The Glimpse of Trauma

Trauma of narcissistic abuse

I’ve experienced a weird phenomenon throughout my life. Very rare, but often enough not to go unnoticed. I am not even sure how to describe it…. It is a sudden, irrational sense of utter sadness, loneliness and pain. A completely unknown and yet so known and unnamed.

Context

Feeling sadness is a common response to narcissistic trauma, as individuals who have experienced narcissistic abuse often go through a range of intense emotions. The narcissistic individual’s manipulative, controlling, and emotionally abusive behavior can cause the person to feel confused, hurt, and betrayed, leading to feelings of sadness and despair.

Additionally, the constant criticism, invalidation, and belittling by the narcissistic individual can damage the person’s self-esteem and sense of self-worth, leading to feelings of inadequacy and worthlessness. This can also contribute to feelings of sadness and hopelessness.

If you are experiencing sadness as a result of narcissistic trauma, it can be helpful to seek support from a therapist or counselor who can help you process your emotions and work through the pain and hurt caused by the narcissistic individual. It may also be beneficial to engage in self-care activities, such as exercising, meditating, or engaging in hobbies, to help manage and reduce feelings of sadness.
