One thing so many of us subjected to narcissistic abuse want more than anything is validation. We’ve been ignored & invalidated so long, we’re starving for validation. It’s very normal to feel that way. Unfortunately, it also can be very hard to come by!
Many people don’t want to hear our stories, because they say it’s “too negative”, they don’t believe us (in all fairness, the things narcissists do sound so crazy it can be hard to believe), maybe they don’t believe narcissism is a real thing or that it’s so incredibly commonplace, or maybe they know the narcissist & don’t believe that person to be capable of doing the things you say she/he did to you. It can be super frustrating because we aren’t making this stuff up (honestly.. who really is that creative?!) & we’re so starved for validation
Then there is the narcissist. We would love validation…
