WHO IS BEHIND THIS ENDEAVOR?
Who is behind NarcissistAbuseSupport.com? Me, Tracy A. Malone – a narcissist abuse survival coach, author, victim, and surTHRIVER of narcissistic abuse. I’m a marketing gal with a small team behind me supporting a larger community to raise awareness about the incredibly hurtful abuse that occurs to so many but is spoken about so infrequently.
I have written many books about narcissistic abuse to educate victims on various types of narcissistic relationships such as divorcing a narcissist, narcissistic spouses, narcissistic siblings, narcissistic parents, narcissistic children, co-parenting with a narcissist, narcissistic friends, and a narcissistic boss or coworker. In the industry, I am considered an expert on destructive relationships. My latest self-published book, Divorcing Your Narcissist: You Can’t Make This Shit Up!, was released November 5, 2021, and immediately became a bestseller. I have also created two journal series: The “You Can’t Make This Shit Up” Healing Journals are dedicated to various forms of abuse and toxicity such as divorcing a narcissist, co-parenting with a narcissist, the toxic parenting journey, releasing and healing anger, and setting boundaries, as well as finding gratitude, conquering your fears, letting go, remembering who you are, lessons learned, your next chapter, and your surTHRIVER journey. The “My Texting Heaven” Journals are designed for those who have lost someone, whether by death or a relationship separation of some form but need to keep the line of communication open in order to share important thoughts and feelings to get the necessary closure.
I am a frequent guest at summits and on podcasts and I have built a successful YouTube channel that includes more than 450 videos with an ever-rising subscriber base (currently around 25,500 as of March 2022) and has touched in excess of two and a half million survivors. I am the host of a Facebook group surpassing 15,000 members and my inspirational quotes on Pinterest have seen higher than two million monthly visitors.
What Are We?
Are we a company with numerous scholars and PhDs? No. A brilliant startup based on the horrific trend of narcissist abuse interest because it has become the buzz term of the times? No. Is it an effort put out by insurance companies or mental health agencies? Nope.
We are an education program on an international level dedicated to educating victims, our children, parents, teachers, therapists, police, and judges. In short, we need a complete revamp of our system and way of thinking and I want to help us get there. With the epidemic of domestic violence and terror raging around the world coupled with my own past experiences, I recognized the need to introduce not only important terminology and definitions but also offer educational assistance to those who did not realize they were victims or what they were victims of. No one deserves to live that way. I now offer educational and coaching services on “Red Flags,” “Behaviors” and understanding how to spot a narcissist, “Toxicity,” how to protect yourself from becoming a target, and learn what support is out there to help you or a friend, just to name a few. I am proud to say that this website offers resources to victims in excess of 145 countries.
People often talk about how when you find your calling in life and trust in God, you should take that leap of faith and jump off the edge of the pool – he will not only catch you but also use you to help those who need to hear what you have to say. Good things will happen. With no idea of how I would balance my business and my destiny, I simply believed that if I built it and created awareness, people could be helped with the education we have gathered and continue to gather.
Like so many of the experts interested in helping others who write books and get work published on Psychology Today or the Huffington Post, the idea for this website was organically born from being a victim of narcissist abuse. To say that I knew what Narcissistic Personality Disorder was would be a lie. At the age of 55, I learned about my life in one single “event” that pushed me as low as I could possibly imagine.
I turned to my first video at “YouTube University” when a friend suggested I look up ‘Gaslighting.’ I quickly learned that this journey was long overdue as I watched my perfect life story crumble before my eyes. Desperate to learn more, I started getting involved in support forums, reading blogs, and watching more YouTube. Upon discovering a lifetime of abusive patterns and poor choices, it felt quite natural to get in front of a camera and make my first YouTube video. Looking back at the first videos I made, you will see fear, hurt, shame, confusion, and shock. My channel started with two subscribers (one was me) but as the years tick by, I have seen consistent growth. With time, I found creative ways to deliver a message. I am genuinely humbled by my followers; my original goal was solely therapy for myself and to document my journey but deep inside, I hoped and believed that if I could help just one person, my suffering would all be worth it.
Being lucky enough to find a local Colorado agency that understood abuse, I was able to get ten weeks of counseling from a compassionate, knowledgeable counselor who provided me, without judgment or making me think I was crazy, with the tools that finally helped me. I wondered why it was so hard to find this help and how my experience could help others. This knowledge and research birthed the resource section of this website: the 650 agencies in the USA that offer to counsel the emotionally abused. As I shared the state-by-state and international directory on the support forums that I continually research, feedback came fast and furious from group members who had received help via my URL.
I started and lead two support groups and try to pass my knowledge along in any way that I can. Reaching out to our next generation is a strong desire of mine because if we don’t nip this problem in the bud, it will continue to grow and fester like the cancer that it is. If you are looking for a support group near you, visit our list of groups around the world and go join one. In finding community, we are healed.
I HAVE A DREAM
My dream was always to create this resource to help victims by sharing books, blogs, and targeted therapists and coaches who can help. If you are a therapist or coach who is able to help victims, you have a solid understanding of Narcissistic abuse and would like to be added to our directory, please fill out this form.
I have developed a blog, built by experts and bloggers because I believe that healing only comes through our education and the sharing of our stories.
Narcissistic abuse is growing so fast that we must start to get people educated at a higher level. What if we could teach our teachers, children, therapists, police, and courts? Would there be fewer victims or fewer people on drugs for depression or anxiety? Would our insurance companies support a global conference? Would a television network record the conference and help educate? In Google, the search terms “narcissists” and “narcissism” are up 1500% in just the last few years. People are pinning, tweeting, sharing, watching, and recording about it and TEDx talks are often about the many aspects of abuse. This speaks volumes as to what is on our minds as a whole and what urgently needs to be addressed.
How Can We Create A Movement?
Together! By talking about it. By creating change in our laws and education materials. Can a country (world) take responsibility to help victims by teaching their police and courts how to not allow victims to be REVICTIMIZED by a narcissist? Can power be given to one parent to save their children from the other who only wants to use their own kids as pawns? Can we stop the vengeance plotted against others simply because they know the ugly truth? The time is now. It is critical and bordering on dire necessity.
Narcissistabusesupport.com is helping save our children, mothers and fathers, friends, neighbors, and coworkers from the predator in our homes. Spread the word.
