This is the at the centre of most of the pain and trauma of Narcissistic Abuse for those who are/have been victims or are on the path to or are now survivors. What is this? The need to reclaim the “self” that you have now lost to one degree or another. For some, who were the child and then the adult child of a Borderline, Narcissist, or Psychopath (or a dark triad as my father was) this traumatized pain you are in requires the healing journey (often from CPTSD) of “claiming” “self” for the first time in people’s lives.
