Lesson Two – Identifying Your Strengths And Weaknesses
Getting to know the real you after narcissistic abuse can be very challenging at first. The narcissist’s lies become very ingrained in a victim. It can be so easy to disagree with things that counter those lies. For example, someone telling you that you are attractive can be countered because victims think they are just being nice or polite, not stating a fact. This is why we are going to start out with things that will be easier to accept, things that are not a matter of opinion or good manners. In this lesson, we are going to identify your strengths and weaknesses. By identifying both, you will see a balanced view of yourself, which is easier to adopt than only focusing on the good parts. Think of this as a gentle way to start the journey of getting to know yourself.
It also will help you to remember that your worth as a person is not defined by your flaws or mistakes, but by your inherent value as a human being. You deserve love, respect, and compassion, regardless of your imperfections.
