Many recovering victims of narcissistic abuse struggle with the dilemma of whether or not to hold the narcissist accountable for his behavior. We also struggle with whether or not to forgive our abuser. We learn in our recovery that narcissism is a personality disorder, and wonder “Isn’t having a personality disorder the same thing as having a mental illness? And if so, how can we hold a mentally ill person responsible for their actions?”
For today's show I’ll be talking about the true accountability of those with Narcissistic Personality Disorder, a topic that survivors of NPD find very confusing. One of the things that make it so confusing is that we were programmed to feel sorry for and make excuses for our abuser. We were also conditioned to blame ourselves for the abuse directed at us. We were brainwashed to feel guilty and punish ourselves instead of holding the Narcissist accountable for their actions.
After listening to today's show you will have a clearer picture of the narcissist's accountability and a better idea of how to move forward in your recovery.
