RELATIONSHIPS

Romantic Relationships can be one of the most wonderful things we experience in our lifetime. We have someone to share important moments with, we find someone who supports us, enjoy activities together and build a foundation with - within time relationships have it’s conflicts

All couples get into arguments but sometimes but when insults, criticism, intimidation, threats, humiliation, shame, name calling, belittling, gas lighting and blackmail come into play the relationship enters a cycle of emotional abuse Signs of emotional or psychological abuse are often more subtle and harder to recognize than those of physical abuse - although the psychological impact of emotional abuse is likely to be as severe as or worse than physical abuse.

SELF ESTEEM

Self-Esteem is the way we feel and view ourselves; our state of mind, the way we feel about our bodies, embracing our strengths and weaknesses, how we carry ourselves and present ourselves to others, how we view our current life and vision for our future – it often sets the tone for other areas in our life. The Healing Project educates individuals on understanding who we are to the core and being in touch with our values, morals and what we hold close to our heart. Sometimes finding our voice isn’t easy but nourishing and learning to be the most authentic version of ourselves can be a gift.

NARCISSISTIC ABUSE

&

PARENTIFICATION

Narcissistic abuse may be emotional, financial, spiritual and even physical abuse.

Abuse may include:

Verbal abuse, shaming, belittling, name-calling, gaslighting, sarcasm, threatening, ordering, manipulation, emotional blackmail, warnings, intimidation, anger, silent treatment, gaslighting which makes you lack trust in your perceptions of reality or ways to make you feel mentally incompetent. Consider the context, nature, and frequency of the behavior before identifying it as narcissistic abuse.

Parental narcissistic abuse is when the parents set expectations for the child to give up their own emotional needs to serve their needs as parent. This may result in alienation, parents lack of providing unconditional love, competition between child, low self esteem in child, goals and desires unfulfilled, and conflicting identity as an individual into adulthood.

Narcissistic abuse also occurs in other relationships (romantic partnerships, coworkers, relatives) where the narcissists seeks out an empathetic individual to fulfil their needs in order to gain power and control (this is also known as the narcissistic supply).

Parentification: is a role reversal where a child is expected to act as a parent to their own parent. Did you ever feel you were left with the responsibility to emotionally care for one or both parents?

There are two types of Parentification:

1. Instrumental parenting: Where a child is left with taking care of responsibilities such as handling finances, providing food, looking after siblings, paying bills etc.
2. Emotional parentification: is when the child is expected to be the confidant or mediator for their parents or other family members
