Narcissist Strips Your Dignity

Standard

Overcoming Narcissistic Abuse

image chef dignityThe narcissist wants to strip you of your dignity. They want to crush your self esteem. 

You do not have to believe what they tell you or feel the way they want you to feel. The words of a narcissist are designed to evoke an emotional reaction from you. They feed off of your negative feelings. 

Making you cry and making you angry makes the narcissist and the psychopathic narcissist feel powerful. It is fuel to make them exist in the powerful way they want to. 

Once you escape these feelings of lo self esteem and lack of dignity will try to stay with you. The narcissist systematically programmed these feelings into your subconscious. 

The way you hold your body has an effect on your sympathetic nervous system. If your posture is the same as when the narcissist was demeaning you, then those feelings will automatically be triggered.

What’s Fabulicious today? Rejection.

Standard

Oh readers, I can hear you now. “Rejection is Fabulicious? PUH-leze.”

Well, I admit, I was rejected today. I’m a writer, and I almost got a really nice paying gig. I made it through two rounds of interviews where the client seemed enthusiastic. In fact. the last interviewer even told me the name of the “top-tier” person I’d be speaking with next–the last person I’d need to impress before everything was a go.

Then suddenly, and before I even met The Decider, I get this: “Thanks, but we’ll pass.” No explanation beyond that. Oy.

Now, I could be all frustrated and pissed at the universe. But I’m not. Ever since my rejection today, I’ve been thinking about that Sex and the City episode where Carrie discovers she’s been dumped–by reading Berger’s Post-it note. Cruel? Of course. But Carrie’s a survivor. She doesn’t mope. She goes right to her girlfriends for support.

At least I was rejected in person. They were polite, and I was, too. And at the risk of sounding cliché, maybe it just wasn’t meant to be.

So IMHO, rejection is Fabulicious, because if you look at it the right way, it won’t defeat you. It makes you stronger. Look at Carrie. She didn’t get her Berger. But she did eventually get her Mr. Big.

How have you handled rejection? Feel free to share in replies.
