In this episode we’ll explore love-bombing AKA idealization and how that fits into the abuse cycle. This is so important for you to be able to break through the Cognitive Dissonance.
You’ll finally understand why you felt so addicted to the relationship and had such a hard time accepting that the abuser is an abuser.
You’ll also find out about the flipside of idealization and how you might be internalizing the abuse training by idealizing the abuser and others or comparing yourself to others and holding yourself to an unrealistic expectation of perfection.
You’ll get some tips for avoiding the love-bombing sickness and addiction. These tips will help you build immunity to narcissistic abuse.
How do narcissistic predators test the boundaries of their victims? Why do victims tend to ignore red flags early on? And what does childhood abuse have to do with this? In this episode, I explore why we tend to ignore our inner guidance and how we can start to tap into the intuition that could save our lives.
