unsuspecting Christian women who believe they are in relationship with a true man of God.

Unfortunately, this is not the case…

But in many cases, you may have opened yourself up to a man who cares nothing about you or Jesus Christ, despite his pretentious prayers or the proclamation of his faith.
