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!
