Carmella & The Misogynistic Narcissistic Abuser | Coercive Control, Narcissist Abuse

Play episode

In this episode of Narcissist Apocalypse, Carmella recounts how she found unexpected support from an engaged man during a personal crisis. Their friendship blossomed into romance and a pressured proposal, highlighting the struggle of reconciling the whirlwind of emotions with societal expectations and personal apprehension. As we further dissect coercive control dynamics, Carmella examines the effects of controlling behaviors and jealousy, the intense pressure to conform, and the emotional repercussions of a marriage shadowed by a husband’s intrusive scrutiny, lack of privacy, and the unequal distribution of domestic responsibilities. Carmella also provides insight into the harrowing effects of escalating physical abuse and control, and the often invisible struggles of co-parenting post-divorce with an uncooperative ex-partner.

It’s a story of misogyny, pushing boundaries, jealousy, entitlement, physical abuse, custody, post separation abuse, court, divorce, narcissists, narcissism, domestic violence, domestic abuse, rage, bullying, lack of responsibility, emotional abuse, putdowns, financial abuse, lying, infidelity, and generational trauma.
