How Communication with a Narcissist Fails
As a mom trying to co-parent with my ex — an angry narcissist — I found myself failing to get my message through to him. Not only that, but he used our parental communication not to coordinate things for our child but rather to attack me, which is what I call “co-parenting abuse” (see my blog about Co-Parenting Abuse). I suffered interacting with him—in this failed way—for almost a decade. However, I turned this all around and stopped the abuse using what I call, “skillful means”. Now, enjoying my peace, I want to share this with every mom who can benefit.
With every situation containing thousands of nuances, my hope is that you are able to glean principles that will apply and give relief to your specific situation. I share my wisdom as a survivor hoping that what has helped me might help you. Please note that I can’t advise you legally nor therapeutically as I don’t have those professional degrees. Be sure to check with your attorney and have the support of a skilled DV (domestic violence) counselor or therapist to guide you through all communications with your ex – even if you are not in a custody battle, someday you may be and your texts, voicemails, and emails can become evidence displayed at a custody hearing and trial.
If you are ready to start learning my methods that worked for me to get peaceful co-parenting, I am ready to teach. Take what you can, and leave the rest for maybe another time.
Learn all you can.
Survivor-wisdom is so valuable.
