Adult Children of Alcoholics often times attract partners who are very much like one of their dysfunctional parents. Even thought their partners might not drink, they may exhibit signs of passive aggressiveness, narcissism, manipulative personality traits and so on.
When we are friends with ACoA’s who are struggling with these types of relationships, we may wish to help them detach–pull away–set up boundaries–and to just stop engaging the narcissist. But very often, adult children of alcoholics do not have the mature coping skills needed to stop engaging the narcissists.
As a Life Coach, one of the primary struggles I come across in ACoA’s is their weak boundary structures. Because ACoA’s have been taught to disown their feelings, they never developed the proper boundaries they deserved to help them protect Self Psychologically, or Self Emotionally or Self Physically.
Like a damn with a wide tear in it–ACoA’s leak their energy through these damages/wounds and sadly attract emotional vampires who are more than willing to dance in the ACoA’s blood.
This video is for anyone struggling to help the ACoA who has not yet learned to hold onto her/himself, and who is still engaging in harming dialogue and relationships with others who are more than willing to gaslight them–and suck their emotional blood.
