What/who is narcissistabusesupport.com?
Is it a company with numerous scholars and PhDs? Or a brilliant startup based on the horrific trend of narcissist abuse interest because of all the discussion regarding one of our presidential candidates? Is it an effort put out by insurance companies or mental health agencies? How about an education program on a national level to deal with educating our victims, children, therapists, teachers, police, and judges? With the epidemic of domestic violence and terror in our country, I lead two support groups and I educate our next generation about “Red Flags”, “Behaviors” and understanding how to spot a narcissist, how to protect yourself, or to learn what support is out there to help you or a friend. If you are looking for a support group near you visit our list of groups around the world and go join one, because in finding community we are healed.
Like so many of the experts interested in helping others that write books and get published work on Psychology Today or the Huffington Post, the idea for this website was born from a victim of narcissist abuse. To say I even 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 the “YouTube University” when a friend suggested I look up ‘Gaslighting’.
My journey was long overdue, and my perfect life story was crumbling before my very eyes. I started getting involved in support forums, reading blogs and watching 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), and within these last three years I have 17,000 subscribers and over 1,500,000 views. With time I found creative ways to deliver a message. Humbled by my followers – my goal in starting this was solely therapy for myself and documenting my journey – inside I hoped and believed that if I could help just one person, it 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 that provided me with tools that finally helped me without judgment or making me think I was crazy. I then asked myself 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 to the emotionally abused. As I shared the state-by-state directory on the support forums it was great to hear back from group members who had called and been able to receive help thanks to my URL.
WHO IS BEHIND THIS WEBSITE?
So who is behind narcissistabusesupport.com? Me, Tracy A Malone – a victim, surTHRIVER and marketing gal with a small team building this website to raise awareness. People often talk about how when you find your calling in life and if you are willing to jump off the edge of the pool, trusting in God, he will use you to help those good things happen. With no idea of how I will balance my business and my destiny, I simply believe that if I build it and create awareness, people will be helped with the education we have gathered here.
I HAVE A DREAM
My dream is to create this resource to help victims, and share books, blogs, targeted therapists and coaches that can help. Ultimately, I hope to have a blog that is built by experts and bloggers because I think it is only through our education and the sharing of our stories that we can heal.
If you are a therapist or coach able to help victims and you have a good understanding of Narcissistic abuse and would like to add to our directory please fill out this form.
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 search terms narcissists & narcissism is up 1500%; people are pinning, tweeting, sharing, watching and recording, & TEDx talks are often about the many aspects of abuse.
How can we create a movement?
Together! A change in laws and education? Can a country 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 a parent to save their children from one who only wants to use their own kids as pawns to take revenge simply because we know the truth?
Narcissistabusesupport.com is helping us save our children, mothers and fathers from the predator in our house.
