    Paris & The Victim Playing Coercive Controller | Domestic Violence, Narcissistic Abuse

    In this episode of Narcissist Apocalypse, Paris tells her story of marrying a victim-playing abuser. At first, Paris was love-bombed in a way that set her heart on fire.

    It's a story putdowns, doubt, humiliation, entitlement, self-centeredness, stalking, church abuse, physical abuse, sexual coercion, emotional abuse, manipulation, coercive control, gaslighting, infidelity, domestic violence, domestic abuse, narcissism, toxic relationships, self-worth, patriarchy, financial abuse, and post separation abuse.

Supportive inclusive podcast

This podcast is a lifeline for folks. I have listened to so many stories, and it’s such a supportive and reflective place. Brandon’s care comes through so much. I think anyone who has any abuse, violence, narcissistic people in their lives in any way, or are looking to educate themselves would be very lucky to listen here. Cannot recommend enough ❤️
