The Narcissistic Injury Emotional Hurt

Someone says or does something that hurts deeply. You feel unseen, betrayed, invalidated, or simply criticized. You may feel it’s unfair or that you deserve it. Either way, you are having a tough time recovering.

It eats at you. The hurt somehow sticks. You feel ashamed that you can’t just let it go. Or respond in a healthy way. So you either nurse the wound privately, or you lash back in an over-reaction.

  • This is the Narcissistic Injury.
  • It’s common – and you need not be a Narcissist to feel its sting.

In this post, Heather Edwards gives us ways to recover.
