No doubt, one of the most painful chapters of your life was your experience with a malignant narcissist. It’s over now. But you’re dealing with the aftershocks. They’re painful, beyond words. But why does the aftermath of abuse hurt so much? What is it about this experience that leaves our hearts shattered, in a million pieces?
Some essential oils I can’t live without. (Or at least I’d have a hard time living without them.) So I buy them repeatedly. These essential oils have a wide range of uses. I used them for natural pain control, as well as natural stress reduction. Versatile essential oils can also be used in DIY cleaning

Those of us who’ve spent time with a morally disordered person can’t help but notice their hypocritical behavior. Narcissists love to make rules. But only for others to follow. They set impossibly high standards, which no mere moral is ever capable of living up to. Plus, the goal lines are always moving. Even if you
I’ve received MANY nasty comments regarding essential oils. There very fact that so many brands exist is a source of controversy. Some people cling to the belief that you must buy a certain brand.

Inflammation is nasty stuff. I’m not talking about healthy inflammation. This is what kicks in when we have an illness or a wound. This is a normal process, one that’s needed for healing.
