This was a pleasant surprise because although I have written several articles about my own experiences with narcissists, I never expected to be recognized for having finally recovered enough to be recognized as someone who was healing, rather than continuing to wallow in their bullshit.
And I am recovering and I am moving onwards and UPwards.
A lady I look to as my mentor awarded me. Her blog was one of the first I encountered that made sense to me and I realized she was also open and available to answer my questions. Since our first contact I have gotten to know her as a person, as well as a writer and I look forward to the day she and I can meet and share a real live hug together. There are days that she actually gave me back my sanity and my dignity, by simply responding to a comment or a message. She is incredibly amazing and I am grateful to have found her.
She is Paula from Paula’s Pontifications.
I am a Narcissist Slayer.
Now I’d like to tell you a little about myself and pass along this award to some folks I think are deserving of this award too. Here are the responsibilities of this award…
2. Place the award logo on my blog. you bet your bippy! and with giddy joy!!
3. Write a blog post and nominate other blogs for the award – there is no minimum or maximum number of blogs required to nominate. I’m on it! and here they are!!
4. Inform my nominees on their site that I have chosen them for the honor. working on it!
5. Share one positive thing I took away from my relationship with the Narcissist. where do I start?
There are so many positive outcomes from my own experiences. I know that some folks might think it’s all been horrifying and awful, but because of my own experiences, I have grown exponentially.
Having had this occur in my life made me finally sit up and take responsibility for my own participation in the narc dance.
I finally have clear and healthy boundaries and I finally know how to see a good person and make the right kinds of friends. I don’t think I am immune to narcs, but I am aware of them now and that is the best defense anyone could ever hope to have when dealing with a malignant personality disorder.
Here’s hoping that anyone that is currently suffering from the shenanigans of a narcissist finds one of us out here that’s been there, done that and written the story about it so that they can begin to slay the narcs in their lives too. Be safe out there!!
