Mercedes & The Devaluing Angry Narcissist – Domestic Violence, Narcissistic Abuse, Emotional Abuse, IPV

Play episode

Brandon talks with Mercedes about her toxic marriage to a controlling manipulative narcissist. It’s a story of competency, self-worth, financial abuse, stalking, and post-separation abuse. It took Mercedes a while to realize that she was living in a prison and that almost every abuse tactic was being used to control her. From gaslighting to brainwashing, nitpicking, name-calling, projection, accusations, blame-shifting, fear, obligation, minimizing, threats, intimidation, physical abuse, and future faking, it was all used until she left and that’s when the insidious post-separation abuse began. Plus they discuss personality types, slowing down, feeling, healing, and much more. *** TRIGGER WARNING – We discuss physical abuse in this episode. ***
