I fell in love with a “Malignant Narcissist”, twice!!
Nearly a decade ago, I developed “The Red Flag Society”.
While sitting around a bonfire with some friends, a topic came up about
“How we see the red flags in life and at times choose to ignore them”.
Thinking this was an interesting topic, I started to do some research. Many people wonder why things happen in their life, even when they acknowledge that they saw a Red Flag and chose to ignore it!
In toxic relationships, there are many red flags that come about that we choose to ignore, however what occurs during these relationships are trauma bonding, chemical attractions, soulless ties and familiarity. Some of these reasons are why we chose to ignore those little things that were really big ones in the making.
“All Shook Up, Again” became my story. It didn’t happen once, but twice…
Cognitive Dissonance played a heavy hand in keeping me wrapped up in this chaos and manipulations with the same narcissist, again!
Through the years, the information that I’ve studied about toxic relationships has been shared on The Red Flag Society sites. Over the years, I’ve received hundreds of messages from followers that have thanked me for collecting this information and putting it all in one place for them to read when it was needed. It started to click within me, that the story was already the same, it just had different actors and actresses.
I named the author of these blogs Echo. As in Greek Mythology, Echo had lost her right to have her “own” voice when she fell deeply in love with Narcissus. This was a curse, quite like one we go under when we fall in love with a narcissist. I have been writing in my journals throughout the years, just trying to keep straight what the reality was, verses what my narcissist tried to project the reality to be. I found myself fall many times into his version, despite knowing his version changed daily.
“All Shook Up, Again” will be released shortly. Within the pages is a raw verse of experiences that one goes through when riding shotgun on Mr. Toad’s ride. Honestly the ups and downs of loving a malignant narcissist will change your life. A true narcissist is textbook and once you catch their rhythm, they are easily read.
I hope you enjoy my blog and find some of the information written helpful, enlightening and informative. It is riddle with my writings from the heart, to information and my interpretation as to why I fell in love and remained with my narcissist through the years.
I thought I was “all shook up” the first time around, but then it happened “again”.
Same Narcissist, same story, nothing changed again… except me!
We can never shed the experience, but we can share it with others that may need to know they are not the only ones that go through this.
Enjoy my Blog!
