Thursday June 1st is World Narcissistic Abuse Awareness Day. This sounds like just another one of those obscure days that people invent as an excuse for a card.
However whether we realise it or not, it is a day which should concern all of us.
I sincerely doubt that there is one person who has never been affected by toxic abuse in their lives. It can happen at home, at work or even during leisure activities.
If you encounter an issue which you want to clear up with somebody and come away scratching your head, having somehow found yourself apologizing when you had initially believed it was you who had been wronged, there is a strong possibility you have just encountered a toxic person.
Here is what Dr Phil has to say on the subject:
Narcissists exist on a spectrum. Some are relatively harmless and pass through your life without appearing to have had a negative impact, whilst others can turn your whole world upside down, leaving you sick, broke maybe homeless and in some cases suicidal. All the while they go about their lives unperturbed as if nothing has happened.
