The Crazy Codependent–When The Narcissists Drive You Nuts and Then You Can’t Stop Yourself

The Crazy Codependent–When The Narcissists Drive You Nuts and Then You Can’t Stop Yourself. Gaslighting, passive-aggressive behavior and being dismissed can drive anyone crazy, and that is normal.

When people are dismissed, lied to, cheated on, and psychologically tortured eventually they will reach a boiling point. When the boiling point is reached, sadly a skilled non-empathic narcissist will turn the situation around on the victim and suggest the victim is losing his or her mind.

It’s not uncommon to feel crazy when you are codependent. When your partner suppresses emotions and you express emotions–chances are you express emotions for both of you–and more often than not–you get labeled the ‘crazy one’ for expressing those emotions.

When we are codependent, we truly have no other way of relating to the world outside the way we tend to enmesh, obsess, enable, people-please, deny our own feelings, worry about what others think about us, and so on. Raised to believe our worth is determined by how well we are able to please others–we spend our lives focused externally–seeking validation and acceptance, as well as in fear of making others angry.

We fail to realize we are locked inside of dynamics we are trying to control but cannot. Often we hear ourselves saying things we know we shouldn’t, but we don’t know how to stop reacting, getting upset, crying, feeling helpless, or from getting sucked in.

If you’ve ever felt crazy, this video is for you!

Lisa A. Romano is a Breakthrough Life Coach who specializes in helping people heal their childhood programming. If you have been raised by alcoholics, narcissists, or if you are struggling with codependency, and have been attracting narcissists into your life these videos will help you unravel the dysfunctional beliefs that are holding you back.

Children of narcissistic parents, who are now suffering with codependency symptoms, may be struggling to learn how to love themselves after narcissistic abuse. Narcissists tend to attract people pleasers, or codependent personalities. Because codependents are eager to please, because they seek outside validation, they are easy targets for narcissistic lovers, and friends.

It is not easy to learn how to love yourself after narcissistic abuse, but with the right codependency recovery tools it is possible. It is even possible to find love after codependency.

    First I have to say that watching these videos has helped me more than counseling has. I'm wondering though…you said that when a partner supresses their emotions, you take them on…does the same apply to your family growing up? They supress emotions that you as a child takes on?

    Donelle Denise Webb-Pillows. In 2017 this is the new hustle so learn for yourself and teach your kiddos that everyone is NOT your friends nor family. Remember; kid's are a sponge and the learning starts at home and around there peers first so be your child's parent and best friend and keep them on there toes by putting them up on the game so they won't be taken advantage of by "FAKE" surrounding them to use to there expose and leisure!!!!!! #LoveConquersAll #MariclesAndBlessings #GodBlessYouAll

Here you are!

    Thank you for your post. I found your channel while I was on my lunch break. I was very upset and crying and praying the God would give me the strength to deal with my situation. I'm currently married to an acholic narcissist and we have two children together. Needless to say my life has been very difficult for the past 13 years. Thank you again for you post.

  • Austin Patterson

    I'm a man and I've been following you off and on for about 7 months. I'm in my 50's and married for over 20 years and I'm just realizing that I've wasted what equates to 15 of those years catering to a narcissistic wife and secretly (through her) a double narcissistic 46 year son living in the basement. It's a textbook situation and I'm trying to figure out how to get the hell out of here before I lose my new business, credibility with all my community work and not get into a physical altercation. I'm mentally devastated at this point but you helped me realize that it started in my childhood. That's how I fell into this trap, being codependent. Thanks! I'll let you know how it turns out. My story is incredible though and I've been documenting everything to write my life's story so others might benefit from it.

    i have gone through hell for 35 years, yet i feel i need the way i'm treated to have less hassle, although you are saying exactly what i go through, first it was my husband and now as well my son, he is 38 and he suffers anxiety and panic attacks and for that reason i must not say anything unless before a certain time, there is sooo much. i'm quite happy to be on my own , in fact i love my life on my own but neither sort there own life out.

  • foivoskaterina

    I remember vivd moments in my childhood where I would cry in RAGE for HOURS!! My parents would tell me to shut up and hit me for crying but I would be in rage/anger because I felt they didn't love me, I felt ignored and invisible!! My brain was in misery and didn't understand how to get my true emotions validated which my parents were supposed to do but didn't do it so my brain turned to RAGE! I'm 15 now and all throughout my life my family called me crazy/psycho and there's just that feeling where you know there's something wrong with you but you know you're not crazy, it's the most empty feeling in the world. I feel like I have bpd symptoms ?? Idk I react in anger now but I felt unloved in childhood and abandoned, is this codependent or bpd?

  • Lupita Lara

    my situation sounds very similar my husband is the mirror image of my father. nothing I do is ever seen let alone good enough. but my question is… is there no hope for our relationship? will he never appreciate me? will I ever stop needing validation from him? can there be compromises so our relationship can grow? we've only been married a year, living together for 3 years, and I'm drowning.

  • Carson Stout

    I remember when my mother married the 3rd husband when I was 7 and feeling so lost and so lonely w out HER. I'd bring my blanket in her room and lay beside her bed because she ignored me thru the day and replaced us w her husband. He was emotionally abusive and physically. My brother suffers to this day at 51(I'm 50). Before I discovered your videos.. I had no clue what I was dealing w w a checked out narc husband that always put me on the back burner for anything else he pursued. Work.. sports.. anything. I deserve better and I think most of us are hard wired in childhood to think we are the problem. And so when the marriage failks.. it's our P roblkem and we are the problem. In my case.. nothing was off limits so since I was pre disposed to chaos.. I married chaos then blamed myself..again.. for y I can't keep it together
