Narcissist Barriers to Leaving

In any abusive relationship we are often asked “why did we stay” In this video I will review 19 reasons people stay in an abusive relationship. It is my hope that in learning the official reasons why people stay you can better understand and possibly forgive yourself for staying with a narcissist.
Perhaps it was love? perhaps it was fear of being alone, or possibly the reasons that the abuser has planted in your head, guilt, shame, failure, or financial.


I’m a survivor of Narcissistic abuse and my goal with this channel is to educate other “victims” as they transition to becoming a “survivor”. I believe that education is our best way to heal, and the best way to not become a victim or supply to another narcissist. These videos are a healing part of my personal journey and while no animals were hurt in the making of these videos these are representations of the two relationships I have had and discovering after 55 years that my mother was a narcissist.

Please note: I am not a therapist, psychologist, psychiatrist or coach so use this information as my own personal journey of healing and the information that has been shared with me by friends, other YouTubers, groups and community. This video is not intended to treat or diagnose any condition, if you believe you or a loved one is suffering from narcissistic abuse please use seek any help from your community.
