By laura charanza
but discovered your partner is Jekyll and Hyde. Your fantasy life just evolved into a nightmare, and your other half tells you it’s because you can’t get it right. You feel like no one will understand, and your partner says that’s the case. You are cray and destined to be a failure. Would you believe it’s not you?
With this book you’ll travel through decades of narcissistic abuse with a survivor. You’ll learn about the narcissist’s tactics and how to recognize psychological abuse. Laura offers solutions and explains how her own journey led to a life of peace and love.
“The author also includes pragmatic advice on how to get a divorce, and on helping victims of narcissistic abuse, and their children, recover. The types of therapies, including some newer modalities, are described. Spiritual aspects are nicely considered. In other words, the book offeres not only nuts-and-bolts help, but hope.”

As a psychologist, I see both men and women in abusive relationships with narcissists, but they inevitably blame themselves. Only after time (and often therapy), do they realize that ‘they’ are not the problem. The road to health and rebuilding can be ardurous and long. Laura Charanza describes the abuse and situations in a uniquely insighfully way. Ms. Charanza, as an author; has a style that is easy to read and relate to. For someone who is, or thinks they may be, in a relationship with a narcissist, this is a must-read. This is one of the best books I have read on surviving a relationship with a narcissist.
