Empaths are high ly perceptive, exquisitely sensitive individuals. They are attuned to their external and internal environments. Tehy feel deeply and are often misunderstood by spouses, family members and the world at large.
Empaths who are married or partnered with high level narcissists have a particularly difficult journey.
In this situation with a high level narcissist the empath is accumulating tremendous amounts of oxidative stress.
Many of you grew up as children of a narcissistic parent or both mother and father. Demands and reprimands were daily occurrences. Narcissistic mother and fathers gave you the message that you didn't and couldn't measure up to lowest expectations. You felt irredeemably flawed. For making great efforts to obtain any real attention, warmth, attachment, acceptance never work. You were looked upon with scorn and disgust. No one in your family understood you.
Married to a high level narcissist you are at the mercy of their recriminations, criticisms, projections. There is a time of awakening when you can no longer tolerate being controlled by the high level narcissist.
You come to a time of awakening, an opening to your authentic original self. You practice self care, explore your creativity, learn to access the calming, parasympathetic body/mind systems. I give you so much credit for restoring your original sense of self and now stand tall: grounded, gifted, going strong.
