A parasitic narcissist is a merciless taker, feeding off of your emotional and psychological attachment to them, your vulnerability and dependency. They steal your physical and psychological energy and exploit your creative gifts.

The narcissist puts you in fight or flight mode, the sympathetic nervous system zone which causes oxidative stress. When prolonged it disrupts the endocrine and adrenal systems, can cause extreme exhaustion, chronic insomnia, gut dysbiosis and weakening your immune system.

Over many years of being ruthlessly victimized by the parasitic narcissist you are always exhausted, lack energy and yur self-assertion has diminished with your confidence, your creative gifts lie fallow, you have severe mood shifts, feel depressed and anxious most of the time.

How to break free from the parasitic narcissist:

Research and stud the origins and psychodynamics of the narcissistic personality. Read my books: Freeing Yourself From the Narcissist in Your Life, Recovering and Healing After the Narcissist.

Let go of the shame and doubt that has bound you from childhood through daily practice of self care: sleep, rest, downtime,, using your creative gifts, movement and exercise that works best for you.

Use your inner wisdom and intuition to continually protect yourself from entering into relationships with narcissistic personalities.
