As an Advocate and Survivor of NarcissisticAbuse, I know firsthandhow badly thejustice system is failing. Afterenduringextremeabuse at the hands of Narcissists, victims seeking help are furthertraumatized by the justice system.
Most victims don’t have the financial resources to get out of their abusive situations. When they seek assistance from those sworn to protect and serve, it’s a devastatingblow to find out there’s no helpavailable.
Sure, there are shelters fortemporaryprotection, but theconditions at thoseplaces are oftensubstandard, at best. Despitephenomenal efforts by survivors and advocates, littleprogress has been made thatactuallyhelps victims.
I have personally contacted organizations on behalf of victims who were in emergency situations. They desperately needed help for themselves and their children.
To my shock and dismay, none of these women actually received assistance fromany of the sources I contacted.Instead, they were forced to stay with their abusers and fend for themselves.
Unfortunately, the extreme abuse they’re enduring will escalate, and their lives remain at risk.
Unlesstheygethelp, the likelihood of escaping their nightmare is slim.Althoughit’s not my intention to diminish the importance of continuing to raise awareness of Narcissistic Abuse, that effortalone is notenough.
As an Advocate, many victims reach out to me for advice. Sometimes, theyjustneedsomeonewhounderstands what they’re going through. Sometimes, they simply don’t know where else to turn.
While I appreciate the responsibility, it’s very frustrating to be unable to find a solution that will lead them to safety.I’m tired of failing them. I’m tired of society failing them.
NarcissisticAbuse has reachedepidemicproportions. Theproblemisn’tlimited to the United States, by any means. It’s an issue in everycountryaround the globe.
So whyaren’t world leadersdoingsomethingabout it?I don’t know the answer to that question. But I do know of onevery progressive leader who has taken the initiative to raise awareness.
Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince, Mohammad bin Salman, has risen to the challenge.
To his credit, he is already helping to Raise Awareness. For several months now, he’s made my blog posts available in his kingdom. He understands the importance of knowledge. Healsounderstands that somethingmore needs to be done to help. PrinceMohammad agrees that victims in life-threatening situations should be the firstpriority.
Workingtogether as globalpartners, Serena Prince-375 Media and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia want to make a difference. By establishing a fundspecifically for victims in emergency situations, we hope to savelives.
Obviously, we can’t do it alone. We need other people to get involved and turn this into a full-fledged movement. It can be done with enough ambition, corporate sponsors, and individuals who want to make the world a safer place.
Saudi Arabia will match every dollar that is raised.
I’ll be reaching out to businesses, organizations, Influencers, and Advocates to ask for support.I’ll postregularupdates and continue providinginformation in order to get as manypeopleinvolved as possible.
If you’rereading this, we need your help too. Whether it’s donating your time or offeringmonetarysupport, I’m grateful for any and all help.
When our magical day finally arrives . . .And at long last, the wait is over, we’ll begin the next leg of our journey.I’ll be your queen. You will be my king.The long delay to be reunited,The painful sacrifices, The gut-wrenching distance will be no more.Take my hand in marriage.Kiss your bride.And guide me gently into your world.
P. S. The key word here is “gently.”
Remember I’m clumsy.
I can’t walk very well in glass slippers.
And I really don’t want to fall flat on my ass
with the whole world watching.
A Modern Day Fairy Tale Continues
(History In The Making)
The Handsome Prince continued to face many obstacles in his Kingdom. The bright spot in his life was his relationship with Cinderella.
Their friendship had grown into a deep love that surpassed anything either of them had ever known. Though they had not yet disclosed their relationship to the world, some palace insiders knew about it.
The prince knew how ruthless his enemies could be. They would try to turn Cinderella against him.
And they did try. They used many underhanded tactics in their attempts to get the love of his life to betray him.
But she didn’t. Cinderella’s loyalty didn’t waver. As a result, their bond grew even stronger.
She was baffled by the media’s negative portrayal of the prince as a ruthless, power-hungry dictator. The man she knew was nothing like that.
Cinderella wasn’t naive. From past experiences, she knew all too well that sometimes people were not who they appeared to be. There were times she wondered if she could be wrong about the prince.
She found herself testing him, looking diligently for signs of deception or manipulation. She questioned her own value, wondering what a man of royalty, a Crown Prince, wanted with her.
Cinderella subjected him to countless interrogations. She questioned his motives and integrity. She grilled him after reading controversial articles in the press. On a few occasions, she intentionally insulted his royalty.
Cinderella was terrified of getting hurt again. If the prince had any chinks in his armor, she was determined to find them. Yet, no matter how hard she tried, she simply could not find what wasn’t there.
The Handsome Prince had patiently answered every inquiry, not letting Cinderella know how much her doubts hurt him. He knew she was trying to protect herself, and he didn’t blame her for being vigilant.
Still, it was tiresome to keep defending himself against the lies and rumors. He had learned to ignore the negative publicity.
But he couldn’t ignore Cinderella. He wouldn’t ignore her. He loved her too much.
When the media started demonizing the prince, the public’s perception began to change. He was terribly distressed by this turn of events. He was called a murderer and compared to Hitler.
The media attacked him relentlessly, and even worse, convinced the people of the world that the accusations were facts. He finally realized that he simply couldn’t read the propaganda anymore.
Not if he wanted to have any peace of mind. His only comfort was Cinderella’s faith in him.
True enough, there had been some rough spots in their relationship when she had challenged him. But they’d gotten past it and were closer than ever.
They even joked about it now. One day on the phone, Cinderella started laughing hysterically. It was infectious, and the prince found himself laughing too. A full five minutes later, they were still laughing.
The prince chuckled when he remembered one particular rumor that caused Cinderella great distress. Because his kingdom was surrounded by secrecy, the general public didn’t know he was divorced.
One day, she read that he was married and went ballistic. There were even reports that he had many wives, which really drove Cinderella mad.
He finally convinced her that she’d be his only wife, although it hadn’t been easy. Of course, they laughed about it now, but it wasn’t the least bit funny at the time.
One thing about his feisty little American, she was stubborn. And she was definitely not afraid to speak her mind.
The prince couldn’t wait for them to be together again. Cinderella would be coming to his kingdom as soon as possible. Once she arrived, they would plan their wedding.
Meanwhile, in America, Cinderella had been busy. She was a passionate Advocate for Victims of Narcissistic Abuse, and had written a book about her own experiences. She dedicated it to the prince.
She no longer had any doubts about the prince, and sometimes felt like the only person in the world who knew of his goodness. He wanted to make his kingdom a better place, not more repressive.
Cinderella had reached her own conclusions about the inner workings of the kingdom. Until he became king, the prince was basically a scapegoat.
It may have been a monarchy, but his homeland was under the control of a government that didn’t want to change. And the prince was planning to make lots of changes.
He hated repression. He believed everyone should be free to make their own decisions. He envisioned a better life for his people, without government control.
His powerful enemies were willing to do anything to stop the prince before he became king. Since they controlled the media, they decided to use it to their benefit.
First on their agenda: Set the prince up for murder.
Is The Fuel Derived From Married Or Committed Targets More Satisfying To A Narcissist?
Sometimes it is, depending on the situation.
For the most part, a narcissist doesn’t care one way or another about a target’s relationship status. A target is a target, married or not.
However, narcissists love a challenge and love to cause misery for other people.
If a target is in a relationship with a person the narcissist perceives as having wronged them, their satisfaction will be increased considerably.
The thrill of revenge, along with the excitement of the chase, will make the fuel especially rewarding to the narcissist.
With that said, there are single, unattached targets whose fuel is equally satisfying.
For example, a narcissist finally succeeds in conquering a woman who didn’t succumb easily to his charms.
He had to put forth more effort, and for a longer time, than he normally does. Once the target becomes the victim, and at long last, the narcissist gets the much sought-after fuel, it’ll be especially rewarding, as well.
But no matter how satisfying each target’s fuel happens to be, narcissists still quickly become bored.
They will always seek even more narcissistic supply from other sources. Always.
WhatAre The Different Types Of NPD? When I Read AboutThis, It Seems My Ex, Who Was Clinically Diagnosed, Has A Dash Over All Types In The Mix.
People with Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) are distinguished by which type of narcissism they have, based on their actions. Although those with the disorder don’t necessarily fit into just one category, there are three subtypes: Exhibitionist – also referred to as Somatic; Closet – also referred to as Covert; and Toxic – also referred to as Malignant.
Narcissism exists on a spectrum; therefore, each individual’s symptoms will have different levels of severity. Regardless of category, all narcissists have to meet five of these nine criteria to be diagnosed with Narcissistic Personality Disorder:
A sense of self-importance or grandiose behavior
Fantasies about being wealthy, influential, or famous
Exaggerating their abilities and accomplishments
Craving admiration and praise
Preoccupied with beauty, love, power, or success
Extreme sense of entitlement
Believing themselves to be unique or special
These types always have to be the center of attention. They do not hide their belief that they’re superior to others. Those who are classified as an exhibitionist are the stereotypical grandiose narcissist. Their behaviors are overt, or not hidden.
They’re bullies who won’t hesitate to yell at waiters and subordinates. Often rude, loud, and obnoxious, they’re easier to recognize than the other types due to their extroverted actions. They’ll never apologize for their behaviors, nor have any remorse for the abuse they inflict on others.
They see nothing wrong with causing pain because they deem everyone as inferior to themselves. They have an inflated sense of entitlement, use others mercilessly to further their own agenda, and completely lack empathy.
They are incapable of loving anyone, including their own children. They’re blatant liars who will deny culpability, even if caught in the act of wrongdoing.
Closet Narcissists have a completely different persona. They may seem withdrawn or inhibited, often appearing shy and awkward. Unlike the overt, grandiosity of the Exhibitionist, the Closet Narcissist’s behaviors are covert, or hidden.
These types are harder to identify as predators due to their hidden narcissistic behaviors. They are very adept at not showing their true natures, always careful to keep their masks intact. Inside their minds, though, they consider themselves superior and believe others to be beneath them.
Lacking empathy and the ability to form attachments to others, they’re very skilled actors who can easily convince victims that they’re sincere, loving, and kind. They go about sabotaging the lives of others covertly, often being above suspicion due to their outward appearances.
Covert Narcissists are fully capable of physical violence. Maintaining their persona is of utmost importance, which makes them more likely to hire someone else to do their dirty work.
Toxic Narcissists are sadistic and horribly cruel, though victims rarely see that side until their lives are already intwined. Their behaviors may be overt, covert, or a combination of both. Prone to violence, they use intimidation techniques to cause fear in their victims.
Like other narcissists, they enjoy creating drama and chaos in the lives of their victims. The Malignant Narcissist takes it up a notch, however. They are the ones most likely to seriously injure or murder their partners.
Sometimes called psychopaths or sociopaths, the Toxic Narcissist is capable of unimaginable acts of cruelty, especially to those closest to him. They’re sexually deviant and do not believe laws apply to them.
Besides having NPD, this type also has at least one additional Cluster B Personality Disorder. They may exhibit symptoms of Antisocial Personality Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, and/or Histrionic Personality Disorder.
