Belief, Thought, Action

People who undergo narcissistic abuse, and/or are victims of “emotional incest” over prolonged periods, often develop ailments similar to that of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and Complex-PTSD.

Such people will often be living within the trap of Cognitive Dissonance. It keeps them “trapped in the cycle” of narcissistic abuse, abusive relationships, and often remain bonded to “unhealthy” family members.

Consistent or regular irrational thoughts, beliefs, and mismatching of actions, are strong indicators of those who are “caught” in such cycles.
