I’ve always been able to adapt to tough situations, and I’ve faced my share of hard times. But none of those things were as difficult as overcoming Narcissistic Abuse.
There were plenty of dark days when I wondered if I’d ever get over the damage that was done to my spirit and soul. It took lots of prayers, self-reflection, and stubborn determination. Also, having insight unique to INFJ ‘s, helped bring me from the pits of hell to a very good place in life.
People sometimes mistake our sensitive natures for weakness. That’s a mistake in itself, because INFJ’s are anything but weak. Plus, I’m now able to use what I learned about myself, Narcissistic Abuse, and life in general, to help others facing what I already survived.
Being gifted in writing, and having a strong desire to help others, are traits I’m blessed with because of my personality type. Surviving narcissistic abuse helped me learn to use these gifts in a productive way. It’s a win-win situation. Not a wound that will never heal.
