Episode 29: What are Abandonment Cycles and how does the Narcissist use them on you? Reddit Bonus: Narcissist's & Their Creepy Eyes!
Greetings to you!
Welcome to my podcast journal where I share my awakening from my narcissist induced nightmare!
Hornswoggled means “to trick or deceive (someone)” and ohhh let me tell you, I have definitely been Hornswoggled and by someone so close to me, for at least the past 20 years. My Mom.
I have decided to share my experience to offer support to others who are going through the same thing my family is.
The content I have found surrounding Narcissistic abuse by professionals and fellow survivors has brought me so much comfort in knowing we are not alone.
This Podcast is meant to share my experience, information I have found helpful and the sources so you can check it out on your own, and share my feelings as I unpack this huge blow, as well as share content that has helped me find answers.
To abandon, leave, or desert someone—either physically or emotionally. The word is typically used in the context of narcissistic abuse when referring to childhood desertion from primary caregivers or another key connection where stable and continual dependency is a legitimate expectation.
The Confusing Narcissistic Cycle of Abandonment and Return
REDDIT for some validation!
I hope each episode I record helps someone else who may be going through a similar situation or knows someone who has. It can be discouraging to many because they feel guilty for airing the dirty deeds done by others, but we should never feel shamed into silence.
I would also Like to add, that I feel it is very important for us not to take on the identity of what was done to us, but instead identify as a person who is overcoming what was done to us as we grow closer to our true self and not the victim role our abuser wants us to be imprisoned in.
We don’t want to become the same monster we are trying to heal from.
